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.

I'd love to take my kids and go, but it's too far to bring my SHOVEL and PAIL.....hehe
Oh the midwest and how the big stuff doesnt happen here.
Thinking about pre-ordering this. But I think I'll wait for the review.
I'd love to go.... but I live in the wrong country. Oh well, i'll definately be buying this.
