Good news everyone, you will be able to pre-order your PlayStation 5 in just two days time! Woohoo! All you need to get the new console is an internet connection, a complete lack of taste, and eight grand in cash. That’s because this is the very special Truly Exquisite 24 karat gold plated PlayStation 5.
If that’s just a little to audacious for your tastes then you may prefer to buy the 18 karat Rose Gold (£8099) or the Platinum PlayStation 5 (£8199) instead, and they all will ship with a suitably covered PlayStation 5 camera, two Dualsense controllers, and a 3D Pulse Headset. Only 250 of each finish will be made and they will be delivered free of charge in a luxury wooden display box.
The question is, do Truly Exquisite know something we don’t? Will the standard PlayStation 5 be available for pre-order on the same day?
The luxury gold PlayStation 5 will be the latest in a very long line of custom consoles. Microsoft recently announced the ‘Wonder Woman Golden Armor Xbox One X Console’ is covered with 24-carat gold leaves which will be will be auctioned off in aid of Together for Her, an initiative launched by the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, leading humanitarian organization CARE, and the Entertainment Industry Foundation to stand in solidarity with women and girls around the world deploying funds and supporting the global response against domestic violence during the time of COVID-19
Now you might be thinking a gold plated console, or indeed a furry console, might cause a few heat issues and you would be right. “Please note, that all the Xbox is for display ONLY, not gameplay. Prize and the successful bidder will also get a standard Xbox One X,” say Microsoft.
They also revealed The ‘Barbara Minerva Xbox One X Console’ has been inspired by Wonder Woman’s archenemy, and features “an intricate snakeskin pattern and faux leopard fur for a truly wild appearance” along with silver spikes on the top and front of the console and a gold “Wonder Woman 1984” logo.
They have also created the less impressive ‘Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth Xbox One X Console’ which is, well, and orange Xbox with a bit of rope stuck to it.
