Back in 2009, ThQ, within the framework of the Big Family Games PR campaign for Nintendo WII, decided to make a very unusual move, covering the console with 24-carat gold and trying to deliver it to the queen of Great Britain Elizabeth II. Unfortunately, Her Majesty did not receive a gift in her hands, but one of the collectors managed to get the gilded Nintendo WII.
In October last year, this collector decided to put up a rare auction console by placing a lot on Ebay, where he raised more than 700 applications with a final amount of 300 thousand US dollars. But for some reason, the organizers of the site considered Nintendo WII “too expensive”, which is why the console cannot be sold from the “standard account of an ordinary user”.
Six months later, the collector found a way to sell Nintendo Wii and turned to the owner of the Goldin website, on which the lot was posted. At the moment, the final rate is 2,300 US dollars, which is much less than the amount that the owner could help out by selling the lot on eBay.
