It is happening and it will bring in extra revenue for nintendo.Originally Posted by el-zilcho
Currently Stars can only be traded in for 'virtual products' or the occasional game - which is always sold out! The cost incurred here for Nintendo is maintaining up to date virtual downloads and also making and sending out an actual game.
When Nintendo start the stars for wii Points, it is highly likely that the stars cat. will be reduced significantly. Nintendo will focus on stars for wii points as this will encourage an increased use of the virtual console.
Before you all go, but what about the extra money?
Well stars are only availale from registering Nintendo games (e.g. mario/zelda/metroid not fifa etc) - so in theory you have to pay £39.99 to get your stars and how much are those stars worth in wii points?.. well we don't know yet, but i can't imagine it's very much.
hence you need to buy more nintendo games to be able to get your 'free' VC game.
makes sense? well maybe a little.
