    Bad idea. For Nintendo, at least. For consumers it sounds great. So, I mean, it is a great idea, but I don't think it would help Nintendo in the long run. Maybe it would, but I can't see it.

    Not legal

    Those virtual console games cost money to make. And the sega and turbografx ones cost money to buy also. If you could get points from playing games, the virtual console titles would be free. So it will never happen, since it would be illegal

    It wouldn't be illegal, it would mean Nintendo is footing the bill (paying for it), which is why I don't think it would work for Nintendo.

    Good point... On the other side, here is something similar :Nintendo said that later on, points you earned on the nintendo website, could be traded in for wii points. And since you get 250 for each nintendo game, 500 or so for a console, and 5 for each day you visit the site, a loyal nintendo fan can score a LOT of wii points.

    Depending on where you live, that is. We have no such system. Hell, we don't even have a Nintendo website. All we have is a domain name which mirrors the Aussie Nintendo website...
    oh, but I'm not bitter.

    Haha, well I'm dutch, and we have a pretty big Nintendo site of our own. Alright, for most of the screenshots and stuff. For the real deal we get redirected to Nintendo.com, but hey, I've got stars! When I fired up the ol' wii wifi system, they asked me if i wanted to link my wii with my club nintendo account. Haven't noticed much difference since that day, I must add

    Yeah, you can't use stars to buy wii points yet. Nintendo have said that you will be able to in future, though.

    As for the first post, Gamer Points, which you earn by completing objectives in a game, are separate to the XBLA currency. Really, though, why on earth would nintendo want to pay people to complete games? I suppose maybe if it was something like 15 games = 1 VC purchase.,,

    I think I've only completed 3 or 4 games in my life, though.

    EDIT: Oh, and by linking your Nintendo VIP account you can view VC purchases on the nintendo website and potentially earn rewards.

    It would be cool if when you beat games/get certain things you get points for buying things for your Miis. Such as if you are a pro in Boxing you can get boxing gloves. Nintendo would loose too much money if they gave away VC Games.
