YouTuber Linus Sebastian designed an Xbox Series X joystick from 1.8 kilograms of 18-karat gold. The cost of the game handle, which is not very easy to use, is 87.5 thousand dollars.
Microsoft launched the next-generation game console, the Xbox Series X, late last year. The software giant has kept the design of the Xbox game handle substantially similar compared to the previous generation in the next-generation game console. However, YouTuber Linus Sebastian made an “update” to the Xbox Series X joystick, which will be the dream of many gamers.
Linus Sebastian, who recently posted a new video on the Linus Tech Tips YouTube channel, redesigned the Xbox Series X joystick with 1.8 kilograms of 18-carat gold. Replacing the original, soft-textured design with a shiny and slick metallic design, Linus Tech Tips designed probably the most expensive Xbox Series X joystick ever.
The Xbox Series X is an affordable product at least abroad, with a price of $ 499. However, the cost of the Xbox Series X joystick, redesigned by Linus Tech Tips, is exactly $ 87,500. Therefore, this joystick, whose appearance is admired, is not considered a price/performance product.
Although Linus Tech Tips mostly uses gold material when designing the body, it has also used silver, zinc and copper alloy to make the arm more robust. Considering that this 18K gold Xbox Series X joystick weighs more than 1.8 kilograms and has a slippery surface, we can say that its use is not as “good” as it looks.
