Hi , it's been a while without a Blog post and we will talk about a very rare system !
We just found recently an auction on ebay and the seller was the Product Manager of the F1 series !
The system was released in 1997 for the game Formula 97' and only 20 made in the world which make this console one of the rarest of the Playstation 1 systems !
Here is a quote of the description of the auction still on going !
"'I was the Product Manager/Product Development Manager for all the F1 games from 'Formula 1' that went out with the launch of PS1 through to the subsequent games from Electronic Arts. I worked for Psygnosis Sony and EA. I dealt with the FOA and all the teams to market the game worldwide with my managers in the different territories. I commissioned the Jordan branded PlayStations and there were different designs. The buzzin hornets were part of their branding. It came at a time when tobacco branding was limited at some races so buzzin hedges was used.'
I was the Product Manager for the PlayStation game F1 97 and commissioned a small batch of limited edition PlayStation 1 Jordan GP yellow consoles. We were working with the team at the time to promote the launch. I was allowed to keep one and I've had this stored away for over 20 years. It's never been used. I don't have any of the other items such as lead controllers etc as these were used at the time on another plain console."
The console is brand new and yellow colored with " Jordan Grand Prix " written on it !

you obtain it? We will try to answer all the questions here.
