A new study by H & T reveals how much it costs to actually buy the most iconic objects in video games.
H & T looked at the world’s most popular games and evaluated the estimated cost of props based on material, purpose, and rarity.
The survey includes some of the most famous items such as Sonics Gold Rings, Minecraft’s Diamond Pickaxe, and Mario Kart franchise’s Banana Peel.
Sonic the Hedgehog Gold Ring will bring you back £ 5.8bn cool
The most expensive item on the list is one of Sonic the Hedgehog’s Golden Rings, worth £ 5,800,000,000 ($ 7,700,000,000). Estimated to weigh 256 pounds per ring, the price of pure gold on this scale is extreme!
Second place is Minecraft’s diamond pickaxe. If made of solid diamond, it will bring you back an astonishing £ 5,000,000,000 (46,700,000,000). The pickaxe weighs 4668 carats and is the largest diamond ever mined.
Next is The Legend of Zelda Master Sword. Carbon steel weapons cost fans £ 1,800 ($ 2,394).
At the bottom of the list are some of the most iconic game items ever. A cardboard box similar to that of Metal Gear Solid is only 62p, and a Mario Kart style banana peel is only 2p!
