These $300 gold controllers sold out in less than a week

New, 18 comments

A company called ColorWare recently released a limited run of these 24k gold-plated PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controllers, at an eye-popping $300 each, and sold out.

Only 25 of the controllers were manufactured, described by the company as sporting "the most desirable finishing technique on the market." They were announced on the firm's Facebook page five days ago, and have all been sold. Colorware specializes in "the idea that electronic devices could be more appealing than the standard colors offered by the original manufacture."

Of course, these are mere knickknacks compared to the gold consoles that were being sold last year, for $13,699.
