- The Nintendo Wii has positioned itself as the gaming console for everybody. As it turns out, that includes the Queen of England.
Well, sort of. It's not like Her Royal Highness went down to Wal-Mart and bought one with her summer job savings. Rather, she was given a special version by gaming company THQ.
To quote: Buckingham Palace will be getting a special delivery today as THQ plans to deliver a golden Wii earmarked for the Queen.
The pack will also include a copy of the newly released BIG Family Games, as Philip, Charles and the rest of the royal gang compete for the living room crown.
The publisher hopes the PR stunt will amuse Queen Elizabeth, though we hope the 83-year old monarch doesn't throw her arm out swinging the console's presumably heavier gold-plated remote.
