    I just found this on ebay they also offer a plating service if you already got a wii
    not something i would have done but i thought some of you may be interested
    they also do 360 ps3 and ds
    the ps3 is very tempting

    A gold plated Wii? I would think it would be more expensive than that.

    only someone who is willing to spend nearly twice the amount of the wii just for it to be gold it doesn't offer any protection just looks good.

    Lol I can see someone spending all that money, getting this done and having their Wii overheat and brick. I wonder what Nintendo would do if someone sent in a gold plated Wii for repairs.

    The gold plated DS lite looks pretty badass.

    It would be interesting but it would not be something I would personally pay for. I could not justify spending thath kind of money.

    Wait a second I thought the gold plated wii was made for the queen of some european place.
    Still you'll have to hire a guard for the wii in that case.

    It's easy to get anything gold plated,

    I doubt it will cause the wii to overheat, it still has the original air flow.

    It was supposedly the 'Queen of England' which was interesting as there has been no queen of England since the 1707 Act of Union. Perhaps they had a gold plated time machine also?
