So, I hope there weren't that many people able to go to this thing... because Nintendo and Best Buy has significantly cut their list of locations. To make matters worse, each Best Buy will only have one Demo Station per store... which has the four demos on it. Since you'll be waiting most of your time, if not the entire time (as no time limit has been announced for the stations)... there will be some kind of activities and swag.

They've apparently added more or still are using some others from the original list. Do NOT take the below list as CANON.

JUST CLICK THIS LINK ALREADY!!! --->>> HERE

Alabama - Hoover, Huntsville

Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
 
I get why they picked those 4 since those are their summer and early fall games(assuming WWHD is in that window) and they're trying to get sales now and not a year from now with this. However, for the people who follow everything like us, quick demos of games that are almost out aren't terribly exciting.

Your point is probably definitely their logic. But that's exactly my problem with this. If this is the case, why limit it so much? Why not have the demos the whole week of E3?

It's only a 30 minute drive from my parents' house (which is where I'll be) to the Best Buy in Arlington, TX, but I just have so much stuff going on that Saturday, and that four hour time period is way too short considering my other plans. Really depends on what games they'll have whether I'll make the effort to go or not.

@Anand Saturday! In theory I could go tomorrow, since I don't work, but I imagine you do, and I hate doing stuff in the middle of the week anyway. Although for this, I might make an exception.

When do you want to go?!

Ah, was hoping for the Monroeville mall. Oh well.

@TheBigG753

Would make a lot more sense than Slum-tury 3 Mall.

@Zero
Hmm... how long is it there for? I think that I might actually give myself the day off tomorrow, so that's a possibility. But my nephews are over, and they would probably skin me when I got back...

Crazy idea: Tomorrow morning? Store opening?! It's summer vacation, but I think we could beat the rush of kids by going at sunrise. Plus, we'd be imposing enough to keep them at bay and play for hours.

@Anand The select games will be playable on June 12 from 4-8 pm local time, and June 15 from 1-5 pm local time.

DON'T YOU READ ANYTHING?!

@Abdooooo

Indeed. It seems to be a mix of both lists? Check officially in the link in the OP!
