    Different date, different topic, different locations, different playable games, different hours, not hosted by Gamestop, new topic [​IMG]
    Anyway, I'm about 300 miles to the closest city of those 4 (Chicago, Los Angelos, New York, San Francisco) getting them. Anyone going to be able to try it out? If so, try to sneak in one of the "known working" flashcarts if possible.

    EDIT: Nintendo's confusing me. It clearly says March 11th on their page I linked to, but the Schedule lists them as starting as early as March 7th. Your guess is as good as mine when it starts. Either way though, It will definately be playable tomorrow.

    Goddamnit, it always has to be in the big cities.

    The closest one to me is probably a 5 hour drive.

    San Francisco is only about 20min away from where I am, but I'll save my excitement for March 27.

    1 - You must be, the event is tomorrow only, March 11th. This is March 10th.
    2 - They only last one day form what I read, so if you go this weekend, you'll be too late to try them.

    EDIT: Nevermind, they are well more than one day.

    I opened the NY page, and it gave me a range of dates. It lasts until March 30th, apparently.

    Someone dun goof'd, I suppose. I missed the glaring "Starts March 11th", but there are different dates.

    I'm originally from CA, now going to school in NY.

    My home in CA is about 1.5 hours away from San Francisco, but I'm currently a 3.5-hour drive away from New York City.

    Meh, I think I'll just pre-order it and pick it up on the launch date.

    My birthday's this month so I guess I can treat myself to a birthday present [​IMG]

    Why can it never be New Orleans instead of New York? Sucks so much.

    I live like 30-60 minutes away from NYC. Since I have school five days a week, and work on the weekends, I really can't go. However, my brother is coming back from college for Spring Break this week, so I'm trying to force him to go with me (My mom said I could miss school, because I haven't missed many days this year).

    Right now, he doesn't seem to want to go at all, but I'll make him go. If not, I'll try to get a friend to skip school with me.

    I really need to play one...
    ______________________________________________

    I don't understand why they can't just ship all the demo ones from Europe so we could play them in Gamestops here...

    Edit:

    I'm just hoping it won't be packed... if you think about it. There are only four of these pods in the entire country... All of them will probably be swamped.

    I live 1 hour away from San Fran, but I don't really feel like driving there just to play a 3DS (and the line will probably be long too). Plus there are too many hobos in the city.

    Wow....I live in NYC about 10 minutes away from the Nintendo World Store......
    Gotta go to see this. I actually went there las week on Tuesday to see if there was any 3DS on display just in case, but there were none.....
    It's a good thing it's gonna last for several days, I'm sure it's gonna get real crowded trough the weekend................[​IMG]

    i went to bestbuy today and hey had a demo there. so i quickly tried it, then i let my son try it out and he didn't last a minute before running to the Kinect. pretty shocking. i asked him to give it another try and he said he didn't like the 3d. [​IMG]

    i'm kinda glad, cause i aint buying it.

    edit: this was in emeryville ca btw.

    Well just because it makes a noise doesn't mean it's less sturdy. If the US version is more sturdy, then I'm fine.
    *Has 3 DS lites, all with a broken hinge*
