Queen gets golden Wii from THQ

Along with a mini-game collection.

What do you buy the woman who has everything, including GBP 40 million of public money every year? A golden Wii, of course.

That's THQ's thinking - they've specially commissioned a gold-plated console and delivered it to Buckingham Palace. It's all part of plans to promote BIG Family Games, the new mini-game collection launching today.

As "the UK's ultimate family", not to mention the most powerful unelected institution in Britain, the royals will also get a free copy of the game. It features 24 mini-games including "golf, tennis, ladder golf, lawn darts, horseshoes, bocce and more". BOCCE!

"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 exec 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!" Just like they enjoy all those free holidays and parties where they get to dress up as Nazis.
