For the game player who has everything, a gold plated Xbox One is now available to buy in Harrods.

The normal version is practically sold out but a gold-plated Xbox One is now available to buy in Harrods at a cost of almost £6,000.

The 24 carat gold version is priced at £5,999 and there is just one model in the world.

The gold plating doesn't cover the controller- that comes as standard.

The console was manufactured by Microsoft and was then gold plated by customisation company Crystal Rocked.

Other products include an iPad Air made with Swarovski crystals priced at £1,599 and Gold plated Dr Dre headphones at £1,489.

The Xbox One is normally priced at £429 and features a 1.75GHz 8-core processor, 8GB of RAM and a GPU capable of generating 1.32 teraflops of processing power

The Xbox One was released on November 22 in 13 global markets and has since sold over 2 million units, averaging more than 111,111 units sold per day

Yusuf Mehdi, vice president of marketing at Xbox said: "We continue to be humbled and overwhelmed by the positive response from our fans. We are thrilled to see sales of Xbox One on a record-setting pace"

Microsoft said that demand is exceeding supply and the Xbox One is sold out at most retailers.
