Simply beautiful. But completely unnecessary. Those are the first thoughts that come to mind when describing Analogue’s 24-karat gold NES. It’s their latest of beautifully designed NES‘ and was created to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of Legend of Zelda. This time around, though, it’ll cost you $5,000 and only 10 will exist. Safe to say it’s beyond limited edition. I’d feel a little out of place firing up my gold plated NES just to play Ice Hockey. But I’m sure 10 people in this world will enjoy doing just that. They’re the same type of folks that buy $18,000 watches. I’m not one of them – even if I had the money. [via: The Verge | source: Analogue]
