Queen Elizabeth receives a gold-plated Wii

Buckingham Palace will be getting a special delivery today as THQ (a game developer) plans to deliver a golden Wii earmarked for the Queen.

The special Wii was created to mark the launch of Big Family Games, a collection of “24 unique twists on classic neighborhood games,” including golf, tennis, lawn darts and horseshoes, that comes out on May 22.

“Big Family Games is the ultimate Wii game to get all family members, from grandparents to young children, playing together.

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,” said THQ’s 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. We hope that she and the rest of the Royal Family enjoy the game!”
