Gold, diamond-studded Wii going for almost $500k

Consumer electronics bling-modder Stuart Hughes has transformed the $200 Wii into a £299,995 ($491,000) console. The device took six months to convert, and features 2,500 grams of 22 carat gold and 19.5 carats of diamonds on the buttons. Only three units were made.

Some of you out there may be asking: "Well, what do I do if the Wii breaks? Who handles the warranty?" If you're asking that question ... well, frankly, you can't afford this luxury in the first place.
