Have a playable Nintendo DS available at the tour and I'd drive the 150 miles neccesary to get to a "nearby college campus" off that list.

The article didn't specify certain things such as whether or not the tour will be open to the public, just college students, or just students attending that college. Is there an admission fee? If it opens at 10 or 11, when does it close and what are your chances of being able to play that special game you've been waiting for with all the people that will be there?
Nintendo had better have something amazing planned for next generation if it plans to be a serious competitor.
