Ladies and gentlemen say hello to the 24-karat, gold-plated Xbox One console. Isn't it so pretty?
No. But then again I probably won't ever buy an xbox one.
wouldn't buy one if it were for free with rebate.
4 free? I would want it, then i would melt it, then i would sell the gold and buy a ps4
i wouldnt buy it for $500 fun fact...i buy this golden x1 hook it up and it starts smokin or has that disc drive problem lol i wonder if its still under warranty.
Well a golden Xbox is something I would never use for myself I'd just sell it if I got it for free ...the same goes for a normal Xbox lol
That's just plain dumb.. I'm not a fan of XB1 but you've gotta be pretty dumb not to take one under those circumstances
really? hell thats just stupid! on topic hell yes its pretty!
But i am sure a Xbox fanboy would buy the box it came in for $2,000.
Take gold. Dump the inside.
UM HELL NO i wouldn't pay anything that have 24k gold wast of money plus it will melt or catch on fire
Eventually I might buy it from 2nd hand, but just maybe.
So how much does customer service need as collateral if you have to return it and want them to rush ship a new one?
yay, let's all turn this into a pro-ps4, anti xbox one flame thread from hell. awesome! you fanboys are so cool, i wish i could be like you too!
Yet you came into an X1 discussion post to share your fan-girl ways?
I would not pay that much for any console or PC or anything video game related, past, present, or future.
You couldn't play that much? What difference does it being gold plated have to do with playing games?? ? /s
I assume he meant pay not play.
What if someone is selling every system, every game, every future game, every future system and a state of the art PC that will always be a beast machine for that price?
I'd pay that. Never have to buy a game or game console again. Good deal.
I'd have to get on that train, that would be a good deal admittedly.
how much for a picture of it?
Are you my long lost Sister?
And now officially it's a Gold Brick.
Yea, with all that money I just have laying around.......... /s
i don't even spend 499$ why the fuck should i spend 9.750$
Oh but if it was a solid gold PS4 I am sure we would have way too many people drooling here on N4G. Stay classy.
HA LOVE UR COMMENT :)
Waste of gold.
I wouldn't even pay $499 for it.
Looks good in gold.. Makes me want to paint mine but just the vent section of it
What a pretty paperweight!
I'd rather burn my 9749 dollar.
I bet if this was a gold PS4 everyone would be jizzing all over this article
Not really. I wouldn't like that either. Gold scratches easily and looks really ugly in such a large quantity.
I'm quite surprised you have 6 agrees and ZERO disagrees right now, considering as of this writing your comment is a hour old. I guess they who shall not be named to protect their identity didn't make this far into the comment section yet.
I wouldn't buy one even if it was 500$!!!!!! Wink wink
IDK, what's gold at right now? Randgold Resources Ltd. (ADR) NASDAQ: GOLD - Dec 13 4:00 PM ET 64.08+0.27 (0.42%)
Seems like a waste of gold, honestly. It could've been used for something else.
I wouldn't pay for an XBox One
Isn't Gold bad for heat? Or is it better than standard metal/plastic? I am just curious because if I'm not mistaken, putting all that heat inside of gold wouldn't allow it to breath as well. So all these gold consoles probably don't function as well lol
It has a low melting point. Not so low that it would melt during normal operation I assume. The case is said to run pretty cool, but who knows what will happen in a couple years when things aren't as optimal. Gold is very conductive of electricity though. So should be careful about static discharge should you touch the thing. While unlikely, that discharge could maybe travel to the sensitive IC's on the main board. However, I agree, if someone buys something like this, they probably won't be playing it. If they had that kind of money to waste, they could probably just get a jeweler to do it much cheaper anyways. Gold plating objects isn't particularly hard or expensive...except for the actual gold.
Don't you mean "isn't heat bad for gold".
They should offer it for some charitable cause, probably could fetch even more than that..
Nope not $97.50 either
Yes ahaha gold is always going up :p even if its an xbox. Would give me more reason to sell it because i wont be emotionally attached :p
For that much money you could get a lot more gold than they used to plate this thing. It would take a long time to recoup that investment.
No. Unless there was enough gold in this thing that could be scrapped to make it worth it.
yes I would if i'm as rich as 50 cent but I'm not soooooo NO
Oh hell yea! http://www.luxurylaunches.c... I know one of you fanboys dropped the $5,000 for this PS3! http://luxurylaunches.com/g...
Those actually look kind of nice. Particularly the 2600. The accents on the PS3 buttons are a nice touch.:) Hate to sound like a fan boy but those two pictures you posted are cool, whereas I found the X1 on the article kind of gaudy. The PS4 could look cool if they kept the black between the top and bottom section in tact, and accented the buttons, and maybe changed the color of the light to something that compliments gold better. Blue is OK, yellow though doesn't match the gold, and white wouldn't look right.
No gold is highly conductive, this would be an ESD nightmare.
I would not even pay $499.99 for the regular Xbone 720p.
Gold Plated? at least make it REAL GOLD so people will actually wanna BUY IT
no, it's likely not worth the cost of it's own parts.
Sure if I was this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Hell no. Not even if I was him.
I wouldn't pay $500. Higher than $500 so stupid, unless the value is going to go up and up.
I'm waiting for the platinum ps4 to come out before i spend 10000.
I wouldn't pay $499 for a regular one...
I wouldn't pay... oh, I was about to say the same joke about 10 other people said.
