    Dissapointed with Wii points system

    before the Wii was released I think I read somewhere that wii points would be based on goals acomplished in games, like passing a level in a game would give you a certain amount of points and you could then use those points to download games for the virtual consol.

    I'm dissapointed to see you actually have to pay for wii points. I can't really see myself going out and buying a wii points card so I can download old games. there's a lot of old games that I love but I think it would of been way better to get rewarded points from playing wii games instead of paying for them.

    I still would like to download Mario 64, Waverace 64, and Paper Mario lol I might end up giving in later on.

    was it always planned that you had to pay for wii points?

    Surely think about profit and such, it is a corporation that wants to make money and the virtual console would of made Nintendo $30mill+ by now.

    I doubt they would give away some classic games like you wanted.

    But it's ok for PS3 to copy Nintendo, a lot.

    Then when we make a game that has a planet thats round we get blamed for copying off rachet and clank...

    Yes, they've managed to make a lot of it however they probably didn't think people would be willing to buy as often and as many points as we have.

    Yes it would have been cool to have a point earning system however the system has shifted direction however if they'd stayed to the original thought the only titles we'd probably see for the VC are just classic Nintendo titles. Games made by companies other than Nintendo probably would not be available not to mention the systems such as SEGA, TG16, and Neo-Geo I doubt would have ever been considered. At least, not unless SEGA titles add SEGA points to SEGA titles as SEGA mind you, wants to get paid too. The same can be said for the other developer titles we have available.

    Playing royalist for the games might not of been a problem with a majority as surely they are licensed and such by Nintendo for its consoles?

    I think Nintendo didnt expect the wii to be as big as it has been as a whole, look at the shortages occurring and the wii's soaring popularity.

    ive heard that Nintendo is doing this thing where you can trade in stuff youve registered for star points. i think they are doing that in the UK, but im not sure.

    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...........



    OHAI! I'm just an old dinosaur from 2006 seeing who's here

    The name is. . . Hugo
