Nintendo unveils 'DS Centres' for the UK

Shoppers able to download demos of games straight to their own consoles

Nintendo UK has unveiled a series of over 30 'DS Centres' to be housed in a variety of retail outlets across the country, in which gamers will be able to try out new games and download demos to their own consoles.

The Centres can be found in a number of different retail chains, including GAME, Argos, HMV, Zavvi, Toys R Us, Woolworths and ASDA, with the majority falling in specialist retailers in London and the South East.

Titles available to demo at launch include a number of existing best-selling titles, such as Big Brain Academy, New Super Mario Bros and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, with others available to download as demos.

Downloaded content will remain on the user's own DS while on sleep mode, but will disappear if the power is fully switched off. More DS Centres and demo titles will be available over time.
