This gold-plated Nintendo Wii was made for Queen Elizabeth II.  Now on sale for $ 300,000

Fillerup is a collector of Nintendo consoles, with over 100 limited-edition versions in his collection, but the Royal Gold Wii is “easily the most valuable console I own,” he said. In 2019, when YouTuber “People Make Games” made a video titled “What happened to the Queen’s Golden Wii?” and public interest increased, Fillerup announced he owned the videogame console. Experts had earlier valued the console at $1 million U.S., but he is not looking to get that much for it.

“In England, it’s against the law for the royal family to accept promotional gifts, so it was returned by the royals,” he added. “In 2009, when (video game company) THQ learned that the Queen likes to play on Prince William’s Nintendo Wii, they decided to send her a golden Wii to promote ‘Big Family Games,’ their new sports collection,” Fillerup said.

For the first two years of owning it, Fillerup did not publicize the fact that he had the console. The seller, Donny Fillerup, told the Star that he acquired the unique console in 2017, for an amount he refused to disclose.

The highest offer he has received so far is in the mid-five-figure range, but he said he is willing to wait for an offer that is worthy of the “invaluable piece.” On the legitimacy of the device, Fillerup said the person who sold it to him provided emails from Nintendo, as well as THQ, the company who gifted the device to the Queen in the first place. There has been a lot of interest from buyers all over the world, he said.

“I don’t need more, I don’t want more. I just want enough for my own place.” “I have listed it for $300,000 (U.S.) because that is the price of an apartment in the city I live in,” he said.
