Like the legless Peach and double hand cannon Samus amiibo, the batch of PS4s that missed the spellcheck stage of production will probably be sold for thousands of pounds in a couple of weeks.

Admittedly it's not something glaringly obvious, unless you're familiar with the periodic table or are in the business of making steel alloys. The 'caution' message next to the Diamond Dogs logo warns against using molybdenum lubricant - except it actually says "molybdeum".

Make sure you hold on to your sides to prevent them from splitting with all of the laughing that you must be doing. You'll be laughing all the way to the bank if you've already got your hands on one of these.
