Are you looking for a PlayStation 5 that can play all the newest games while also letting everyone know that you are a very important person with a ton of leather-bound books and an apartment that smells like rich mahogany?
Solid Gold and Crocodile Skin Controller
A Russian business named Caviar earlier this year claimed to create and market a solid-gold PlayStation 5. Caviar is best known for producing excessively extravagant “luxury” iPhones and covers.
It has now fulfilled that promise, but obtaining one will cost you some paychecks. Which means that even after working your entire life, you might not be able to afford one.
Caviar’s “PlayStation Prime” has been made from solid 18K yellow gold, as noted by PlayStation Lifestyle, and “embellished with delicate patterns for a light and airy vibe.”
Genuine leather and gold inserts are used to embellish the joysticks on the customized DualSense. Oh, and “quality ebony” was used to make the console stand.
My friends, this is as extravagant as it gets, and the price reflects it. The price of the PlayStation Prime is astronomical at $350,000, or around £260,000.
For comparison, that kind of money would purchase a good home in the North and Midlands of England as well as a one-bedroom apartment in London with a shared bathroom.
But hey, who am I to stop you if you want to spend it on a gold console? But you couldn’t lend me 10 pounds if you were reading this and had that kind of cash, could you?
There are only five of these unique PlayStation 5 models in existence, according to Caviar.
Although I’m not sure how quickly you’ll need to act if you want one, I would guess that there are currently enough scalpers out there who have made enough from the previous year to be able to snag a few of these. Stop letting them win.
