24K gold-plated PS5 limited edition console due out this year – looks expensive

If you’re filthy rich and don’t care how much the PlayStation 5 is there’s an extra limited edition that’ll cost ‘a few thousand pounds’.

Given the financial problems most people are experiencing thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the cost of the next gen consoles has become of vital interest – which is really frustrating because neither Microsoft or Sony has announced anything yet.

Of course, if you’re rich it doesn’t really matter how much they are. And if you’re super rich then… why not just get a gold-plated PlayStation 5 instead of the ordinary white one that everyone else will be stuck with.

Luxury firm Truly Exquisite has announced a ‘Special Limited Luxury Edition’ of the PlayStation 5 that comes with a 24K gold finish. Or, if you’re down to your last million, there’s a cheaper 18K rose gold edition or the option to have a platinum version.

There’s no indication of a price but there was a solid gold PlayStation 4 released a few years ago that cost £8,400. This is only gold-plated though and is estimated to be merely ‘a few thousand British pounds’.

How much Sony are on board with all this isn’t clear from the company website but Truly Exquisite are claiming that the limited edition console will ‘most probably’ be out in December, with ‘probably no more than 100 pieces released worldwide.’

If you’re interested you can register your interest on the website, which also has mock-ups of gold-plated controllers and a headset.

Whether there’ll be other standard versions of the PlayStation 5 that come in different colours is currently unclear. References to a black-coloured console have popped up recently, but it’s uncertain whether they’re real or not.

But even if other colour choices don’t happen this year they’re bound to appear over the course of the console’s lifetime, just as they did for the PlayStation 4.
