    There is a news update in the stars catalog today, as i've just discovered.
    It looks like we're getting closer to getting good use out of our otherwise-pointless stars...

    You collect stars from nintendo-only games, they're a sort of points system, and nintendo has been hinting at putting wii points up in the stars catalog so you can exchange your stars for wii points. Presently the stars catalog is full of useless items like mobile phone wallpapers, ringtones and desktop backgrounds. Occasionally they will put a game up for sale but they're ridiculously expensive in terms of Stars as a currency.:frown2:

    actually this offer is only for europe, as star slips only come in european nintendo games.

    Everyone needs to take a breath, calm down and read the thread carefully. Your questions have already been answered but Ill repeat

    Nintendo has a program in Europe where you get "stars" with certain Nintendo products.
    You can trade stars for stuff like desktop images on the website
    It has been rumored that stars could be traded in for VC points at some date.
    This mistake on the Nintendo Europe website proves that they plan to do this in the future.

    Nintendo confirmed it was happening ages ago. There recently been a terms and conditions update so its even closer. Wonder what the exchange rate will be though. I've got around 7000 stars in waiting.

    I don't have a lot of hope for the conversion rate, but either way it's free points. Reckon most people could at least get a free NES game. Reading around I've found most people couldn't register slips from the same game...I have quite a lot of slips that I can't register because I already have got the game.

    If anyone wants to trade codes?
