Queen Elizabeth Gets Golden Wii

Queen Elizabeth Gets Golden Wii
So let's say you're a video game company with a new release called "Big Family Games" to promote. You've decided it'd be a great gimmick to send the game to one of the world's most famous big families -- namely, the Royal Family of England. And, more specifically, to its matriarch Queen Elizabeth.

Of course, there is one problem with your plan -- the Queen doesn't have a Nintendo Wii. So, now you'll have to get Her Majesty a royal console, but wandering down to Wal-Mart to pick up the same Wii that every other schmuck has just isn't going to cut it. What to do?

Well, clearly the answer is to have a Wii specially constructed and plated in gold (though we expect not real gold). Yes, games publisher THQ is indeed creating a special one for Queen Elizabeth. Now the 83-year-old monarch can take a break from her busy days of ribbon cuttings and celebrity appearances to take on Prince Charles and crew in Wii versions of games like golf, lawn darts, and bocce ball.

Buckingham Palace will be overrun with the Queen's grandchildren this summer, that's for sure. [From: Gizmodo]
