Golden Wii

Games company THQ have delivered a gold-plated Nintendo Wii to the Queen, in what some people have called 'a heinously lame publicity stunt.' Not us though.

They've done it to promote their new BIG Family Games, and obviously as the most privileged, wealthy family in the country what they need more of is fancy trinkets that they'll never use. Honestly, the French were right about something at least.

'BIG Family Games is the ultimate Wii game to get all family members, from grandparents to young children, playing together,' said someone from THQ.

'The Royal Family is arguably the most important family in the country so we felt that they had to have a copy of the new game, 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. We hope that she and the rest of the Royal Family enjoy the game!' Oh dear.
