    Just got my Wii, where can I buy Wii points?`

    Need 1800 points to buy Super Mario 1 & 3 and California Games - and fast, I am so excited that I could be playing them! :giggle:

    So do you get any free from Nintendo? Or where's a good place to buy them (cheap!)?

    And where do the games store to? WIll I be able to access them from the Wii menu or will I have to go into the Wii Shop every time I want to play?

    Thanks all

    You can buy them from the Wii shopping channel, if you put your Credit Card details in...

    More longer term, you can exchange the VIP star points for them, at a ratio of 400 star points = 100 wii points, but this will take you ages...

    Once bought, they become a channel on your Wii... if you buy loads, you'll need an SD memory card to copy them onto when you don't want to play them (I've not had to do this yet, and have downloaded about 8 games)...

    Thanks

    So if I register my Wii and DS to get 1500 stars, then that will only be 300 points? How else can I earn stars?

    Is it cheapest to buy them from Nintendo or elsewhere? Cheapest I could find was £12.74 from Amazon.

    Yea, they work out at 300 wii points... plus you can only exchange them every so often on the nintendo website... You need to link your Wii account to your Club Nintendo account for this... info ]here

    They come in new games and consoles that you buy - mostly nintendo published games but a few others aswell....To find out which games give you CLub Nintendo (Star) points, go ]here, and from the left hand column, click Advanced Search, and then tick Club Nintendo Games.

    Try the forum search to see if there are any deals on Wii points, swapping your stars takes days, and usually involves getting up very early in the morning, so forget that option if you want them quickly

    It's cheapest to buy them elsewhere usually, but you'll have to wait... if you get them from nintendo (via your Wii), it works out about £14 for 2000 points, so not too bad really, and you'll have them instantly.

    Doh! I guess it doesn't accept those then, eh?

    Make a Wanted thread on FS/FT, asking for some Wii points - they should be able to PM you the code straight over

    Done, will give it a go!

    Alternatively, if someone has Wii points stored on their Wii, they can download the game as a Gift to you - you could pay them via Paypal for that? You'd just need to add each other as a friend on your wiis first....

    Ooh.. yea, you did - it was for the nunchuk advice, lol!

    Well, if I'd have known that, I wouldn't have helped! (Only joking!! Glad to have helped!)

    Hope you manage to get some! :thumbsup:
