Queen Gets Gold-Plated Wii

Nintendo to release the Wii in gold for the Queen of England.
If Queen Elizabeth decides to play some video games, she could do it in style -- with a gold-plated Wii!

Entertainment software developer and publisher THQ commissioned it to mark the launch of THQ's BIG Family Games line.

The Queen won't have to wait in line like everyone else for Nintendo to release a Wii console in any color other than white.

"BIG Family Games is the ultimate Wii game to get all family members, from grandparents to young children, playing together," said THQ product manager Danielle Robinson.

"But we thought that Her Majesty the Queen wouldn't want to play on any old console, so an extra-special gold one was commissioned," he added. "We hope that she and the rest of the Royal Family enjoy the game!"
