We knew it was going to be expensive, but damn.
Caviar, the company that rolls out outstandingly expensive gold iPhones, announced it was extending the Midas touch to the PlayStation 5 in January.
At the time, the website did not list a price for its 18-karat plated console with matching alligator leather-clad controllers, and it’s probably because the amount you’ll pay for one of these golden geese is a headline in itself.
Caviar has revealed that it will be producing just nine of these golden PS5 consoles, with each sitting at a staggering $499,999 (£359,053).
The golden console is available from Caviar’s website now, but unless you have half a million dollars to throw on a shiny new toy casing, you’re probably not going to want to add to cart.

According to Caviar’s press release, the consoles will take about four months to create, and the company says it’s been working with a gold jewellery specialist contractor to develop a test sample. Caviar says it has 1,500 applicants so far.
Meanwhile, a regular, non-gold PS5 will set you back $499, and presumably works just the same.
