Good news for those of you that like a spot of nostalgia and glamour in equal doses – gaming hardware developer Analogue has produced a 24 carat gold Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), which can be yours for a cost of $4,999.

Given that today’s technology has evolved significantly since the NES launched back in 1983, Seattle-based Analogue specialises in revamping Nintendo’s famous consoles for the modern age – think high definition – under the Analogue Nt brand.

In its own words, the company says of the NES: “Today, to experience its greatness, options are limited and riddled with compromises. The Analogue Nt sets a precedent. It opens a door to the highest quality way to experience the NES.

“We created the Analogue Nt to experience this pivotal part of gaming history with the quality and justice it deserves.”

Having achieved success with the $499 Analogue Nt, the gaming firm has upped the ante with the launch of a new model – a $4,999 version that is plated in 24 carat gold.

Just ten limited edition consoles have been created with the precious metal, a move made to celebrate the 30th anniversary since the release of classic game, The Legend of Zelda.

The $4,999 package will include:

  • 24 carat gold plated Analogue Nt
  • Premium limited edition box
  • The Legend of Zelda (original gold coloured cartridge)
  • RGB or HDMI upgrade
  • Full cable set or HDMI cable

Want to buy one? You’ll need to visit the Analogue website to reserve your order.

And to think you were told it was pointless keeping those NES games with the advent of the super-realistic graphical experience offered by the PlayStation and Xbox. Who’s laughing now?
