Do they tether the remotes to the kiosks or are there Yamauchi ninjas standing guard at each one?

We know that kiosks are starting to show up in stores. The question is has anyone seen a playable one yet?

To celebrate, were throwing a Wii party Nov. 4 from 9a.m. - 9 p.m. Come check out the newest innovation in gaming and enter to win some great prizes! The Wii demo stations are here to stay, but the Wii giveaway is on Nov. 4 only, so take the day and come join the party!

So likely more games than Excite Truck and Wii Sports but probably not TP, MP3. I have no idea. But 12 stations is awesome.

No, after the year was up, you'd have to square off with another junior member in a knife fight. Winner gets topic priveleges.

Ainnem, I'll be seeing you in the ring.

I meant to post this earlier but I was @ gamestop today when a man came in pushing a large rectangular box on a pulley with the words Nintendo on the side... it was obviously the kiosk..the store errupted in YESSH!! by the manager and some bystanders.
Sadly the unit didnt have controllers so the manager there said that the Nin rep would have to put it together... :)

I would have taken pics but i didnt have my damn cell phone... curses!!

The controllers are also not going to be tethered to the system. An EB/GS employee has to hand them to you and demonstrate. Basically, it's going to be tough to try and play the thing. Not too many employees are going to want to show the thing off to every single customer.

Just as a guess, I'd assume the first playable demo kiosks will have Wiisports and maybe excitetruck.

To see if the system is worth buying? I plan on buying one, but I would like to test it out first to see if the control is actually worth a crap.

I'm not saying the games aren't fun; I've played both, and they are.

But wow, just wow, on the PR speak.
