The world of vintage games and consoles is no stranger to gigantic price tags. A sealed duplicate of Super Mario Bros was as of late auctioned at a massive $660,000 cost, making it the most costly game at any point sold. Presently another 24-karat gold Nintendo Wii console is ready to be sold at a cost of $300,000.
The 24-karat gold Nintendo Wii console was originally made for the Royal Family, more specifically, for the Queen of England. The hand-crafted console was part of THQ’s PR endeavors to advance multiplayer party title Big Family Games back in 2009.
Be that as it may, the console never actually reached the Queen of England because of severe security conventions at Buckingham Palace. After being gotten back to THQ the console was purchased by authority and is presently available to be purchased on eBay with a royal price tag of $300,000.
The gatherer Donny states that the exorbitant cost will help him proceed onward in everyday routine and track down another place to experience in, according to a report by Gamesradar.
“The Royal Family are arguably the main family in the country so we felt that they required a duplicate of the game. Yet, we felt that Her Majesty the Queen wouldn’t want to play on any old console, so an extra-special gold one was commissioned.” THQ said in a public statement, as mentioned in a report by People Make Games on its YouTube channel in a video that covers the tale of the Golden Nintendo Wii.
The Nintendo Wii is as yet in working condition with no indication of heavy use. In addition, it is also being sold alongside its proof of authenticity and framed archives for the following authority to showcase alongside the console.
