Obi-Wan, owner of the finest beard in the galaxy, knew his shit. A ‘wretched hive of scum and villainy,' he called it. But not Mos Eisley Spaceport. Hell no. The old dude had just been scowering eBay for tickets to Tatooine's Tit-tastic Topless Tango Night. Somebody had bought all four hundred of them, and was auctioning them off for fifty times the original price.

Whenever there's a limited edition item, there's some ballache on eBay trying to fleece everyone else for it. As we know, some people live by the mantra shaft or be shafted. Others take that to extremes, and become ‘shaft, shaft and then shaft some more. Who's the black private dick who's the sex machine to all the chicks? SHAFT!' people. They're all bastards.

Feast your eyes on the 20th Anniversary PS4. This little slice of sex was introduced to celebrate the PS1‘s birth in 1994, and is fully pimped out in that retro gray color scheme I remember so well. There aren't many of these bad boys to go around, and... you know where this is going.

eBay assholery, that's where it's going. The special edition console is limited to 12,300 units worldwide, and instantly sold out upon arriving on Sony's online store. And so, as Kotaku reports,
‘On eBay, numerous resellers are auctioning off "confirmed preorders" for the console. Right now, all these resellers have to show are their email confirmations for the console, yet... some of them are asking as much as ten thousand dollars.'

It's even more unscrupulous than usual. Hit the link for more on this.
