InsaneZucchini commented on Impressions: The Best Buy "Nintendo Experience":

@tchaten My Bestbuy did allow for 4 players to play Super Mario 3D Worlds. It only let 2 people play Mario Kart 8 at a time though.

We had to drive an hour and a half to get to the nearest Bestbuy that was participating and got there 3 minutes after the event was supposed to start, 1:03. There were already several people there wearing Luigi hats from playing the games themselves and people waiting for their chance to play and what not. It was a lot of fun and worth the wait, especially after getting an awesome Luigi Hat myself. My brother's wait time was estimated to about 2 and a half hours, fortunately it only took maybe half that to get to his turn.

See, this event was really amazing, it's a great way to reach out to consumers, raise an interest and make it possible to buy games or systems while they're there. We already own a Wii U and we still wound up spending $180+ on Nintendo games and gear before we left. Wish we'd brought the 3DS to join in on the streetpass stuff going on though. I wonder how many new Wii U owners they managed to gain through this event.
