For the gamer who has everything: Harrods selling gold-plated Xbox One for $9,774

We have reported in the past about a gold plated version of the iPhone 5S being put on sale for thousands of dollars, but what if you are a hardcore console gamer with some money to burn? In that case, Harrods might be able to help you out with a special version of Microsoft's Xbox One console.

Reddit reader "SirSyhn" was walking inside the well known UK retailer Harrods over the weekend and spotted a 24-karat gold plated version of the Xbox One on display. The impressive looking gadget has an equally impressive price; Harrods is asking £6,000, or about $9,774, for the gold game console.

Needless to say, that's a price tag that would make all but the super-rich squirm. It's currently unknown if Harrods just has the one gold Xbox One unit for sale or if it has a few more stored in the back. We have contacted Harrods for more information about this unique gift and if there have been any takers. In the meantime, you can just sit back and imagine what it would be like to play Dead Rising 3 on a console that costs over 10 times the price of a normal Xbox One.
