While ordinary earning people or even managers of a small private firm consider flinging a moderate amount of money on a new iPhone or an expensive dinner at a 7 star hotels with friends and family, people with wealthy background and plenty of cash in hand can go for purchasing big houses, luxurious cars, going on foreign trips or even buying insanely expensive gaming consoles! After all as the economics goes, when there is supply there must be a demand. The following are the top 5 most crazily expensive (with the approx. prices mentioned in the brackets) gaming consoles that will blow your mind.
Nintendo Wii Supreme ($481,250)
Till date, it’s the most expensive video game console ever made. The game system is designed by Stuart Hughes of Goldstriker Internationalis and molded with 2.5 kilograms of 22-karat gold having the front buttons decorated with 19.5 karat diamonds, a combination that can make any woman go gaga about you. At a price of nearly half a million, deservingly enough, only three of the Nintendo Wii Supreme systems have ever been built.
Playstation 3 Supreme ($323,000)
The system is encased with 1600 grams of 22-karat gold and 58 half-karat diamonds decorated exterior and comes at a dazing price of $323,000. Deservingly enough, it took twelve weeks in total to complete the entire system and like Nintendo Wii Supreme only three of these systems were ever constructed.
The Emperor Workstation 200 ($40,000)
The mammoth set up comes with three LCD screens, a Playstation 3, an LCD touchscreen interface, a leather recliner, an independent lighting system, an integrated webcam, a Blu-ray player, and noise cancelling headphones. The entire system once turned on isolates you from the surrounding and consumes you to give you the gaming experience of a life a time. All this values don’t come cheap either with the price being an amazing $40,000.
Xbox 360 Gold Faceplate ($36,000)
In 2005, Microsoft came up with a version of Xbox that has a front plate made up of 999.9 ounces of 24-karat gold and tagged it with a price of $36,000. It had all the functions of a normal Xbox but with a far more expensive, literally, look.
VRX Mach 4 Racing Simulator ($25,000)
If you want to have the ultimate driving knowledge without actually leaving the house or want to feel the thrill of cruising in the busy city streets without getting caught by the cops, then VRX Mach 4 Racing Simulator is the thing for you. At a price ($25,000) of an actual new car, it comes with a package of a Microsoft steering wheel, four Xbox 360s, an LCD screen, three 37-inch televisions, , a Bose surround sound system, a vibration system and amplifier, LED lighting, four copies of the game Forza and personal bar refrigerator and of course, to experience the driving video game to a whole new level all together.
It’s hard to imagine how a small section of the population is blessed with huge amount of money in their locker and who can just splurge them randomly extravagant, often non-productive, things just to entertain themselves. Gaming industries target this overwhelmingly rich section of population and brought these and more game accessories just to cater the “needs”. Although, every game lover wants these gaming consoles but very few can afford. The market demand is also very less because of the less demand. The duplicate versions of these mind blowing gaming consoles are also available in the market. You need to be careful before choosing one.
