E3 In-Store Demos

Everyone has been discussing Nintendo's "new E3 strategy". Basically, instead of a press conference, they're doing multiple Nintendo Direct broadcasts. But what they're also doing is partnering with Best Buy to give fans around the world a chance to try out demos of their upcoming games. And the Eden Prairie Best Buy is among them! Along with demos, they will also have Luigi Loot and hot Wii U offers.

    I agree with Scott, we waited in line together and talked to Deiter for like 2 hours and still didn't get to test the new games, we eventually left..

    Hm. I understand why they only did this at one Best Buy in Minnesota, but it would have been nice if that one Best Buy had more than one Wii U set up.

      Instead of waiting in line for multiple hours to play a demo of 1 of 4 games, I think I'll just wait 4-12 months and play the full versions of all four. It's just the way I roll.

    4 or 5 units would have made this event much more enjoyable.

    I'll be bringing multiple 3DS systems complete with the spoils of the latest E3 spotpasses. I'll probably be getting there a little after 5 and leaving a little before 7pm. Feel free to share your thoughts about Nintendo's lineup and just hang out and kick Microsoft while their down. Either way, enjoy yourselves!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
