So does anybody know if their will be any in-store set-ups for people to try out the console any time before launch, like at GameStop, Walmart, etc? Not too concerned, but it would be nice to get a feel for what's coming and what to expect on launch day

I tried it out at Nintendo World but I guess that's only useful if you live in New York.

I'd ask for your impressions, but I'm the end, hands-on is the only way for me to get an accurate idea of something. The Phantom Menace is the bane of the series to most Star Wars fans, but it's my favorite in the series.

Well there's this but it hasn't been updated yet.

Doubt there is going to be anything for Columbus, OH, or in the state at all. There never is... Will be a nice surprise if I'm wrong though

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

Guy at GameStop today said 2,000 stores will be getting them on Nov. 8th and all others will have them within a week after release. He said roughly 1 store in small towns, 2-3 per city depending on size.

That's nice to hear. Although if I'm right I'll be on vacation in Florida during that week. Ah well, not like it's going anywhere after a week. Maybe I'll even see one in Florida!

^probably. He said its highly unlikely that at least 1 store in any town/city with a GameStop WOULDN'T get 1.

I vaugely recall some 3DS kiosks being set up in Disney World at one of the stores at or around the time the 3DS launched. It may have been in one of the Downtown Disney stores but I can't recall for sure. Maybe they'll do that with the WiiU as well. I'm in Disney World next week and I'll try to remember to keep an eye out for it. (Probably too early though)

I don't know about America, I assume this is where you're all talking about.

The PR Director of Ninty Australia said their strategy is to get the Wii U in the hands of the regular consumer where they can before launch. I would think that other territories would be similar.

Feel free to add me to any of the listed consoles or services here :D just let me know who you are!

@ lolwut huh why do you share the same pic than hd_visor did ? bros or just random ? is that a celebrity or something ?

well on topic only the shops / nintendo knows?
And yes it would be a smart move, but looking at the pre-order fanatism they could just think
" meh the people just buy anything if its new skip the demo stuff too expensive "

Well there is the rumor that on Wednesday we will see demos at Gamestops and Best Buys.

Most anticipated Wii U game:
Project P-100

Since it isn't going to be a launch title, it will not happen, but it would make my day if Pikmin 3 was one of the opening demos. But it's undoubtedly going to be NSMBU, which will still be nice to try out. All in all, I'm excited to actually test out the feel of a Wii U.

You all lied to me! You said that demos would been in Best Buys today and there wasn't one in mine! I hate you all!
Well okay I'm kidding, but I'm still disappointed. I thought a Wii U demo would be at my local Best Buy today, and I even had my mom with me so I could show her how the system works (I've been explaining to her about it, but showing it would be a lot better). But sadly it wasn't there yet. They said the Nintendo people will be there soon to set it up, likely before the week is out, but still I'm rather sad at the moment...

Same here! I was very excited to try it out, but there was only a poster with the Wii U on it..
