This $4,999 NES will take your gaming back to the golden years

If you have just about $5,000 just burning a hole in your pocket, Analogue Nt knows what’s best to do with it. Dip it in gold.

“To celebrate the Legend of Zelda‘s 30th anniversary, we are releasing ten limited edition 24K gold-playted Analogue Nts. Every unit includes an original, gold-colored Legend of Zelda cartridge,” the site says.

You may remember Analogue Nt as the company that makes premium re-built Nintendo Entertainment System consoles using original chips to get a more reliable, un-emulated experience without all the hassle that comes with the old toaster-style NES. The standard model has an aluminum shell and runs $499, already a tough sell, while this gold-plated, limited edition model is priced at ten times that.

In addition to the Zelda cart, this gold NES comes with an HDMI or RGB hardware upgrade, premium box, and an HDMI cable. It’d better come with unlimited lifetime support, hand-delivery, and free hugs at that price, too.

If you’re ridiculously wealthy and love gaming (in other words, you’re Minecraft creator Notch), then you definitely need at least one of these.
