Up until now, we thought only Arabs loved the Gold plated stuff but it seems it a worldwide thing. There is a gold plated Dualshock 4 controller that would cost you $14,000. The controller is being sold by Brikk and comes with old-encased buttons as well.
The handcrafted premium controller is coated with 24K yellow gold and safeguarded by a triple layer of DLC protective clear veneer. They are calling it “exquisitely practical,” and designed for the gamer with impeccable taste.
The classic version of this controller would set you back $8,500 while the deluxe edition costs $14,000. The classic version only turns the PlayStation Button to Gold, 18K Gold to be exact. Meanwhile, the deluxe has every button coated in Gold.
If you can afford it, the controller is available on the official Brikk website. The controller will be delivered to you in 3-4 weeks.
THE CLASSIC VERSION INCLUDES A PLAYSTATION BUTTON MADE FROM SOLID 18K GOLD AND FEATURING SEVEN PERFECT DIAMONDS OF F/G COLOR AND CLARITY, TOTALING 0.25 CARATS. ALL OTHER BUTTONS ARE FROM THE ORIGINAL SONY JDM-055 MODEL CONTROLLER.
THE DELUXE VERSION FEATURES NINE SOLID 18K GOLD BUTTONS: THE ‘PLAYSTATION’ BUTTON, THE FOUR DIRECTIONAL BUTTONS AND THE TRIANGLE, CIRCLE, X, AND SQUARE BUTTONS. THESE BUTTONS ARE STUDDED WITH GENUINE CONFLICT-FREE DIAMONDS OF F/G COLOR AND CLARITY TOTALING 2.20 CARATS, MAKING ANY CONTROLLER RESPLENDENT.
As you may have heard already, PS5 is closing in on its release and once the console rolls out, we are sure to see something like this again. Back in 2014, we saw gold plated PS4 consoles for $30,000.
