Check Out the Legendary #00001 PS4 20th Anniversary and Much More in Sony’s Fantastic Tokyo Showroom

If you’re into games and tech, there are many interesting places to visit in Tokyo, that could easily be defined the world capital of all things geek.

One of such locations is the Sony Building in Ginza, where the house of PlayStation has its main showroom, which is actually made of four full floors of Sony goodness.

Of course it’s not just about PlayStation, as all aspects of Sony’s universe are covered, from cameras to TV (including some incredible panels¬†that would probably make console games look absolutely¬†amazing), smartphone, audio and… model railways.

Well… I guess the model railway isn’t exactly a Sony product.

The hall even includes a full-fledged British pub and a bar. Even the elevators are rather impressive, in their clean white design.

Of course, one of the biggest attractions of the Showroom, at least for a gamer, is the famous #00001 PS4 20th Anniversary, gone but not gone on a charity auction for $127,000. Unfortunately the payment wasn’t honored by the highest bidder, but Sony still decided to donate the amount to Save the Children and put the console under glass until a new home is found for it.

There are also some very spiffy limited edition PS4 and laser-etched HDD covers, which you can see in the gallery below, for a glimpse in one of the best geek heavens in Tokyo.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
