Wii Sports: Resort launch event

Posted by Darren Calvert

Head over to NYC and don't forget your bucket & spade!

Nintendo will be transforming New York’s famed Military Island in Times Square into an urban island getaway to celebrate the launch of Wii Sports Resort for the popular Wii video game console. On July 23, anyone who visits this Manhattan landmark will be able to take a mini “vacation” courtesy of Nintendo, complete with a sandy beach, swimming pool and tropical lounge — all smack dab in the middle of the city — plus a rare chance to play Wii Sports Resort in advance of its official July 26 release date.

Be one of the first in the country to play Wii Sports Resort and experience the next chapter in the Wii Sports phenomenon.

Thursday, July 23, 2009
9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Military Island/Times Square
7th Avenue and Broadway
Between 43rd and 44th Streets, Manhattan, NY 10036

Hm, WSR is listed for the 24th here, does that mean Europe is getting it before the US?

Should be in the UK... after all, it is an island! ... but not so much a 'resort'.

I just found out that military island isn't really an island. I hope I can go, but I might be on vacation.
