    Why are there SO many in Birmingham, and then other major cities don't have an event at all? [​IMG]

    I might go to the one in Reading, or possibly Birmingham. Not sure I can be arsed to travel through London to play it. Though I did drive almost 800 miles to and back from the show in Paris! [​IMG]

    I'd go to the one in Southampton too, but I'll already have my Wii before then! [​IMG]

    Hmm, looks like they've moved up and literally moved the location of the Wii Tour in my hometown. Oh well, at least I'll get to try it out before launch now! [​IMG]

    Well that's no good to me. I don't live in any of those cities or even have the motivation to travel to one of the cities to actually play it. I suppose I'll have to wait for a demo machine to be installed at my local GAME/Gamestation.

    I went to the one at Buchanen Galleries Glasgow today. They demo'd Wii Sports, Wii Play and Zelda.

    a Buddy had a shot at Wii Bowling and we played a Vs match of Wii tennis. It was all good. Had a really great rally.

    The Wii-Remote looks tiny and feels just right. These last three weeks are gonna drag...

    I'm thinking of freezing myself (its the only way)
