Ah the fuckers none in Belfast.

Dublin could be good day trip but it is the week of my formal... balls.

Us Irish get the Wii before the Brits, feels so good getting stuff before the English.

They have missed some of the most loved shopping areas/cities in the country. Retards.

Not impressed and Wales should not be ignored either. More large urban areas missed out. Oops.

It won't be near me. Smilie

And for crying out loud Dublin and Wii sitting in a tree...

Woooooooo!!!

In Nintendo's map of the UK Scotland ends at Glasgow, again Smilie

No Newcastle. Hell, even the smaller Pokemon Tour managed to stop there a few days ago.

Am I the only staff memeber doomed to not play the Wii before it comes out? =[

Well, Karn will get to play it again as its stopping at Churchill Mall in Brighton, I might go across the River Severn to Bristol for some hands on time, Adam and Mike will get to play it in Manchester...so most the staff are ok. So yeah, it looks that way Phil Smilie

Nice set of venues, and general coverage of the UK. Kudos to Nintendo Smilie

Trying to think of a witty signature after 'Hacker-gate'...

Cribbs Causeway? I don't think anything could persuade me to go there.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

Hmm, I don't think this is the complete set of Wii UK tour dates, apparently there are a few more to be added into that list as we get nearer to launch.

I am pretty sure that i might be able to get down to Dublin to play it on the 11th of November.

Have to see if Yoshidude/Thundercats is up for it.

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Dude yuor totally awesome. And i won't be killing you anytime soon.

I love how Manchester is the city that it's being displayed in for launch rather than somewhere like London. Smilie Hopefully they keep it on late on the launch day and have it going on all the time as people wait. Chuck us prizes, too!

I'll be there on at least two of the Manchester days, the uni one and the one on launch day that I hope will continue right up until midnight when shops are open for the launch (dreaming, but it'd be class). I may also go to another day if one of my friends can't make it to either of the two I'm going to.

Pff... Stop whining... I went t Northampton just to play Twilight Princess last year. Trains are fun ^^

Thankfully I should be able to go to the one that's just in London this time... Not sure why it's at the Good Food Show though.


Oh God, they better put something other than cooking games on Smilie

Since when was Dublin in the UK? Smilie

Anyway, Dublin's only a few hours north of County Wicklow so I'll be sure to take the DART up. Smilie

No Liverpool...I wonder why...its not as if the city is full of raging yobbos and the like. No, really. Smilie

Who said Dublin is in the UK who said it? I will personally kick that guy in the head.

Nothing annoys me more than people who think ireland is in Britain

5 times in Birmingham! Shhhhhhhesh!
