I totally forgot to upload these when I took a trip to New York this August... but better late then never!

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about or haven't been there, Nintendo World is a store dedicated to Nintendo our in New York. In it they have new games, some toys, clothes, you name it. Something particularly interesting is that they have a mini museum of sorts there going over Nintendo's history and previous systems. Shockingly, the Virtual Boy has it's own case there! Not only that, they have a mint system displayed with just about all the American released games!

I have to admit, I took the pictures rather hastily as I was drooling from being at such a place... so they aren't the best... didn't even think to turn the camera vertical so you can see the whole case in one shot. X(

Anyway, here they are for those who haven't been to Nintendo World!

PS
I just noticed the files start with WP... raise your hand if you also immediately think World Parameters! ;)

*EDIT
Totally uploaded giant 4 meg versions the first time... sorry about that!

That's great, is it right in NYC? I go down from time to time to see my brother who lives there...maybe next time I'll go through the exhibits. I could just Google the address, but I'd rather hear it from you :p

The next time you're there, check out that Video Game Exchange NY store- they have a full sized VB store display, which is cool to actually see in person.

Yup! Right in NYC! Address is: 10 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10020. You should definitely check it out! It's pretty neat.

Oh! I certainly do need to check that Video Game Exchange place! Sounds really awesome!

Wow what a goon, I was right there not long ago- and I vaguely remember seeing a Nintendo store or something but thought "bah, they probably just sell Wii's there". Well, next time I'll check it out. You know how if people want to brag about their kids, they'll "accidentally" drop a photo in front of someone as a conversation starter? Maybe I'll bring my US Jack Bros and Virtual Fishing, then right as a crowd approaches, woops! They fall out of my wallet and I can brag about my collection :)

Better Yet bring a flashboy too w VR Racing already loaded on. unless you think that they won't be playing the games in that case just bring Bound High. and Faceball VB.

I betchya someone at Nintendo is juuuuust cheeky enough to put a proto of Zero Racers or Dragon Hopper in that Display VB, too, just to *know* that it's there, taunting us all... ;)

Great display! Thanks for nabbing pictures for us!
