In a PR move garnering much attention, publisher THQ has presented HRH The Queen of England with a gold-plated Nintendo Wii system in Buckingham Palace today. The specially made system also serves to comemorate the release of the publisher’s latest casual release on the Wii, BIG Family Games, a collection of 24 alternate takes on classic family passtimes like horseshoes and tennis, a copy of said game being an additional gift for Her Majesty.
“BIG Family Games is the ultimate Wii game to get all family members, from grandparents to young children, playing together.” said Danielle Robinson, THQ Product Manager, “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!”
