The most expensive video game consoles are certainly no joke when it comes to price. You’d better have some deep pockets if you’re thinking about buying any of these, as they’ll set you back anywhere from $1,200, right the way up to $433,000! Here is a list of some of the most expensive gaming consoles.
PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition – ($1200)
This is the 20th-Anniversary Edition of the PlayStation 4. Released in 2015, this rare console was purposely designed to look like an original PlayStation 1 and we think it looks awesome! Numbers were limited and you could only get your hands on one if you pre-ordered it or were lucky enough to win one as a competition prize. This console was more than just looks, as it also came with its own unique theme, which added a PS1-style dashboard and included the original PS1 sound on boot up!
Seaman Christmas Dreamcast – ($2,500)
This console was manufactured in a translucent red color and only 850 were made in Japan, which made getting one extremely difficult. The Christmas Dreamcast was a big hit in Japan and consequently all 850 consoles were sold. If you were to get your hands on one now, you’d be looking at paying somewhere around $2,500 for it, which is a small price to pay to own one of the rarest video game consoles of all time!
Cuphead Xbox One X – ($3,000)
The Cuphead Xbox One X game console was designed for a launch event in Los Angeles, in 2017. Only four consoles were ever made and they were all given away as prizes during the event. If you were one of the lucky few that managed to get your hands on one, and still own it, you could be looking at a console value now of around $3,000!
Beatles Rock Band Xbox 360 – ($3,600)
For all the Beatles fans out there, this one’s for you! This hand-painted game console was sold at auction to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. But, it was not the only one, as a few more hand-painted consoles were made and given away as prizes in an Xbox Live competition.
Pokémon 2009 World Championships DSI ($4,000)
These cool looking Nintendo DSi’s were given away to lucky fans at special Nintendo events over the years. The DSi features unique Pokémon decals that were consistently changed year on year. However, not all models are worth as much as the 2009 edition, which is worth somewhere in the region of $4,000. If Pokémon is your thing, and you’re serious about collecting Pokémon collectables, then try hunting one of these rare video game consoles down and see if you can grab yourself a deal!
24K Gold-Dipped PlayStation 3 – ($5,000)
The tenth rarest game console is the 24K Gold-Dipped PlayStation 3, which you can expect to pay around $5,000 for in today’s climate. You’d be the only one of your friends with a Gold PlayStation 3, and, you’d feel like a boss every time you play it.
These are some of the most expensive games console ever made. There are more in the league which are costlier than these as well.
