We've all seen some pretty fancy console mods in the past. Heck, maybe you guys even own one or two. The fanciest console that I ever owned was a red and black SNES that actually housed a NES inside it. OK, on second thought it wasn't really all that fancy, but this Nintendo Wii console that THQ gave to the Queen of England certainly is.
Yep, that's a gold Wii right there. Gold-finished, that is. It was given to the Queen of England by THQ to mark the launch of their new family-oriented mini-game collection, Big Family Games.
What, you thought they just gave out a gold Wii out of the kindness of their hearts? THQ's been having some financial problems of late, so I guess they're trying whatever they can to drum up sales. Maybe they remember this news tidbit from last year that said the Queen's a bit of a Wii gamer herself.
