Maybe they won't show nintendo land because it's multiplayer based. or because half the wiiu owners get it for free anyway. they want to persuade customers to buy games i guess. Thse other demo's will be there without a doubt

That didn't stop them from Demoing the Wii with Wii Sports, and more recently Mario Party 9. It really is perplexing, but I guess they wanted to show off an exclusive (ahem, "exclusive") game that still makes good use of the controller, in order to show they're serious about third-party support.

I had the pleasure of stopping by local GameStop, and they had the demo unit. Their particular unit had only one playable demo, Rayman Legends. The game is pretty awesome. Of course, I really enjoyed the first one so naturally, I would like this one. I was somewhat disappointed that I didn't have a chance at playing ZombiU. That seems to be the game everyone is raving about.

Awww, was expecting more levels in the Legends demo today, ah well...that "Rocking" something level was awesome. xD

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...

I completely agree. The rocking level was extremely funny.

So do all the demo stations just have Rayman Legends? That's all I've heard anyone mention.

Anyways, I got to try the thing out last night and loved it. Once again, the only playable demo was Rayman Legends (which I felt didn't give the biggest example of the gamepad other than the second half of the first level). Still, the graphics were breathtaking, I have no doubt it easily overpowers the current gen systems. The controller was comfortable, lighter than it looks and easy to use. Well, it was awkward when I had to use the motion control but that could just be the fact that it was on a cord for the demo kiosk. I didn't get much time to observe the gamepad's graphics but from what I saw it looked nice. Touch screen was responsive as well as the motion controls.

As for Rayman... I will admit Castle Rock was the best of the two levels, which disappointed me because it didn't utilize the gamepad features. There's something about platforming to epic rock music, though. This definitely will be a day 1 purchase (whenever that day may be).

Once again, it would have been nice to have one or two demos that are actual launch games. I hope they update it with more demos or something.

My local GS has one set up! But the TV screen was off...? So all I can say is that the game pad is bigger than I though, but upon holding it, was surprisingly light compared to its size. The screen looks pretty and crisp. The buttons were smooth as well.
That's all I can really say.

Do I even play?

Well, Best buy just become placed on my "most hated retail chain" list at the top.

I went to try the wii u there, after having fun at gamestop, and there wasn't one.

But here's the stupidest thing. The guy I was asking if they had any preorders kept saying this stupid thing that "Wii U preorders are sold out, there will be no more shipments until september 2013", even though I told him that wouldn't make any sense.

He then claimed that "Nintendo sent it to us in a letter saying that".

When I went to try doing their nintendo zone to calm myself down, IT WAS DOWN.

What did the guy say this time? "Best buy connect is available, there is no such thing as a nintendo zone."

THEN WHY WAS THERE ONE FOR THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF?

So yeah, Best buy is NOT a good idea to demo wii U. Do Gamestop instead.

I did it at Best Buy. Best Buy owns the crap out of GameStop. You just ran into a dumbass employee.

Price Match + Customer Service + Better sales makes me a happy gamer (although Amazon, eBay and ocassionally other store offer a nice variety). I've run into far more idiotic employees at GS then any other gaming store (though when they make mistakes, it's awesome. $7 MK7 and $25 NSMB2)

No demos at the Best Buy here, but I did find and play Rayman at GameStop! I can confirm that Kansas has the Wii U!

I went to my local Gamestop to pay for the rest of my pre-order, and they had a demo unit sitting there with no one playing it. So, I checked it out. Like everyone else said, it only had the Rayman Legends demo on it, but even that was very nice, as I got to see how clear and smooth everything was. It played rather well too. Even the Gamepad, while a bit bigger than I expected, handled quite well. It was a little uncomfortable to hold, but that's because it was tethered by a wire that didn't allow much freedom, especially with how short that wire was.

For the 10 or so minutes I played it, I very much enjoyed it. Just 16 more days....

As a whole, GS is a good company. It's just that in most places there are a lot of poorly-owned GS stores. Here in Iowa, there is hardly a bad one here!

Just got back from pre-ordering NSMBU and Zombie U from the local Gamestop and they had one there........ But some chick was hogging it up from the time I arrived there to the time I left, which was about a total of 20-25 minutes.

I really didn't have time to wait around on her, so I left. I tried to throw a hint and said "yeah, I haven't played one yet.........................................".

Their trade-in values usually suck compared to just selling it on eBay, but I'm not complaining since I don't trade in stuff.
The treatment of game boxes there is complete suckage, with the plethora of stickers on every side of the box.
They've been known to scam users before as a whole company (could link some articles in a bit)
And then there are the problems that go from store to store. Dumb or unknowledgable employees (rather common), jackass employees (also rather common), poor maintaining of the store, THE SMELL

GS has bad reviews from consumers and employees alike, and the amount of each implies that its more of a company-wide thing, not just "alot of poorly owned stores".

Just tried out the system and Rayman Legends demo today. Fantastic game! However I can't help but wish that the buttons (start and select especially) were more recessed and less squishy. ;)

Sorry to hear that. There are four of them where I live and two are so-so and two are exceptional.

My local Best Buy had the same Demo Station. The first day I found out they had it setup there was someone playing it for way too long for me to check it out my self. I don't blame the guy, because it was so awesome!

I had a chance to check it out a couple days afterward and found it so much fun! I had a friend with me and he thought the game selection and layout was the final OS for the system and I had to explain to him its the demo software, not the actual OS. It definitely concerned me that he thought that because I wonder how many others thought the very same thing. I hope the average consumer understands its a Demo kiosk!

One thing I noticed with the Gamepad at Best Buy was the "screen-swap" button was just a placer, not an actual button. The Gamepad felt really good in my hands as well; anyone else like the weight and feel of the controller?

Trade in values for games like the pokemon games are actually very good. 8-10 dollars each. And the game boxes aren't hardly abused at all in my store, if ever. They take out a sealed copy from under the counter every time I ask to buy a game new.

I think the reason people unfairly hate gamestop is due to the fact that anyone can manage one and they don't really get watched by the administration. Therefore if it's a dumb manager, it's not a good store. (I once was in a bad gamestop where they literally allowed you to get on a preorder wait list for games that didn't exist that they thought would exist later. Some of the silly examples include MW4, Pokemon scarlet, New Super Mario bros 3, Animal crossing wii U, ETC. Never went to that store again)

I just ran into a demo at Target this morning. The controller is way bigger, yet way lighter than I expected. There were nothing but videos, no playable demos.
