Just returned back from braving the chilly elements tonight in downtown Melbourne for the launch of the Nintendo 3DS and a turnout it was. Great night with free Red Bulls and other soft drinks, party pies and muffins so top marks for the catering effort. The staff were handing out 3DS lanyards with numbers on them for your space in the queue while upstairs in the Nintendo Experience there was heaps of multiplaying, Mii’s being made on the 3DS and printed out and food everywhere you looked. Quite a few news crews were there to interview gamers and gather some footage. There was in excess of 100 people downstairs, upstairs and milling out on the street. I managed to grab a copy of Ridge Racer to go along with my Streetfighter IV when I pick mine up in about 7 hours time. Anyways, enough from me, pics below and thanks to my mate Hendy for tagging along with me!! 🙂
