    So yesterday me and a couple of my friends went to a local EB games store for no apparent reason, we just felt like going there. Then i remembered when i was on this site people were talking about playing the Wii in Gamestop and other stores like that. So i thought OMG I MIGHT BE ABLE TO PLAY THE WII! so we finally arrive and we walk in and look around, and the first thing i looked for was anything Wii. I found it....the playable demo Wii in all its glory sitting there (closest ive ever been to a Wii) i found myself sitting their staring at it.....but then i realized....the damn thing wasnt set-up :wtf: i heard a parent ask the workers at the counter, and they said "o yeah came in two days ago...we havent set it up yet though" so i got all hyped up finally saw the Wii up close.....but the damn thing wasnt working yet.....

    so theres my sad but true almost Wii experience :shocked: :sick: hope you injoyed it :wink:

    kinda the same for me, but they had it set up and i asked if i could play it because you have to get the controller at the front desk. and then i found out i couldnt because i dont have an ID to give them, i was about to just say F*(& you

    Same thing here except mine was at Target.
    No controller, tv wasn't on, Wii wasn't plugged in.
    Bit at least i got to see the pretty thing.
    IT looks very nice if you ask me.

    At least you got to look at one in person. I called at least 8 gamestops/ebgames and they all said the same thing: at least 1-2 weeks until they even get it shipped to them.. By then we'll all have our own wii and nobody will care about the kiosk!

    At least your EB Games/Gamestops told you when they would get it in. The employees at mine are rude bastards. Only one store was the least bit nice and he said they should have it tomorrow. Don't know how certain that is, but I hope i can try it tomorrow!

    I'm not sure if the actual gamestop/eb employees can actually open it up. The dude at my local shop made it sound like an actual Nintendo rep has the key to open the kiosk up. Might have been a lie, but I wouldn't be surprised with all the psychos out and around nowadays.

    When I played at EB, you had to give them colateral for the controller, and the system and TV appeared dead until they pressed the power button on the controller.
