Thousands of fans, some of whom had camped for several days, and have drank as much water as physically possible, urinated outside in New York and Hollywood, in order to take part in this distasteful act.
The first participant, "Triforce" Johnson, had been urinating outside the New York shop for more than a week, a result of drinking 40 gallons of water.
Nintendo spokesman Yasuhiro Minagawa, who has had nearly 4,000,000 Wiis in North America, will be available for questioning on the Japan launch date (Dec. 2), after not being able to turn up for the US release.
"I'm sorry I couldn't turn up at the event, I was busy with a Wii," said the Spokesman.
The UK has their Wiis on 8 December.
