They have to no value to Nintendo, If they gve away 5 dollar coupons for Nintendo Products. Then they would be losing a lot of Money. But these points cost next to nothing to make and there selling games that are already invented. Giving away Wii Points wouldn't decrease profits enough to make them not give away Wii Point. The reason they Won't is because Nothing in life is free lolz. No they just won't becuase of unknown reasons.

Then there's the shop channel, but that's for their benefit. None of these blow my socks off, but don't imply that Nintendo has left us high and dry.

    It certainly costs much less than $5 for Nintendo to provide these games over WiiConnect, but it's still a $70,000,000+ value that might have become real cash during the holiday season. It also sets precedent. Would they do this every Christmas? Other holidays? Launch anniversary? People would wait for more freebies, it's just awful business and I will be shocked if any VC game is offered for free, ever.

    ok by no means are my intentions to argue over a gaming system but internet is 500 points for browser...and the photo is an update why should that cost money????? but i hear you its all good i would just like to see a lil more then this...im used to the 360 so i gotta get used to it...i still love it though

    I've always hoped that they'd give us at least 500 points, but knowing Nintendo, they won't. >.>

    200 million sold? They haven't sold 200 million Wii's. Where did you get your statistics?

    Why does everyone think Nintendo is obligated to give us stuff for free? I've never seen Xbox 360 players asking for free Microsoft points.
    who would want Microsoft points?!? even if they were free

    I don't think Nintendo are being stingy for not giving us stuff for free, but they are still a very stingy (and stubborn) company. For example:

    -They charge quite high prices on VC games compared to the actual cost of emulating them (and they can often work out much cheaper on some retro collections).

    -They offer a Star Points to Wii Points exchange scheme in Europe at a ridiculously steep exchange rate of 4 SP= 1 WP.

    -They have a reputation for being uncooperative with third party developers.

    -They refuse to give us more memory space.

    I'd be quite happy to have some Microsoft points. If you happen to come across some you don't want, feel free to send them to me.



    I never add friend codes.
