We know most of our readers can’t afford the PlayStation 5 Golden Rock, don’t feel bad, we can’t too. Nevertheless, Caviar has two other more affordable versions. There is an Alligator leather version with bits of 24-carat gold that is priced at $8140. There will be 99 pieces of this version.
The third version is the Caviar Sony PlayStation 5 Carbon and it is covered in the “most durable car carbon”. The gamepad also gets the same treatment. The price tag on this version is $5830 and just like the Alligator edition, there will be 99 pieces made available too.
