    They gave the Queen shovelware, absolutely disrespectful.

    How could they do such a thing?

    Give the Queen a quality game such as Mario, Wii Sports, or Legend of Zelda

    Gold? Not platinum?

    It goes to show you that even in these hard economic times, the Queen must settle for less.

    It would have been better giving it to someone who actually deserved it.

    If they made a wave-at-the-plebs simulator for her she'd never have to leave the house. Philip could have a servant beating game to remind him of the good old days.

    I wonder if the Queen will actually play/use her "pimped out" Wii even if she did receive shovelware with it [​IMG]

    She should put it on ebay. The gold does nothing to improve the gaming experience. Seriously, the gold will probably affect the wifi.

    Awesome. No time like a financial rating downgrade and deep recession amidst major job losses to announce to the world that one is a wasteful twit.

    Good work.

    They could have given along with the wii, a gold plated DSi with improved cameras and Drawn to Life. Her Majesty must feel insulted by the shovelware..... But then the president of my country don't even get things like this.....

    There hasn't been a Queen of England since 1707, so I'm pretty sure that's not who got the Wii.
