    go to this website........ they explain everything.......

    http://www.nintendo-europe.com/NOE/e...tars/index.jsp


    they are called stars. you collect them by registering products.

    250 Stars for each game registration, 500 Stars for a Nintendo GameCube or Game Boy Advance SP, or 400 Stars for a Game Boy Player!

    once you have enough, you can trade in your stars for ringtones....... wallpaper...... or whatever they offer.

    what im sayin is that maybe theyll start giving out Wii points like that...........
    They have rumoured it in the past and once even made wii points as an option, but all those who bought later received an e mail explaining they were testing things out and were not actually selling points and they could have a points refund or a X amount of points sent to the console electronically for the inconvenience.

    Licensing grants 3rd party developers to create and distribute games within Nintendo's guidelines and fees for a specific Nintendo system, however never to my knowledge has there been a game system license created to where the console owners gain royalty rights (or reprinting rights) to a title. I am sure that if Nintendo, Hudson, SNK, and SEGA could have predicted the re-release success with there previous consoles then maybe something of the sorts would have been included. That is of course developers was willing to also allow them such rights in the first place as a license can prevent games from ever showing up on a specific system as well (ahem, NES).

    To sum it up, if a license does not include this option to re-produce 3rd party titles for an emulated system then Nintendo just can't do so without the owner's consent. Also I seriously doubt any owner is just going to give away there classics simply to aid in promotion of Nintendo's new console without compensation.

    So then why would Nintendo risk paying out a ton in royalties to a 3rd party developers when it can provide it's own titles out of there vault for next to nothing? Nintendo might be willing to give these titles away if they thought not enough people would pay for them again as a means to promote there own console sales, but people simply don't give away stuff for free without some form of return.

    In turn I am glad Nintendo switched up the point system and allowed us to buy them instead, otherwise titles outside the Nintendo circle may not be available. Sure Nintendo games are cool, but there is others as well that I am glad to be able to have access to.

    It still would not hurt to adopt some of rewards system, however it may be too late for that.

    Console Owner gaining the rights to the reprinting rights?

    I am getting a little confused here, were you referring to the consumer or the corporation?

    After how many times Nintendo has had their shit jacked they deserve to steal something!!!

    Pertaining to the subject, I heard of this "earn your Wii points" thing too. But it was a rumor and was never officially announced by Nintendo. But that would make Nintendo lose money anyway. So I don't think it was even thought of at Nintendo.

    I was speaking about the licensing between the console creators (ie. Nintendo) and 3rd party developers producing games on a specific console (ie NES, SNES, N64). No license that I know of grants Nintendo the right to re-produce a 3rd party titles without that developers permission. Because of this, even the classic games of the past won't just be given to Nintendo for free (that Nintendo doesn't own directly) for them to distribute on the VC as a reward for game accomplishment without that developer getting some sort of compensation.

    If the point system was purely given for game play, external titles would cost Nintendo directly and we would be less likely to see them. We'd even be less likely to see Genesis or Neo-Geo for that matter as well.

    so i guess anything that has the smallest bit of having to do with motion sensing is out of the question because nintendo has done it. gotcha.. and PS3 and Wii were released around the same time so it could of been Nintendo copying Sony but expanding more on it.

    now why would nintendo give out free games, dosnt sound right does it?,
    I can understand N64 but NES and turbografx games? those aren't worth 5 bucks a game

    The Six-Axis was a feature which was developed later on and it was kind of rushed into a few games.

    Yepp.
