Now I like to think of myself as a gamer. I understand some people’s need to get the latest games, the latest console, and the very best console immediately. I understand these people, but Sony has just one-upped everyone. The ultimate PS3 collector’s edition is a 24-karat gold-plated Playstation 3 that comes complete with two matching controllers and a one-year warranty.
The price: starts at $4999. You read that right; that’s the ‘starting price’.
Now if we all ignore the fact that no one, absolutely no one, need a gold-plated Playstation 3 console, this is quite a gift. However just imagine what will happen when the warranty runs out. You probably need to hire security guards just to send it for repairs or maybe even an armored truck (or two).
A 24-karat gold-plated Playstation 3 console that is priced at $4999? Let the bidding begins!
