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."

Father: "Uh..."

Mother: "I looked it up. It's about $315,000."

Father: "...uhhhhhh..."

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?

I just ordered now. Oh I can't wait to be homeless with a supreme ps3! I might not have a T.V. to play it, nor food or water to sustain myself but I will have a *supreme ps3*. Seriously who, except Bill Gates will buy this?

@Bugzbunny109 - Seeing as how you bought 1, that would leave 2 available.

Maybe 50 Cent and his G-Unit could pool together some cash and buy one....

....put a strap on it and call it a purse, and Paris Hilton would probably snap up the last one.

If anyone would pay $315 000.00 for a console, then they are either

a) have money up the ying yang
b) Be insane

Purchasing this would definitely be an indicator of having more money than you have sense. I think only rich people come up with this stuff to sell.

You can get places that cheap over there? My mother-in-law's house is down to 1.2 mil because she's 1.1 miles from the water. Her friend, literally across the street just sold hers for 2.6 mil. We're talking a street and a curb between them. lol

The sad thing is it'll look just like every other PS3 after 5 minutes, with an inch thick layer of dust on it.
