Golden Wii Meant For Queen Elizabeth II Now Up for Auction

With Nintendo’s extensive hardware library over the years, there have been several consoles that have seen plenty of success. One of these was the company’s leap into the seventh generation with the Wii, Nintendo’s fifth major home console. It released in 2006 and appealed to a broader demographic than ever before, with a larger focus on motion-controlled video games. The console’s influence was so clear that competitors Microsoft and Sony created their own peripherals, the Xbox Kinect and PlayStation Move respectively. Nintendo’s console would go on to sell over 101 million units, becoming the seventh best-selling console of all time.
