    At GameStop, do you have to pay to play on Wiis set up there for customers to try? I heard that $5 gets you 2 hrs, is this true? I want a Wii but have never played one :frown2:

    You don't have to pay, but you have to give them your state ID so if you run away with the wii-mote they know who you are.

    Gamestop pulls in billions of dollars a year to run hole in a wall shops. They let you demo games for free, and offer free info. Such as how to avoid the red ring of doom.

    Some gamestops have new stations were the wii remote and nunchuck are attached to the unit and run the power off that cord. So no I.D. needed or dead batteries.

    As Clarke said, the ones around here now have the Wiimote and Nunchuk teathered to the system by non-removable power cords.

    Previously I had to give them my drivers license to check out a wiimote, but never any money.

    Yea the only ones I've seen have tethered controllers.

    Now I would just like to see Wal-Mart, Target, BestBuy, etc get those tethered controllers so I can check out new games (other then mario) when they come out. Thats typically how I buy new games.

    To play the Wii at Gamestop is 100% free. If they are claiming to charge you money to play then that is the employee trying to make an extra buck off of you. Every Wii demo stand should have the Wiimote and Nunchuk tied into the stand so you can only stand about 2-3 feet away from the demo. Also Wal-Mart, Target, and Bust Buy already have the demo stands but, of course, they are only demoing Mario Galaxy because that will be the Wii holiday seller.

    Here is a thought, how awesome would it be that if you were to collect all 120 stars within SMG and maybe max out the coin score on all the stages you would unlock a 2-5 min demo of Smash Bros Brawl. It just came to me when I was playing SMG. I know that it is highly unlikely that it will happen.

    It is when the 360 crashes. You will get three red lights around the power button that will flash. Thus a system crash. Here is an example:

    If I remember correctly each light represents an error. I can't remember exactly what they represent, but once you get all three then all you have is a 360 paperweight. There are ways out there to recover from the red ring, but they are only temporary fixes.
