You Can Pre-Order A $10,000 Gold PS5 This Week
This week you can take self-care to the next level, by treating yo'self to a 24 carat gold PS5 - you're worth it, lads.
Luxury retailer Truly Exquisite is accepting pre-orders from tomorrow (Thursday 10 September) and you can pick from a gold, platinum or rose gold console.
All you need to get your hands on one is a sweet £8099 ($10,500) - small change TBH.
If you want to save a bit of dollar, you can always get a slightly less fancy version for a bit less.
To justify it to yourself, the price includes two matching DualSense controllers, and even a PS5 3D Pulse headset - it's basically paying for itself, isn't it
If you feel like you want and deserve more than just a bog-standard PS5, then this is clearly for you. You even get a 'luxury wooden display box' and free shipping and insurance - bargain.
But the more 'extra' gamers among us will want to act fast - there are 250 of each model and finish to go around and then they're done.
