Nintendo has a novel way of getting gamers (who do not already own a Wii U) excited about the games it will be showcasing at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles next month. At participating Best Buy stores consumers will be able to get hands-on time with pretty much the same game demos as the press gets access to from the E3 show floor. The announcement was made by Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime today during a Nintendo Direct presentation.
"This year, we're making E3 for the people, and we want to make sure you get the chance to try our games as well," said Fils-Aime.
While Nintendo has not revealed what games will be available, it did say that they would be playable at more than 100 Best Buy stores throughout the U.S. and Canada during E3 (June 11-13). Nintendo promises to announce the games to be playable at Best Buy and the 100 store locations soon.
While this is a smart move on Nintendo's part for those who do not already own a Wii U it would be a good idea if the platform holder also made these playable demos of unreleased games available to those who already own its home console. Hopefully that will happen in addition to this partnership with Best Buy...
