Hi. Havnt been on here for a while, and what im about to tell you is actually the reason im on here.
This morning the official nintendo of europe website (www.nintendo-europe.com) announced that the forums on the website have been closed permanently. (they had been temporarily shut for the last couple of months due to 'security') Currently the website is under construction. This happens quite a lot. Usually we have a long paragraph about apologies, and coming back soon etc. However now we have just one sentence:
"The Community has been closed. For more information, click here."
"clicking here" simply refreshes the page. The fact that the message is differant suggests that the update will be differant (rather than some technical thing behind the scenes). Personally i am hoping for a way to convert stars to wii points. (I dont know if US/Japan have this- when we europeans buy a game/console we get stars, and we can buy things in a catalogue- usually only wallpapers, mobile ringtones etc. occasionally there are games for sale which sell out in an hour or two). They have already said that we will be able to purchase wii points 'in the near future', several months ago.
This is of course hopeful guessing. If US and Japan do not have stars then it is unlikely that this will be our 'big surprise'. Though i will be checking the Nintendo-Europe website frequently today and tomorrow for any updates.
Sorry thats such a long message lol.
