A 24 karat gold PS5 console is on the way, and with it will come a gold version of the PS5 DualSense controller.

Right now, Sony has only officially announced the white model of the PS5. However, Truly Exquisite has taken it upon itself to venture into other colours, although may have gone a bit too far in some people's eyes. The brand has confirmed that it will produce PS5 consoles plated with 24 karat gold, platinum and 18 karat gold - and there will be a controller and headset to match.
