    apparently nintendo sent an email to members confirming wii points for stars

Thatís the kind of marketing initiative we like, Ninty!

    It shows...

    In many areas in Europe, the prices on things are very high. Finland and GB are two examples. After conversion, we over on the European side of the pond are paying ridiculous amounts of money for games, etc. For example, Super Mario Galaxy is 55 euros at this one Finnish site I checked. That's around $88!! At amazon.co.uk it's 43 pounds, which is around $80. At amazon.com right now, you can get SMG for $50.

    The euro doesn't go a long way here in Finland and many people here are wondering what is going on. The people I have talked to say prices on everything from entertainment to food, skyrocketed since the change from the Finnish mark to the euro.

    As an American, I can easily admit that I took prices (and a lot of other things) for granted back in the States. I do miss it, sometimes.


    On topic:

    Do we have to register the games and products we buy in order to get these Star points? Is it any game or just Nintendo-specific games? This is the first time I've even heard of this.
    I kick ass for the Lord!

    Well i recieved the email above. in fact if you didnt agree to the new terms & conditions a few months ago, then your account on Ninty-Euro probably doesnt even exist anymore- may want to check that. And stars are recieved only in NINTENDO games, not 3rd party, also consoles recieve points, signing onto the website every day, creating a membership and, rarely, you may get a few for filling in a survey.

    I agree with rip-off britain too. I've been to the states a few times, and was amazed once when i picked up 'Yosh Touch and Go' for DS (several years ago now) for the equivalent of £17 in a SHOP. UK websites such as play.com were charging £25 at the time. The only thing i will mention is that UK has 17.5% VAT tax, US has an average, i believe, of about 8% though thats an uncertain memory and i think its differant by state. Their tax isnt included when you see the price on the shelves. But even then, UK is still more expensive.

    just curious, in the US, in the area that i live in, the average Net income per year is roughly $51,000. What is the average Net income for your area? is it enough to make the ratio that we pay for game\gas\etc the roughly the same?

    I See this in the US in ways such as houseing, My area houses range upwards of $600,000 for a 2 bedroom. Where as in a different part of the US a 2 Bedroom runs around $150,000. Of coarse, their local income is less then my area, and they might have different heating\cooling costs. in the end they balance out to roughly the same ratio of income vs costs.
