Holy excess, Batman! Featuring a level of bling that would make Snoop Dogg wince, this one-off, solid 18 karat gold Game Boy comes with a diamond-encrusted screen border, diamond set on/off buttons, and weighs more than twice as much (27 ounces) as the original version (11.2 ounces). It was commissioned by Aspreys of London, and is now on sale over at Swiss Supply Direct Inc., which describes the portable as "an unbelievable conversation piece." Well, quite.
Although you may balk at its $29,500 price tag, you do get gold-tinged copies of Super Mario Land, Golf and Monopoly for your outlay, mainly because there's nothing worse than having no games to play on your new solid gold console come Christmas morning.

That's hideous. I don't get why they chose to spend all that money on an ugly old Gameboy. Especially since the purple border and green screen clash with the gold. They should have done that to the DS.

That's like, the Marie Antoinette of Gameboys.

They should have at least used a Color. Golds a color, right? Right?? =.=

I'd rather use those precious materials for a ring, or something less... niche... or at least something general I could actually give to someone.
