Most people are no stranger to customized gaming consoles, but how many are as blinged out as the Gold-Plated Atari 2600?

Old-school Ataris in great condition are probably worth a lot of money nowadays, but this Gold-Plated Atari 2600 will kick up the price value up more than just a couple notches. This retro console has been given the full Midas touch, from the body to the controllers to even the wires, in 24 karat gold. This alone could buy you -- well, a lot of the stuff that you've always wanted but couldn't afford. Not even the richest hip-hop artist can compare any of his chains and cars to this bad boy.

The Gold-Plated Atari 2600 is the third item from Urchin Associates personal project entitled 'Gold Mine, All Mine.'
