January 18, 2009 // 3:05 am - Today gourangaman656 let us know of a PlayStation 3 Development Kit DECR-1000 A (TOOL) that has hit eBay HERE!

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.

That is definitely GOOD to know and I will pass the word along, as hopefully one can end up in the hands of the resident PS3 Devs... it would definitely come in use towards unlocking the retail PS3 consoles indeed!
