PS4 20th Anniversary Edition preorders begin, sell out in minutes

It was less than a week ago that Sony announced its special edition 20th Anniversary-themed PlayStation 4 console, featuring a gray paint job to match the original PlayStation system and limited to only 12,300 units worldwide.

And they can even save their progress and reclaim it if and when they decide to buy the game after all.
