GS News - $10,000 Golden Xbox One + Steam Machine Unboxed!
Harrods reveals an Xbox One made entirely of gold, Sony denies fabricating the scarcity of PS4s citing that there is a genuine lack of systems, and a beta tester unboxes one of the first Steam Machines on YouTube.

If I ever get an Xbox one I am gonna have it painted with a zebra print and put some fuzzy shit on it...maybe some sparkles and glitter.
I was gonna say something about Steam but my glasses fogged up looking at Jess today. You lookin' fine girl!
Anyone else having a problem getting the words "DON'T PANIC" out of your head?
..(omg what a jerk).. yea i know, blame my testosterone
I'm having myself gold plated, actually. And I've had a giant robot built upon which I can hang from a chain like giant living bling.
Gold-plated gaming console = stupid is as stupid does. PT Barnum will be proved correct yet once again.
As for a Steam Box - I have one, thanks, it's called a pc: 3+Ghz I7, 16Gbytes ram, Twin SLI 780-cards and sin of sins, Win 8.1 that purrs along just fine thank you. I only throw in the specs to stymie the rabid Penguins before they troll in and tell me that my PC can't possibly perform as well as one from Valve.
I hope in six years, when Xbox one has long gone the way of the dodo, that car/house/clothes/rent payment you spent was worth it.
Yes plz I want a steam machine, I want to pay more for a pc because I can't operate a screwdriver and I want my pc to run nothing besides steam herp derp
that xbox would only be worth it if you could peel off the gold foil and it was made of chocolate underneath.
Slow day at the news desk. So I'd thought just come one here and ogle at Jess *ogles at Jess* =P. Yes I'm that bored :'D.
I kid you!. I'm not ogling at Jess, honest!.
Long after human civilization has annihilated itself, either aliens or the next dominant species will discover a golden proprietary device. Then, they will understand how we destroyed ourselves
Ok, what I don't get is, why would you make an xbox one out of gold, gold is a good accent not a good primary, second, make it out of diamond so when I drop it I don't accidently break the darn expensive thing :P
the ONLY way I'd buy a steam machine is if they dumped linux, moved to windows, and made the box 199$ or less.
Gold is highly conductive, so I want to know if that thing actually works. Maybe they were very careful and removed all the electronics before gold plating everything, but kiss built-in wireless goodbye. That thing's a faraday cage now.
And a darn good looking one too.
Wow, that was a shorty, barely 2 minutes.
Is there a kind of lacking in the gaming news or does the weekly episode of "The Gist" taking some of your time off monday's GS News?
Just wonderin', Great show still! =)
Ain't that hot in Syd.. :P you guys have great weather this week..Adelaide is gonna be 38 & 40degC tomorrow & Thursday. :( Sony would be wanting to sell as much as possible in holiday season..so fabricating scarcity would be kinda silly.
It was cool to see the new systems come out, but they feel like novelties already. There hasn't been a game I am excited for on any of these recent systems and the ones that have come out feel like rehashes of what can be done on the 360 or PS3.
The comments section is working! If it wasn't for your shirt, I surely would have started to panic =D
Nice to see that she's wearing tank tops and its all bright and green in the back ground, here is good ole Delaware, USA, its like in the 30's and we've had what 3 snow storms in the past week! Wow! Must be great living down under!
Hey comments working again :)
I'm excited about what Steam Machines and SteamOS can mean for gaming, as well as the Linux and open source communities in general.
Side note, those wood crates they sent them in, nice touch, very cool.
I'll have to look at the spec as many companies are releasing their own Steam Machine. And what they can do!
As much I don't have anything resembling the money required to buy one and it is horribly ostentatious, I have to admit that when I saw the gold Xbox One, I said "Oooh... shiny!" out loud.
@snugglebear Can I come hang with you on Ralphie?
...Oh by the way, I named your giant robot Ralphie.
@ZombrexHaha that was hilarious :)
@Godlikan Long after human civilization has annihilated itself, either aliens or the next dominant species will discover a golden proprietary device. Then, they will understand how we destroyed ourselves.
@Godlikan That's not the whole quote.
@Dark_Master-k You can pre-order one from Amazon if you really want and have it delivered after new year.
@LethalMigraine In other words, you want it to run like shit.
@amdreallyfast At least you wouldn't have to worry about an EMP taking it out.
@ACMC85 They feel like novelties already because of the times we live in. 8 years ago when last-gen came out, a lot of social media was still developing. Now everything is integrated and news reaches us instantly, so information and news on the systems comes too quickly and doesn't mean as much.
