Just came back from Times Square.....
Do I need to say anything at all ?
What's up with these people? hey those girls would be a nice site while waiting in the cold . The main reason for the system is zelda, so if anyone has it how are the controls?
So many people o.O...
I knew I should have went, I have no idea why I didn't...
Now what I want to know is how many people actually left with console in hand.
Because with all this PS3 craziness lately, I almost forgot that when you go to the store, you can actually buy something.
OK, you want to know how many people got a Wii tonite ?
According to Reggie Fils-Aime there were around 3000 people in line up until 12AM, and he said , cool as ever, that there were more than 4000 system in the store tonite, and that EVERYBODY was going to get a Wii without any reason to panic.
The line was huge, it went around the whole block !!
But everybody was cool, and there were a lot of cute girls in line too!!!
And so, I fear it won't make it to the regular newscasts because there weren't any injured people.
Glad to see at least one company got it right. Cool pics.
lol. i wish there was a bunch of wii guys stampeding over ps3 bois, now that would make headlines!
ps: HOT CHICKS! WOOT!
Um, yeah, thanks to the lines and riots and fights over the PS3, news are full of PS3, and nobody even mentions Wii. Everywhere you turn, there's the PS3
If I were any more cynical, I would say Sony got a great marketing campaign going on, without spending a dime.
But, since I'm not a cynic (really, honestly), I'll just say that after the hubbub is over, all that people will actually remember will be: PS3.
(I can't wait for Wii.)
I wish I was there! Those lines seem like fun! Too bad we never have stuff like that over here.
Thanks for the great pics ARM73, and for the news.
I love nintendo
What about my homeland, dude? Unfortunately our official distributor sukcs Polish handheldmaniacs do not have any promotions, we buy Nintendo products with shitty instructions composed of one sheet of xerox
My local Wii launch will consist of a dozen people actually waiting to buy a Wii, and about three thousand pre-teen kiddies who would buy but can't afford it, milling around. I'll take a snow shovel and just shovel them aside.
Or just stage-walk to the counter over their heads.
In any case, December 8th, the Wii is mine!
In Japan, the Wii launch news is all related to how it DIDN`T end up a horrible mess like the PS3 one. They were even happily reporting on the lack of injuries and fights, commenting that the Nintendo fans seemed to be a much more peaceful bunch.
So, it`s not being ignored by *all* the news.
My country's news doesn't report peaceful news. :'(
I think there's at least one store here in Stockholm that will host a similiar thing. They usually do it for major launches, and it is completely adorable that they go around the queue offering free coffe and candy.
Nintendo Wii Launch Event in NYC at TimesSquare ToysRUs
Living in NYC myself, I was going to go, but I...didn't wanna? I picked it up this morning from target, no hassle. Whole thing took like 3 hours, but I got it. I wanna write up a first impressions thing soon.
Well in all honesty I went there just for the pre-launch party, and to feel the hipe....
But the line was really huge and it was going to take hours before I could even get inside!
That's why yesterday I did not get in line, I just went there and snapped tose pics(I have many more by the way).
And now I'm going down there again, with my pre-order in the right pocket and quitely get my Wii.
Hopefully there will be some games and extra controllers left !
If I can't get Zelda then all it's in vain!
