Earlier this week, GamesBeat reported on the $10,000 Xbox One that London retailer Harrods has for sale. This one-of-a-kind Xbox One is a bit different from the one you might own because it’s covered in real-gold plating … although I probably shouldn’t assume that you didn’t have your jeweler cover your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 in gold as well.

This extremely rare and expensive console got us thinking about some of the other rich-people systems in gaming history. We quickly found that the Xbox One wasn’t the first piece of gaming hardware covered with gold and that gaming companies sure do love giving expensive things to people with a ton of money.
