Nintendo has begun dishing out free Wii Points to anyone helping their friends and family get online.
This is known as the Ambassador Promotion scheme. We've told you about it before.
From today, then, 500 Wii Points (around Ł3.50 / €5) will be awarded every time a new person takes their Wii console online.
Gold status is earned at 10 recruits, a perk of which is free access to any NES title on Virtual Console. Platinum status is obtained at 20 recruits. Get there and all NES, SNES and N64 games on VC are yours for free. You'll also have amassed a whopping 10,000 Wii Points (around Ł70 / €100).
