While the PlayStation 5 should normally cost around $ 499, the out-of-stock price spikes its price up to the point that available units are fetching gold. Moreover, speaking of the famous precious metal, Caviar , a Russian jeweler renowned in the production of customized items, has covered a PS 5 console outright.
Called Golden Rock , this PlayStation 5 is covered with 20 kilograms of gold. And as if that weren't enough, in order to make this item even more luxurious, Caviar wrapped the grips of the console controllers in crocodile leather . You must therefore suspect that the price of this PlayStation 5 is well over $ 499.
In fact, we can already predict that this kind of customization will surely displease Sony . Indeed, for the production of simple interchangeable personalized plates for the PS 5, the Japanese firm has already taken legal action against CustomizeMyPlates .
The Golden Rock, a PlayStation 5 that costs an arm and a leg
The 20 Kilograms of Gold that Caviar used is only applied to the exterior of the Sony console case. Thanks to eight sheets cast separately, the Russian jeweler has thus succeeded in ensuring that the rendering of gold on this console really gives the impression of being in front of a mineral consisting of gold, hence its evocative name.
As for his shifters, as noted, Caviar covered the grips with crocodile leather. They also have a part covered with gold, embellished with the signature of Caviar.
Regarding the price of this extravagant PlayStation 5, the jeweler has not yet communicated any information. However, according to various estimates, if the gold used to cover this PlayStation 5 is 24 carats, this console would be worth well over $ 1 million.
An extravagant concept, which will not please Sony
As we have learned from the CustomizeMyPlates case, Sony is against this kind of customization. As a reminder, following the marketing of unofficial interchangeable plates for the PlayStation 5, Sony has taken legal action against the company.
And for the Golden Rock, which is currently talking about it on the web, since Caviar has developed it without any authorization from the Japanese manufacturer, we can already predict Sony's reaction.
For those interested, further details are available on the official Caviar website.
