The Wii is probably the perfect system to use as a promotional item since most if not all the games are
shovelware that appeals to pretty much everyone. It’s actually quite rare to see a Limited Edition Wii.
Over the years we’ve seen the Metroid or even the extravagant Swarovski Wii. But this Promotional Limited Edition Wii is probably one of the only few i’ve seen over the years. MSN Canada’s Techs & Gadget’s Geektown ran a contest back in Feb of this year for people who “Like” them on Facebook (followed by an email with your info). The prize for the contest was this Limited Edition Glee Wii system hand signed by 8 of the cast members of Glee. One of the winners listed this on eBay (U.S. seller though). I’m not exactly sure how many they made since they didn’t mention it on the website. I don’t think this listing will stay afloat much longer either after this posting so make your offer quick if you’re interested.
This auction is for an Nintendo Wii with EIGHT ORIGINAL hand signed signatures by EIGHT cast members from the hit television show glee including: Amber Riley (Mercedes Jones), Mark Salling (Noah ‘Puck’ Puckerman), Matthew Morrison (Will Schuester), Dianna Agron (Quinn Fabray), Lea Michele (Rachel Berry), Kevin McHale (Artie Abrams), Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel), Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson). Each of the cast members has hand signed the Nintendo Wii in various coloured permanent ink markers
Various colored markers you say? Oh how cute..
$700 BIN with best offer (free shipping to U.S.)
I hate Glee 🙂
For what it’s worth, this is the second Canadian contest to feature a custom Wii as a prize. Back in ’07, Magic Pony and Udon did one with this prize. Only 6 were made.
