    From 10th November 2006 to the 13th January 2007 Nintendo will be running a two month sampling campaign of the Nintendo Wii.

    The tour will take place across 60 different locations in the UK and Ireland and will give the public the chance to play and learn about the console.

    Nintendo's want to get the Wiimote into the hands of 1 million people prior to the December launch.

    The two month tour will merge into a six month campaign aimed at ‘gaming for everyone’ and will take in the following locations:

    Thats a good point; only two of the above take place before the wii launch. I must say im a bit surprised; why would they need to do this to attract customers, when they keep saying about how the demand is larger than supply for wii? It would have made more sence to do this mid-year or closer to next christmas when there are far more wii's and most gamers have them.

    Well.....I have played the Wii today at Bluewater! It is fan-friggin-tastic!!!! They just had Wii Sports and Play going but as you will all be aware, it's enough! I played 'Cow-Racing' mainly 'cos it is ace!!!! The amount of women that flocked to have a go hints that Ninty may be onto a success here! I also noticed a few peopled offered a go and saying 'No, I'm no good at games'. 5 minutes later their whacking leather balls around stadiums, scoring perfect strikes and punching seven shades of poopy out of their mates 'mii'. Amazing!!!!
