Nice, the closest one to me is in West Nyack, NY. That's about 15 miles from me. That's not too bad.

What the hell... Total hype deflate.

Reggie made it seem it was a nationwide Best Buy campaign. Im not driving 40+ mins for E3 demos.

Weak sauce Ninty

EDIT: But they cant throw those demo's on the eshop along with the trailers? WEAK

this would be great. I live in Italy and also if I usually join the post-E3 Nintendo tours to write previews, I'd be happy to be able to share demo with others

No Canadian locations yet, although I'm certain the Best Buy at Yonge and Dundas in Toronto will be the location.

I wonder how they're getting these demos out to 110 stores – seems like a good chance someone might leak some info before some games are announced.

Bleh, none are near me.

Makes me wonder though, are these E3 demos exclusive to retail because Nintendo is worried about games freezing, or is this just a lame money hat from Best Buy?

Should just make all the demos available for download. Hopefully they will have more than one booth available at Best Buy.

Wait, really? One Best Buy in Minnesota and they're doing the one in Eden Prairie? Not the one in the Mall of America?
