a nice PR stunt i'm sure it will benefit wii-u in some way.

i mean to say i think its a nice way to bring more attention too the wii-u and the new line up of games.

I'm less excited about this because a kiosk is not in my area but think it's still awesome because you get to play E3 games and its still closer and cheaper than going to E3.

What would be even better would be to just release the demos on Wii Ware.

The whole point of this is to get people into the store to play the games, and buy a console then and there if they like what they're playing.

Smart strategy, but convenient to current Wii U owners, no.

None in Chicago, either?

There's one in Schaumburg, which is about 40 mins away, but why no Chicago?

It's one of the biggest markets...

To keep south-siders away?

IDK, it's weird that they would put it in Schaumburg instead of in the city.

40 minutes isn't that big of a drive. I drive around 45 minutes every day to get to work and 45 minutes back home. :P

Not in Chicago? Shocker, I live in Milwaukee, WI and there is one located on the southwest side of Milwaukee in Greenfield. So that is just a 10-minute drive on freeway for me. Yay!!!

Opting out of E3, but in turn taking the E3 to consumers via Best Buy. Smart.

It is, but I can't help but feel that there's a huge lack of them in some areas. Ex: Minnesota; Best Buy was founded here, yet I'm surprise to see that they decided to have the demo's 20 minutes away from the Best Buy in Mall of America (largest in the United States).

Not trying to downplay the Wii U there or anything, I'm just surprise to see only one area here with Wii U demo, and of all, much further from where I live XD.

For a company that has over 1,200 stores, I'm surprise it's only about 100 participating places.

I don't see why they couldn't just digitally stuff the content onto ALL best buy wii u's. Maybe they're doing up a more elaborate setup than filling the kiosks with new content, and so don't want to impinge on regular sales in all of there stores.

We'll find out soon enough.

They always do the Events in Richfield, since its headquarters. All the Musician signings, etc. infact I remember in 2003 I got House of 1xxx Corpses Autographed by Sherry Moon and Rob Zombie! :)

Your right. They need more exposure. I don't see this happening in my small secluded local BB.

Best Buy showing off Super Mario 3D. You know it will be games of their franchises.

Odd there's only one Washington location. With NoA being located there you'd think they would've done more.
