    Nintendo plans on having E3-quality game demos available at local Best Buys.

    Here's a snippit from Best Buy's website...

    Check the following link to see if it's coming to a Best Buy near you.
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Games-Promotions/Wii U First to Play/pcmcat303600050002.c?id=pcmcat303600050002&DCMP=rdr107939

    It's a good plan for Nintendo to help keep themselves relevant during the PS4 and XBOne events.

    I swear I had read this somewhere before and as I am not likely to grace game news sites I had to have been here. Still I can not find an immediately obvious thread on the matter so I will leave it up for the time being.

    More on topic an interesting move and one that could do OK for them. I wonder if they will extend such a thing to other parts of the world.

    Personally can't wait! Defiantly going myself, and I'm really excited to see what Ninty has to show this year

    Honestly, I think Best Buy needs more help staying relevant than Nintendo.

    Nintendo announced it (Reggie) in the last Nintendo Direct. You probably read some news article about that back then.

    I couldn't care less. Best Buy US announced back in October they are going back to electrics, televisions and stereo equipment only by mid 2015. Video games and videos will no longer be sold. So this move with Nintendo is very strange.

    Cool, there's one near me that's doing this. Hopefully The games they have will be interesting enough.

    Sadly none of the Best Buys close to me. But then I would probably be working both times anyways.

    The ones in California are stupid. I've never even heard of those locations except for one.
