At the end of last year, Caviar decided to expand its portfolio. The company, which previously produced only exclusive versions of smartphones, announced a modification of the PlayStation 5 game console, dressed in a solid gold case. The precious metal panels weigh 4.5 kilograms. The exclusive console starts at an impressive $ 499k.
It may seem that there is hardly anyone willing to give half a million dollars for a game console, but the company has already received 1,342 applications for its purchase. Basketball superstar LeBron James reportedly ordered the PlayStation 5 exclusive, “famous Russian businessman living outside of Russia“And”no less famous American businessman working in the field of information technology“. Caviar says the console takes about four months to build.
For the case of one console, 4.5 kilograms of 18-carat gold are used. The panels are crafted from eight individual sheets of solid gold cast into an intricate geometric shape. In addition, the DualSense controllers will be adorned with genuine crocodile leather, painted black.
In addition to the gold version, Caviar will produce 99 copies of the PlayStation 5 each in carbon fiber and black leather cases. The controllers for the set-top box will be finished with the same material as its body. The carbon model will cost $ 5,830, and the console in the case covered with leather will have to pay $ 8,140. All three versions will lack the optical drive.
