PlayStation 3 Development Kit DECR-1000 A (TOOL) Hits eBay!

Sponsored Links
309w ago - Today gourangaman656 let us know of a PlayStation 3 Development Kit DECR-1000 A (TOOL) that has hit eBay [Register or Login to view links]!

The seller is haly20, and at the time of this writing the current bid is only US $1,125.00.

Needless to say, if the auction doesn't get pulled over the next 10 days the price is likely to exceed $10,000.00 but still quite interesting as they are extremely rare to find!

What is so good about a PS3 TOOL over a PS3 Debug/Test console? Among other things, this unit can dump/debug the PS3 Hypervisor and Kernel... meaning PS3 Devs and hackers would LOVE to get their hands on one!

To quote: This auction is for a PlayStation 3 Development Kit, MSRP $10,250. It has been opened for photographing and that is all. BRAND NEW IN BOX. The console is sold as-is, with all accessories and manuals in English.

The system appears to have two slots for HDD's with HDD's already inserted, along with a Blu-ray slot. All photos are original and if the part you are looking for is not in the description, it is not included.

I will ship in the box that it came in. This thing is incredibly heavy shipping is as you see on the calculator. If you have any questions, feel free to message me.

How do these tool systems end up in circulation, kinda makes you wonder if sony is doing it just to boost sales of ps3!

Whenever a system gets hacked, everyone purchases one! Would love to grab one but too rich for my blood!

thats a few months morgage for that price!

i think more than enough ppl on here are willing to donate to the cause of getting one of them for the local devs. if gourangaman656 is mates with the guy selling then ask him to hold one back for a couple weeks (i doubt it would take longer than a month to raise the funds for this!)

get a decent fixed price off him and set the target for us all to donate towards

Might I suggest we start a fundraiser to buy one of these for one of the PS3 devs who might make the most progress with something like this?

And how the hell did he get 14 units of these?
