Nintendo Wii Supreme – World’s Most Expensive Gaming Console

If you’re one of those Wall Street bankers that still made off with a handsome bonus this year and are wondering what to do with all that money burning a hole in your pocket, why don’t you consider investing it in gold? Gold wrapped around a Nintendo Wii console, that is!

Yup, nicknamed the SUPREME, this version of the Wii has over 2.5kg (over 5lbs) of 22ct gold. The buttons on the front are of course made of diamonds (total: 19.5ct).

Hey, at least this is a £300k investment that you actually get to play with!

Stuart Hughes is a company well-known for pimping out electronics, like cell phones.

“Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10” will be bundled with the MotionPlus. There are only a few games announced that will use the new functionality but expect Nintendo to announce more at E3. Wii MotionPlus comes out on Mon Jun 8.

Living With The Wii Fit

We have been using our Wii Fit for just over a month and it has been a fun addition to our household activities. The kids have their favourite games (ahem exercises) of course and we have used it so much we have had to change the batteries already! Overall it has been a worth while purchase and I now wonder why I put off getting one for so long!

I have been wondering if there are any other games around that use the Wii Fit board – can any Gizmos readers recommend anything? It has to be relatively straight forward so my under fives can play it too.

Other than that the music game looks quite fun.
