Stuart Hughes Supreme PS3 Costs More Than Your House
Father: "What else is on Johnny's Christmas list?"
Mother: "I think we got everything...but the last item is a PS3."
Father: "Oh, we can do that."
Mother: "But he specifies here...it says, a "Stuart Hughes Supreme PS3."
Mother: "I looked it up. It's about $315,000."
Not long after we told you about the 24kt gold PS3 Slim, a flashy, some would even say gaudy, machine that can be bought for around $5,000, something even more insane has arrived. And when we say "insane," we mean over-the-top, unbelievably absurd, cost-more-than-a-house insane. It's the PS3 Supreme specially designed by Stuart Hughes. The entire outer shell has been reformed with circa 1,600 grams of solid 22ct gold and both sides of the disc loading entry sport 58 individually set 0.50ct Flawless diamonds which total 26ct." Only three will be made so if you want to snag one, we suggest you act now. Sell off everything you own, work about ten thousand hours next week, and maybe you'll be able to afford it, because it costs £199,995, or roughly $315,000.
Now, they're calling this gaming for the "elite," but I'm not sure that's accurate. I'm thinking this is gaming for the "hopelessly decadent." ...I don't sound bitter, do I?
