Sony Computer Entertainment Australia have today announced their plans to auction a rare 20th anniversary PlayStation 4 console which has been signed by the “top dogs” of Uncharted franchise developer Naughty Dog. The money raised from this auction will be in aid of ‘You Can’, Sony Foundation’s youth cancer project.
Money raised will go towards Sony Foundation’s national youth cancer project, You Can. Through You Can, Sony Foundation is building much needed, specialised youth cancer centers across Australia which aim to improve survival rates of young cancer patients by facilitating the collaboration of medical experts, development of specialised treatments and the opportunity for young people to be amongst peers in an age appropriate environment.

The 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4 console is already rare, with 12,300 consoles in existence, only 150 of which were available in Australia.
