A whole month before the Wii U actually releases? Why Best Buy? This will just make the wait until release that much more unbearable. :(

I just want to hold the gamepad in my hand. That's all I want to do.

I just hope we get one of those demo units here in Mexico, A new BB store just opened a couple months ago near my place and as far I can remember the first BB store in my country had this girl (a cute girl btw) with a 3DS for testing ... :wink:

Watch. Someone's going to steal it due to poor security.

hmmm...hopefully their is a ZombiiU demo I was planning on having Rayman as my launch title but now the game is delayed I'm not sure what to buy. I was looking at ZombiiiU but it looks repetitive.

Don't worry, the Nintendo Ninjas are already there waiting for someone to try that.

Even though I'm going to a tour thing next weekend... I hope this applies to ALL Best Buys. They already have Wii and 3DS stations that I know of so it's very likely. Plus I have to go back and pre-order a launch game anyway!!

Shoot just got real.

Probably won't try it. I want the experience of Wii U to be brand new when I open it; did the same thing with the Wii.

IDK MAN, I remember back when we got Marvel vs Capcom 3 set up, the full game like a month before release. shovel was pretty packed.

Should note that Demo stations will start appearing Wednesday, they are set up by Nintendo themselves, and usually theres one rep per several stores. So I doubt there will be many set up by wednesday.

I hope they make their way to Walmart as well. I don't have any Best Buy stores close to me.

The ninja squad will take care of anyone suspicious enough for them. :O

Dang! I can't wait to play one! This is gonna be awesome! An entire month ahead of time is great too! It'll get more people in the know before the system comes out, and in the best way possible!

I think everyone who is anxious to hold the Wii U GamePad will be pleasantly surprised.

I just wanna hold the gamepad, that's all. I want to wait and experience the games when I get the system myself.

We have 2 Best Buys out here on Oahu. Not sure if we have any Nintendo representation though. If Nintendo wants, I will gladly be their rep for Hawaii. Sign me up.
