    Hey I live in U.S and periodically we get free stuff from Nintendo if we bought products. But this only happends like once a year. Example: Free trail of Nintnedo Power.

    It doesnt actually say that the wii points for stars is happening , it just hints at the fact that its possible .

    Hope it does though !

    Yeah...We have it good in the US.

    They're paying like..35 pounds for a stupid wii game. Let alone the late release dates. HAHAH

    I'm not jealous in the slightest. :p

    And didn't we know about this like...3 months ago?

    and yeah we get a bunch of points everytime we get a nintendo published game/product, also if we buy VC games we also get these points.

    Our gas prices hurt us a lot more though, as the public transportations systems are much better in the UK (and no wonder, look at how compact it is...)

    lol - for starters I live in the UK, where the currency is the Great British Pound, not the Euro.

    I love how the majority of members here think they are older than everyone else, but you see there is quite a high percentage of us here who left our teen years behind many many years ago and are now happily settled on our own with our significant other. So in response to your question, no they don't - would be quite a funny thought if they did.

    The reason the UK hasn't joined the Euro - it will highlight just how expensive this country is!!

    I hope they dont make 100 star points = 1 wii point or something daft like that! There is not really anything else to use your Star points on unless you really want a mario wallpaper on your mobile phone

    Es

    P.S. - 1 litre of petrol (gas) is about $2.25 in the uk - which is about $9.50 a gallon (maths was never my strong point)

    Yeah videogames are pretty expensive in the U.K., my cousin in england is a gamer but he can't afford that many games.

    Well good for u U.K. ppl, get some stuff back.

    dude the conversion rate isnt much but nintendo just jacks the prices up. dont pull that "i had to earn my money " crap. money is money, and europeans dont like being overcharged, just like us.
    sincerely,
    fellow american


    EDIT: oh snap i didnt know the UK didnt use euros. well actually i did because they use pounds right? anyway whatever, my argument still stands.
