The person that buys this controller must really be the biggest idiot in the world, whether they are rich or just average.

It ain't that serious. I could use that money to buy more games instead.

Wouldn't a gold controller weigh a lot and the diamonds in the buttons unconfortable to play with. Laughing
(I know the controller is gold-plated, but I couldn't resist making a Futurama joke)

If people could spend money on the instrument periphals that came out during the height of the Guitar Hero/Rock Band craze who are we to past judgment on the obscenly wealthy types who buy this controller?

friend: wow! what can it do?
you: ?? It's just a controller though

This is nothing new. People have been creating expensive merchandise with
rare minerals and gemstones. Its for rich gamers with money to burn.

For whom is this for? you aren't going to impress your "gamer buddies" and you aren't going to impress your "rich art collector" associates.
2 eccentric tastes that appeal to nobody, have fun with your overpriced controller that destroys your fingers assuming it works at all.

I bought 3, but I wouldn't recommend them.

They're not starting my XBox like I thought they would.

Going back to the plastic controllers that came with the SEGA.
