But back to the Wii Supreme which, understandably, is already being dubbed the “World’s most expensive games console”. Stuart Hughes and his associates spent six months lovingly crafting it and then buffing it to an impossible sheen. Small wonder that the asking price is a not entirely unreasonable £299,995.


To give this thread a purpose and meaning, post some pimpin' gadgets.

I don't think the PS3 is expensive. It's quite versatile, especially the older versions that support other OS's than the Ps3's own, and considering it's got some serious hardware in it, it's not expensive at all. Getting a Blu-ray player and a PC with enough hardware to stand uo to the Ps3 would be quite a bit more expensive.

EDIT: Lol, should've read the thread first.

Nobody better buy a gold-plated Wii with the intent to actually use it. One, it would overheat, Two, wtf is the matter with you?

The PS3 Blu Ray player is comparable with the Sony BDPS550 (at £280) and is much faster than pretty much every Blu Ray player on the market. I work at a hi-fi/home cinema store, and we'll recommend the PS3 over Blu Ray players below the BDPS550, even though we don't sell PS3s

But a PS3 is the same price and plays top of the range games. No blu-ray player does that.

of course, why spend your money on anything you might actually need, like food clothes, an education for your children, when you can buy a golden wii!

It's not gold-plated. It's actually made of 22K gold.

That said, it definitely would overheat like crazy, and it would be a bitch to haul around, since gold is heavy. But then again, maybe they threw in a liquid nitrogen cooling system, too.

there was a dimand encusted mobile on sale in selfridges in birmingham for about £15000 a few years back and it never had a cam

Yeah, that was kind of my point The PS3 sells itself basically off of the Blu Ray player alone.



Oh, I see.

If anything it would stay cooler than the plastic variety considering gold is quite the thermal conductor...

This.
I don't understand why anybody thinks it would overheat. Gold is the best conductor of heat and electricity of all of the pure metals. Unlike plastic, which is an insulator and would hold the heat inside near the electronics, the gold would absorb the heat and allow it to more easily get to the air outside of the console, away from the electronics.

I liked the Wii when I had it, enjoyed it alot. Shame my family didn't


The Ps3 is good, tis really good...

It is expensive I guess.........but bearing in mind what it's capable of it's cheap-ish

Cuz it's gold, which holds heat very well. And, btw, this is the dumbest idea Sony ever. The only use I can is a model.

Basically, "I'm rich; I have a solid gold-plated PS3. I never play it. It's just there so you all know I have a solid gold-plated PS3. I have a regular one in the cabinet for when I actually want to play PS3 games."

Because I know shit all about that sort of stuff. I figured the system would get really hot and fry the electronics.

So, basically, the case itself acts as a very large heat sink?

I'm sorry I don't know a whole lot about heat conduction.

The case would be a large heat sink, and the heat the came from the case when it reached maximum heat capacity would go to the air, rather than back to the inside of the console.
I think, anyways.

That's the concept of the MacBook, which uses an aluminum case/heat sink. Works pretty well.

Gold doesn't hold heat well. It conducts heat well, it also releases it well. The gold case would be like a giant heat sink.

Hm, I learned something about heat conduction today.

A lot of people ITT are very confused though. It's one guy making 3 gold Wiis, not Nintendo opening up a line. Sony isn't making gold PS3s either.

1. Sony aren't involved at all
2 It's a Wii being goldplated
3 A third party person is doing it
4 The PS3 in the images is also by the same person
