Caviar PlayStation 5

Caviar is known for making luxury electronic items by adding the most expensive materials including diamond and gold on the already-existing products. The brand has now announced that it is making a custom PlayStation 5 for $499,000. For the unaware, the regular PS5 costs $500. So what do you get for a 100,000% increase in price? The answer is, gold!

Caviar has made a console covered in 4.5 kilograms of 18-carat gold and a crocodile leather-clad controller, which makes it a $500K PS5. According to the company, only nine of these consoles will be made. Moreover, it says that it has already received more than 1,342 applications including from the NBA star, Lebron James.

Golden Rock is assembled from 8 sheets that have been cast in solid gold. As per the images, it seems like the Caviar is only selling the digital edition of the PlayStation 5.
