I have a bunch of limited edition console auctions to unload with a couple of odd balls. First up is this “The Beatles” Limited Xbox 360 Console, which only 50 were made.
Back in 2009 Microsoft held a charity event for “Doctors without Borders”. They were auctioning off a custom painted Xbox 360. Painted on the 360 console is the opening cinematic of The Beatles Rock Band game. Supposedly that auction finish at $17k.
That was not the only way to get one of these custom consoles. Xbox 360 owners who downloaded the single “All You Need is Love” for The Beatles Rock Band would also be entered into a contest to win one of the consoles and a Rickenbacker 325 guitar controller.As you can tell this was pretty hard to come by. These consoles are obviously official with each console being numbered. This particular console was numbered 4 of 50 made.
The seller says: “I was lucky enough to win this console in a competition to raise money for Doctors Without Borders (see article here http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2009/12/win-the-ultra-rare-the-beatles-rock-band-xbox-360.html). I will donate $1,500 of the proceeds of this sale to this worthy charity, plus any amount raised over $10,000 (for example, if bidding reaches $11,500 then I’ll donate $3,000 in total).I’m also very lucky that my employer matches any donations I make so that means the total paid to the charity will be doubled!”
I’m not sure if the charity for Doctors without Borders is one of the strings on eBay’s charity list, but if it is the seller should consider linking it to his account. He also says that his employer will match any donations made from this auction.
Other Video Game Auctions:
Dark Knight “Joker” Themed Limited Xbox 360 – 110 of these were made, 55 of the Bat mobile, and 55 of the Joker.
Sony PlayStation Midnight Blue 10 Million Model Console – “April 2 1998- PlayStation sells its 10 millionth game console in North America; SCEA institutes a national consumer sweepstakes by giving away 100 Midnight Blue “10 Million Model” PlayStation game consoles. This is your chance to own the holy grail of all PlayStation consoles! i bought this years ago and used it once to see if it worked and it did.(?)”
The next seller has some limited edition consoles that are very rare. Just check out how much his R.P.D Dreamcast console sold for! If it is a legit transaction I need to update the top 10 list.
