    Do you mean points to download Virtual console games? If so they need to be purchased either online using a credit card, or you can purchase then from stores (like mobile phone top-up cards)

    yeah he means those points, but is asking something about them...

    in the UK you can use your star points (points you gather by registering your nintendo purachases online) and you can use them to 'buy' things from nintendo, soon we can use these star points to 'buy' VC points

    only thing is, you cant do it yet, and i dont know if there is a set date for it to happen either...

    In the states we just got crap for registering games. I've got magazines and things I don't need. Be nice to get VC points.

    Regardless, even after linking your profile as of now, I havn't seen any points. It does however register your games you download automatically (for the states atleast). Guess you have to buy the wii points with a card until then.

    i will save them then and wait for nintendo to sort the star point thing out.
    has nintendo said this or is it an internet rumour?

    Well if you can connect your Wiishop account [Basically your Wii] to the Points system something will happen be assured. I got 5,125 points exactly! so I can't wait lol

    Yeah
    They ask you for your E-Mail and password [The password you used for Nintendo Europe] so it should be connected. They asked me ages ago so I forgot how they worded it...

    rumour has it that if your accounts are connected you will get 1 Wii point for 2 Nintendo stars............. although another rumour says it's more likely to be 1 Wii point for every 4 stars! you decide!
