Looking for a gold-plated games console to go with this gold-plated iPhone 3Gs Supreme? Then you might be glad to hear than Goldstriker International have turned their gold dipping attentions to Nintendo’s Wii to produce the world’s most expensive gaming console: Nintendo Wii Supreme. The extravagant creation is once again the work of Stuart Hughes. While the iPhone 3GS Supreme was ten months in the making, he has managed to dunk a Wii in gold and slap on a few diamonds for buttons in just six months.
That’s easy to say, but we can see how it might be time consuming to coat the console in over 2,500 grams of 22ct gold and affix 78 x 0.25ct diamonds, which total 19.5ct, to the front buttons. It doesn’t appear that the gold plating extends to the Wii-mote – which is probably just as well since a flying Wii-mote is bad enough, let alone one with the extra weight of gold plating.
If you think a Wii Supreme would make a great gift for the person who really does have everything then you better be quick. Stuart Hughes will only be producing a limited edition of three gold plated Wii Supreme consoles, each at the impossible to pass up price of GBP 299,995 (approx. $482.000 USD).
