Nintendo opening Nintendo World Store in NYC


Guess what? Those rumors about Nintendo opening up a flagship store in Manhattan—rumors that were based almost entirely on a single job listing somebody dug up—turned out to be true. They've confirmed plans to follow the lead of Apple and Sony (and hopefully not Gateway) and open the very first Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center sometime this spring, just a few blocks away from the SonyStyle flagship store at Madison and 55th (which means that Sony fanboys and Nintendo fanboys might be forced to interact with each other in the real world rather than in their preferred field of battle, Internet message boards).
