    [Official news from a UK Nintendo newsletter]

    If you have a Nintendo VIP 24:7 account on the European Nintendo site then you can get free VC games!

    Wii points are being added to the Star Catalogue so you can buy them

    For americans who wouldent understand, Some european games come with VIP codes, you can enter these on the Nintendo VIP site and they give you Star points, you can use these points for buying wallpapers etc

    But Nintendo are letting Wiipoints and Star points cross over. So if you have Star points on your Nintendo Europe account you might get to order yourself some VC games!

    I currently have 1810 so can get Mario tommorow hopefully


    [UNCONFIRMED : When setting up the Wii in the UK or Europe, You will be asked for your VIP membership details so they can cross over]

    i have like 4500 stars! Are the points limited- i.e first 50 people etc, or unlimited? Also, is it one star per one point or otherwise? God, i was hoping they would do this- they never have any good stuff for sale!!!

    ok i set up my wii earlier i have 100's of star points.

    I associated my vip account with the shop channel(you'll understand what i mean when you see it).


    But the star points did NOT transfer over to wii points. Unless i did something wrong, (and it's hard to see how i could have) then this facility, is yet to kick in.

    I notice the nintendo site is currently offline being upgraded perhaps???

    Link your account
    By linking your Wii Shop Channel account to your online Nintendo membership, you will be able to enjoy additional benefits in the near future. Not only will you then be able to purchase Wii Points in the Stars Catalogue, you will also get Stars for your Virtual Console purchases upon completing a small survey.


    Straight from the horses mouth!

    I agree, it annoys me how certain regions get certain things. It also balances out I guess, because we'll get things they won't and vice versa.

    I have a ton of unregistered codes from a bunch of games, so if this gets up and running, I'll definitely be using them.

    Yeah, but you get games and consoles before us (hell, you usually get them before their country of origin) and you also dominate the movie industry etc so I don't really think you can complain.

    No Japan usually gets all the games before us, everytime I look at the release date for a game I'm interested in, it always show Japan having it first.

    I've just noticed in my stars section on the Nintendo site, its has products registered to date and all the stuff I've registered and site visits etc. But now there is a also a heading Products I've downloaded to date.
    In it is the two games I've download so far from the Virtual Console, and there's also a click here button which opens a small window saying you will soon be able to claim stars from this purchase.
