The Nintendo Website has been relaunched and is giving away free Nintendo products & Wii Points in exchange for Nintendo Stars (These normally come with nintendo products - 1000 stars for a console or 250 stars with a game). If you log on to the site you can earn 5 stars per day.

Now Wii points are swoppable for Stars:
400 Stars = 100 Wii Points.

Not bad considering it is free.

link not working?
#2
Finally, they've apparently been promising this for ages...
Cheers foor the tip. Maybe I can get some sort of use out of the virtual console again, or maybe I'll hang on for wii-ware.....

The link should be working, I just tried it again and it seems to be fine. The website seemed to be very slow earlier there must be a lot of traffic.

DCX here is a list of the Virtual Console Prices

Original Format Default Price
NES/Famicom 500 Wii Points
SNES/Super Famicom 800 points
N64 1,000 points
Sega Genesis/Mega Drive 800 points
TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine 600 points
Neo-Geo 900 points

the link dont work in the uk as the uk site is down for maintenance...
#5
Fortunately I redeemed my points earlier before it was posted on here! Seems to be taking a hell of a beating now.
#6
Thanks for the heads up - I was just checking if the site was back up last night as well.....
#7
All the other European sites are up - they have some nice goodies available in the shop - 12000 points for a Link and Epona statue anyone? I've only got about 5000 points unfortunately, so can only afford a Mario gamestand! :?
#8
When i click the link i get 404 not found.

If i go to nintendo main page i get "we'll be back later"

hmmm.....I've tried ctrl + F5 too.

4:1 is a bit mean. Didn't they try this in europe last year for a short while and they gave 2:1 (so 2000 stars got 1000 points).

Either way the stars were next to useless before so this is better but I bought a lot of Nintendo stuff over the years and my 7700 points wont even get me two N64 games.

Not sure how you vote this as it is no bargain but again, better than nothing.
#10
Copy-pasted from the other thread (because I can't be arsed re-wording, it's mostly relevant).

The Nintendo site is actually up, it's simply totally choked at the moment because;

a) We are now getting some REAL items!

b) NoE are rubbish.

c) NoE hate us.

I wish people would wait for half a second, instead of compulsively clicking on cold like an ADD sufferer without their meds. This is genuine, and compared to anything NoE has done in the past, WHITE HOT

Star-Wii point conversions are (almost) available, the links are dead at time of posting, presumably because everyone's trying to get them. But it could just be reasons b) and c) again :whistling:

I agree that 4:1 does seem a bit tight - you are basically getting a free NES game for each 8 full price games you buy.......it wouldn't have hit their pockets that much to make the transfer rate 2:1 - but like you say, at least we can get something for the stars, rather than just naff wallpapers and ringtones! ;-)
#12
Got about 19000 star points and I wanted that zelda statue, grrrrrr.
Also I just tried to register another product and it says the stars have been added and my stars total hasn't gone up. Double grrrrrrrr.
#13
Oh yeah, totally. I posted the last time they did

The difference is now it look's like we're getting stuff that isn't limited to stock levels in the double digits :) . Just like the Japs have had for ages.
#14
Hold up so how do I get these stars/points? Is there a code on the back of each game box and Wii console as I still have my wii console box. Can someone tell me whats going on lol.
#15
Only Nintendo hardware and Nintendo published software.
#16
The post states that 'If you log on to the site you can earn 5 stars per day.' .................How?

Not entirely true, as there are points with some third party games too now - I got 200 points with Umbrella Chronicles, which is a Capcom game.....
#18
Are they going to keep the Points available for a longer period of time? Seems like they've all ran out...somehow. You'd would've thought they'd have an endless supply...
#19
can't believe they have ran out all ready!!

By logging into the site every day. :whistling:

I tried to register my DS and games a few months back but there was a problem with the website - looks like it's been re-designed since then...

Registered all my things except for Big Brain Academy as it won't accept the code for some reason, keeps telling me it's wrong (I checked 3 times!)

How long do these stars last? It says in my profile "Number of stars due to expire Dec 2007=0" - just wondering when this will change to 2000 lol

Am getting a Wii and a few games for xmas so will register them all and get me some more stars - I wonder how slow the website will be going on the day lol (just out of interest, does the speed of the online bit of the Wii slow down if there are too many users?)

Check that you are using capitals, and check the '0 and O' s - they look pretty similar on the codes, and I often mix them up.......might just be me though :whistling:
#23
I'm the same, cannot register Mario Galaxy.

+ the site is amazingly slow, even at 6 in the morning!!!

Same here!! I even emaild them (5 days ago) but still no reply!
:x
#26
I registered on Friday and tried to add my codes on Saturday, Sunday and today but with no luck - wouldnt acknowledge the security code - phoned nintendo and after ten minutes or so - which isnt bad so near to xmas - a person answered - not an automated person a real one!!! Anyway, the site is being altered, as many of you know, and its going to be a few weeks before its working properly. Basically leave it until we're into the new year before you start worrying - system bugs and sheer numbers of users are causing problems for now.

Hope that puts your minds at rest!! :thumbsup:

Still not got my spare wii with sports,paper mario, galaxy and golden compass that i've been billed £299 for and have cancelled 3 times!! Parshole Farce 24 let me down today - mmmmm theres a surprise :x !!
anyone interested let me know - cant advertise officially as I havent got it yet!! Should be here Tuesday!!!
#27
lovely jubilee thanks .
#28
Fantastic find.
#29
That would be great... except I can't get into my Nintendo VIP account! It's linked to my Wii Shop account, yet the Nintendo website claims I don't have a VIP account, says it hasn't heard of anyone by my name or e-mail address! I had around 1000 points as well, and have bought several things from there in the past, including a Game Boy Advance Kingdom Hearts edition and Zelda: Collector's Edition for the GameCube.

If I can get back into my account this will be great and I'll go nuts on the Virtual Console. Otherwise I'll just have to pay £7 per 1000 Wii points in order to download VC games :(
#30
Well I have been waiting to swap some of my 4100 stars for Wii points but every time I go to do it I am told that they are out of Wii Points and that I should come back later

Anyone know if we'll ever be able to swap these stars for points?

yes, i had roughly that number (in fact i am still waiting to convert my last 400 stars for 100 points)

save the club nintendo page as your homepage or just put it in your favourites then check it everyday (better first thing in the morning)

every day or so they put the cards up but i think either the larger values get snapped up instantly or they only have small ones available. in any case you will probably find yourself only able to get 100 or 300 point cards.

ALSO NOTE that you can only get one card per day! so get the highest value card thats available because tommorow they might be all out of stock.
#32
^^ I have seen the smaller values a few times and had considered buying them but was holding out of a biggie.

Thanks for the advice!
#33
just purchased a 500 point card! yay ! been waiting ages for it.
#34
I ordered loads of stuff but hasnt arrived
#35
There are about 200 wii points cards left to the value of 300 wii points (1200 stars) right now
also 200 of the 100 wii points cards (400 stars)

https://wiipointscard.nintendo-europe.com/php/index.php?lang=en_GB

can only have 1 per day but remember that there is no discount for the larger cards so might aswell convert them slowly than not at all :)
#36
I got 100 points on monday, 100 on tuesday, 100 yesterday and 300 this morning. They seem to be releasing them more often now but still not the biggies
