Bling gold 24-karat PS5 goes on sale for £8,000 – and it looks incredible


CASH-FLUSHED gamers can fork out for a gold-plated PlayStation 5 from Thursday – but the scheme may be part of an audacious scam.

The unofficial £8,000 console shipped by UK luxury goods website Truly Exquisite apparently comes with a golden controller and headset.

Sony has confirmed the PlayStation 5 will hit shelves ahead of Christmas 2020 but has yet to set a release date for the high-powered console.

It’s not clear when Truly Exquisite’s consoles will ship to customers, or whether they exist at all.

“The long awaited and much anticipated Sony PlayStation 5 just got even better,” the firm, which claims it is based in London’s ritzy Mayfair area, writes on its website.

“We can not wait to start custom making these true beauties.”

The console is covered in 24-karat gold plating, according to Truly Exquisite

According to Truly Exquisite, the console, headset and controller collection are plated in 24-karat gold and start at £7,999 for the set.

Other versions plated with 18-karat Rose Gold or platinum are available starting at £8,099 and £8,199 respectively.

Pre-orders open September 10 at 3pm BST (10am ET) and ship anywhere in the world. Each item is limited to just 250 pieces per model or finish.

Truly Exquisite says it blings out gadgets and other items and sells them to wealthy customers looking to stand out from the crowd.

On its website, the firm lists gold-plated iPads, iPhones, Beats headphones and even bejewelled trainers.

It’s not clear if Truly Exquisite is a real luxury goods brand or part of a scam.

The firm has a listed address in Mayfair, where it has been based since 2013, according to an official government register of UK companies.

However, the register, called Companies House, does not verify the information of businesses who file details to it.

Sony’s PS5 console will hit shelves in time for Christmas

A scan of Truly Exquisite’s social media feeds reveals few photographs of gold-plated products they purport to make.

Similarly, HOAR could not find photos of Truly Exquisite products uploaded by customers to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

Lat year, the brother of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar launched a similar “gold” smartphone scheme. He later went to court for allegedly defrauding customers.

HOAR has reached out to Truly Exquisite for comment.

Sony finally unveiled the PS5 in June during a live-streamed event. The console is due out by the end of the year.

The Japanese tech titan has yet to reveal how much the console will cost despite being only months from release.

The PS5 will run at 8K and will come loaded with a super-fast processor that will practically eliminate loading times.

A handful of games such as Godfall, Outriders, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and more are due to arrive when the PS5 launches.
