Many Wii U Demo Kiosks Popping Up All Across Canada

Before the Wii U becomes available for sale on November 18th, you can head down to your local gaming retailer to check out what all the hype is about. (Best Buy Canada, EB Games, Future Shop, Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Wii U)

I definitely gotta get to one of these kiosks somewhere so I can try out the Wii U

The system is a lot of fun.

What a boot Ummerica eh? I live in South Central Texas, and we've been neglected. Sure Austin has a butt load of 'em on display, but San Antonio had 1 on display last I checked, and it's one of the most heavily populated cities in the US. Oh well, guess I have to make a drive up 35 and check one out before launch. Glad our friends way up north are getting to check 'em out too. It's too damn cold in Canada to not have electronic devices to keep you guys and gals warm at night.

Same here. There's nothing like opening up a brand new shiny system that you've never played before.

I think I'm gonna end up in the same boat. Like my above post says, San Antonio only has 1 Wii U demo station, and it's on the South Side. I live in a city between Austin/San Antonio, so either way I head, it's gonna be a drive. Six days left, and I want to at least try it out before picking it up... don't know if trying it will make me more or less excited. Maybe going in a complete virgin is the best way to do it.

Going to Walmart and Eb Games tomorrow so hopefully these kiosks aren't being hogged by anyone :)

If you're going to walmart anyways please remember to pick me up some underwear.

You can find where the kiosks are here. Just enter your zip code.

We have one set up here at our local Wal Mart in Charlottetown PEI. I dont know if it was because it was a weekday night but there was definitely no line up of people wanting to try it out. The controller with the touch screen is bigger than I thought it would be though. Had a few preoaded videos of Batman Arkham city, Zombie U, Darksider 2 and a few others games. Couldn't really figure out how to get the demo game loaded :S Not be because the machine was complicated to figure out or anything.

Yeah most of our stores in Winnipeg got them set up as well. The demo you can play on ours is Rayman. Gotta give it to Ubisoft, they've got 8-9 titles coming out in a short period so, they know how to capitalize on the consumers.

I went to the newly opened Toy R Us today and they had one set up there as well. Like you in Winnipeg it only has Rayman as a playable demo.
