Nintendo Mimics Apple with Retail Store
Nintendo on Thursday announced plans to open a retail outlet in Manhattan this spring, following in the footsteps of companies like Apple and Sony. According to Nintendo, the store will be the first one to open, and will have two floors. It is replacing the Pokemon Center in Rockefeller Center.
Like storefronts from Sony and Apple, the Nintendo World Store will showcase all of Nintendo's hardware, as well as provide visitors previews of unreleased games for its consoles. In recent months, the gaming wars have heated up once again with Sony's release of the PSP, and the expected debut of next-generation consoles from all major manufacturers at E3 this May.
