    Last night as many game retailers were getting ready to open their doors to the waiting lines, Times Square was getting ready to throw the main Wii launch event.

    The 'Toys R Us' store in Times Square, NY was the venue with a reported 5,000 Wii units on hand to satisfy the crouds.

    Reggie was there too, on hand to get the crowd going and sign the odd console here and there.

    Here is an interview taken with Reggie shortly after the event:

    Here's some images from the event in store.

    The big stack of consoles and the shopping baskets full of Zelda... that pretty much kills me.
