SXSW 2011: Initial Thoughts?

The Nintendo 3DS is still a few weeks away from release here in North America (March 27, to be exact), but that doesn’t mean you can’t play with it right now. Nintendo has begun a series of demo events in cities around the country where you can, in their own words, “be one of the first to experience the Nintendo 3DS system before launch day.” What cities are involved?

Four cities get the 3DS demo, and they are:

New York at Grand Central Terminal

Chicago at the Citigroup Center

Los Angeles at Third Street Promenade

San Francisco at Pier 39

And don’t worry: there are similar events in Canada, too.

Nintendo also says that 3DS units will be at select retailers in the weeks leading up to the launch date, so don’t freak out if you don’t live in or near one of those aforementioned cities.

In other 3D news, last night I was on After Dark Radio with Bryan Alvarez (of Figure 4 Weekly fame), and we discussed all sorts of fun tech topics including, but not limited to, 3D. So if you have a spare moment!
