The opulent version of the new gaming console will be covered with eight sheets, which will be carved geometrically to fit on the PS5.

It is revealed that it will take about four months to make one console ready and Caviar has taken the help of a jewellery contractor to make the gold chassis of the gaming console look as polished as it can. The controllers are made up of genuine crocodile leather painted in black.

There will be a total of nine gold-clad PlayStation 5 sold at a whopping price of $499,000 which is close to over Rs 3,61,00,000, which is just speechless.

Caviar, in a release, said, “Since December 28, the company has received 1,342 applications for the new product. Among those who showed interest in Golden Rock was the famous basketball player LeBron James, the company also received inquiries from a well-known Russian businessman living outside Russia and an equally famous American businessman in the IT field, whose names are not to be disclosed.”

While we may assume the number of takers will be less, that’s not the case. It is suggested that the company has received around 1,342 applications for the same, out of which some belong to the rich business class, one is a basketball superstar LeBron James, and many more unnamed people.
