Wii kiosks GameStop-only?
As Sony plans a massive North American campaign of 15,000 PS3 kiosks, it may be much harder to try your hand at a Wii. The Dallas Morning News was at GameStop's annual sales conference this weekend, and there they learned that only GameStop stores will have Wii kiosks at launch. There are just 4,500 GameStop outlets worldwide. Furthermore, the Morning News notes that the company has yet to decide if and when it will take pre-orders for the Wii or PS3, contrary to speculation. Time is running out for a decision - both consoles launch in mid-November.
