The Correct Price (finally) for a Great Product EDIT: This card will NOT work on the 3DS. Nintendo made an announcement that 3DS cards will go on sale at a later date.I’m writing this review for two reasons.1. To balance out all of the negative reviews because of the price. Amazon has finally priced this at the $20 it should be, so there’s no need for those negative reviews anymore.2. Because of all the great games for WiiWare and the Virtual Console (currently, there isn’t much to buy on the DSI. Edit: This has definitely changed since this was initially written). We all know about the scores of excellent classic games for all of the old systems on the Virtual Console. But WiiWare is proving to be truly impressive. Its home to extremely fun and innovative games that couldn’t have existed without digital downloads. Among the greats are World of Goo, Swords and Soldiers, Mega Man 9, Toki Tori, and Bit.Trip:Beat. And many more promising games are on their way such as Icarian:Kindred Spirits and Cave Story. Also, now that they’ve added easy access to games stored on the SD card, you shouldn’t need to worry about space constraints.Oh, and a side note to Amazon.com: Please make download codes for more WiiWare games like you did for World of Goo. Its very convenient.Edit: The price fluctuates a lot more than it should. I’ve contacted Amazon.com about this problem. I’ve seen it anywhere from $19.49-$25.00. Buy when its low if you can wait.Edit – Winter 2009: Icarian:Kindred Spirits was worth looking forward to, but apparently Cave Story is still on the way. Two more Bit.Trip games, Core and Void, have been released, and they are totally different, yet just as great as the first. Rubik’s Puzzle Galaxy: RUSH (by the makers of Toki Tori), Contra ReBirth, and LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias are a few more to add to the list of great games. Hopefully its more than just a rumor, but it looks like Konami’s next remake may be Jackal – a potentially promising co-op.Edit – Spring 2010: Mega Man 10 and Cave Story have been released. Mega Man 10 is, as expected, another excellent sequel. Cave Story was worth the very long wait. Its an extremely good platformer/action/adventure game along the lines of Castlevania and Metroid. The story is excellent, and the combat is just as good. There are multiple endings and other game modes to give it a high replay value. Its been a free game on the internet for years, but they remade all of the graphics and sound for this version. This is the kind of game to spend those Nintendo points on.Edit – Spring 2011: Many more notable Virtual Console, WiiWare, and DSIWare games have been released (several Bit.Trip games, Bejeweled 2, And Yet It Moves, Airport Mania, and others come to mind), but recently, I’ve been hesitant to purchase them. There have been rumors of a new Nintendo console. This is exciting news, but it leaves me wondering what will happen to all of my purchased content on the Wii? If the DSI to 3DS transition is any indication, it will probably be okay but not perfect. In the next month or so, you’ll be able to transfer your DSIWare games to your 3DS. I’m guessing “transfer” means that you won’t be able to play them on the DSI anymore. Also, any leftover points you have on the DSI will NOT be transferred to the 3DS (because the 3DS uses real currency rather than points), and some games may not transfer at all. This solution sounds far from ideal.Nintendo really needs to implement an account system where your games are tied to an account rather than a console. It really boils down to this: When the Wii 2 (or whatever they’re going to call it) is released, I’d like to be able to log in to it with my Nintendo account, and download all of the games I purchased for the Wii. If I knew that all of the games I’ve purchased on the Wii would work with the Wii 2, I’d be buying a lot more of them.

WiiWare and DSiWare: Let’s Enter the World of Nintendo’s Downloadable Software FYI, the conversion rate is 100 points = $1. It seems that Amazon had previously priced it above the normal conversion rate, but now it’s selling at $20 so it’s all good – hence the reason I wanted to write this review, to balance out some of the 1 star reviews from the earlier price point.So what do you need this points card for? You’re thinking, this isn’t a video game! What in the world is it?The Wii and Nintendo DSi allow players to download games directly to their respective systems – no discs or cartridges needed! To purchase these games from your Wii or Nintendo DSi system, you may either enter your credit card information and purchase points directly from the Wii or DSi Shop Channel; or you may purchase a Points Card and redeem the unique code found on each card. Once you have points on your account, you’re ready to purchase, download, and play any of the hundreds of titles available.Each week Nintendo releases several new games for players to download, and it’s grown to be quite a library available for download, from classic Nintendo and Sega titles to mind twisting puzzles to stunning indie games. If you haven’t checked out the Wii Shop Channel or DSi Shop Channel, or haven’t seen it in a long time, be sure to take a look – there’s a number of great titles already on the store and more coming down the line for both WiiWare and DSiWare.

What else can I say? It’s Nintendo Points. There you have it.You get a new card, unused from Amazon.com, and it works flawlessly. Perfect if you like the older Nintendo games, like me, and want to download them; many of the WiiWare titles are great, too.Buyer beware, though: NEVER pay more than $20USD, flat. Amazon.com occasionally sells these for $19.99, free shipping, so that’s the ONLY time to get them here (or cheaper). Once Amazon.com sells out, it takes a while for them to replenish their stock, so that’s when Marketplace sellers jump in and overcharge.Before, even Amazon.com sold these for more than what they were worth, but that no longer seems to be the case.If you can’t find these here at their correct price, most retail stores sell them for $20USD, no activation charge or taxes. If they do add those, don’t buy it. Go to another store that won’t.
