Nintendo UK has today announced it will officially partner with HMV when it launches its new console, Wii, at midnight on 7th/8th December 2006.

"The action kicks off from 11pm at HMV, 150 Oxford Street, London with the chance for everyone to come down and play launch game Wii Sports against top sporting celebrities including Ian Wright, Jodie Kidd, Pat Cash and Ricky Hatton."

We already have respect for anyone that dares step into the Wii ring and beat Ricky Hatton at his own game, it can only end in tears. Is it worth heading down there? Hell yes, the first 200 buyers will snag themselves a limited edition Twilight Princess tin, shine get!

"Those getting there early enough in the queue will be lucky enough to get their hands on their very own Wii consoles, games and goodie bags just in time for Christmas. Stocks are limited so get there early to avoid disappointment.

In addition, the first 200 people purchasing the critically acclaimed launch title The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for Wii will receive a very special strictly limited edition The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess tin to store the game."

Excellent, we'll hopefully get our Official Photographer™ down to the event to snap all your photos.
