    I really hope it does ,
    Cant see it myself though
    It is happening and it will bring in extra revenue for nintendo.

    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.

    Who knows. Nintendo have been saying that wii points will appear in the stars catalogue 'soon' for the past 6 months. However, this does seem like the most likely time for such an update to come.

    If this doesn't come, then im hoping for at least some good news such as new release dates for games such as Battalion Wars 2, Wii Fit etc.

    Also, the update should come TODAY not tomorrow i.e- in the next 6 hours and 15 mins.
