Look at the floor plan on comic-con.org, wii won't be there because there is no table for nintendo besides the DS table
My bro is making me fly from Massachusetts to go to Comic Con. I cannot wait. They are having a Brisco County Jr panel. That is all I care about. I would like to finally play SF II on the 360 though...finally.
I remember last year, I saw a Street Fighter collection arcade cabinet with guys playing Alpha 2 and a Tekken 5 machine as well so hopefully it is there again. I also look forward to check out any new Street Fighter action figures they have putting out (The new set is Dee Jay, Zangief, Rolento, and two others) as I have much collecting some of them because they're so cool and accurate.
If I were still in San Diego I still would not go. Comic-Con is great until you go/volunteer and they keep sending you reminders year after year. I still seem to get it even tough I moved to Illinois last year. How did they find me? If you have not gone though you MUST go at some point. I recommend the back of the main floor for the comics, finding when a decent person will do signings at the entrance, the anime movie rooms (check schedule), the interview rooms ( they preview some good stuff), and final the costume parade. Best part is if you leave the convention for a break downtown is about 2 city blocks with the mall/theater/resturants. I think I will go next year after all.
I'm going to Comic-Con this year just to see everything (Wii and PS3 appearances likely) on Saturday. The panels are pretty much the highlight showing exclusive stuff on upcoming movies. If there's time I'll do the 360 SFII HF tourney.
