For the low price of £7999.
Microsoft claimed the talk of the day over the course of the last few days as it both unveiled its long rumored Xbox Series S as well as finally, for the long of God, revealed an official date and price of November 10th. The ball is now in Sony’s court for them to show their cards, but in the meantime, if you have some very expensive tastes you can get an early jump on the system.
As announced via Truly Exquisite, on September 10th, you will be able to preorder a PS5. But the twist here is that it’s covered in Gold. Starting at the low price of just £7999 and going up to £8299, you can get your hands on this special edition system in both the digital edition and disc drive edition. You can also buy gold plated versions of both the DualSense controller as well as the official headset. You can see all details at the official website through here.
It’s not clear if this has any indication of when we can expect to get the system for us poor people who must get the regular, non-Gold version, but most likely it’s just a promotional thing. We still don’t have a date or price for Sony’s next system, but I imagine it’s safe to assume that it probably won’t be anywhere near 8 grand for the mainstream version. Probably.
