    Wii points are being renamed to Nintendo points, Iwata said this already.

    It needs some clarification I think.

    3000 points on the DSi store are 27
    3000 N-points on amazon are 29.99 (with a 34.99 RRP)
    3000 points on the Wii are 21

    The Wii has a larger installed base than the DSi, so I suppose that could account for cheaper points for the Wii. Higher prices for points in card form doesn't suprise me at all, though that is a higher margin than has been seen in the past (14.95 for 2000 versus 14).

    Got a mail from Amazon saying there's a delay in getting my points cards -- trying not to honour the online pricing FU?

    There's 10s of millions of Turks that disagree and I note you don't actually give the reason...
    So you're Turkish? The reason for the percent sign being after the number is your beard looks like pubes.

    No I'm not Turkish, but I've been to Istanbul a couple of times and quite enjoy it.

    The placement of the percent symbol is irrelevant; I happen to like using it on the left as they do there.

    Do you mean 31? Hard to tell, what with your wacky use of percentage signs and whatnot.

    Sean, it is the same principle when the actual word "percent" is used? eg: percent 50?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Do you say dollars ten just because the sign says $10?

    I can't believe you guys have been arguing about this all day - you should be outside enjoying the sunshine. It was degrees celcius fifteen today, lovely Spring day.

    Raise your hand if you don't know what number is meant by 10.000.000 -- same principle and equally irrelevant.

    On-topic: has anyone who took advantage of Amazon's pricing FU on the new 3000 point cards gotten shipment confirmation? Looks like being amongst the last to order has resulted in my getting the short end of it -- or it's a ploy by Amazon to get people who got the discounted to give up:

    We have listed the item(s) below with the expected delivery date(s):

    "Nintendo Points Card 3000 (Wii)" [Video Game]
    Estimated arrival date: 29/04/09 - 05/06/09

    No irony what so ever in my comment, it was just made in passing. Been too busy myself however you on the other hand have being posting dick weed comments all day by the looks of things.........the irony.

    You come across as a bit of a bully to be honest by thinking it's cool to pick on certain people just because they may or may not have the same knowledge in video games as you or any other subject for that matter.

    I think you need to get outside a little more, I mean look at how many comments you've posted. I feel sorry for you. No wonder you haven't got a picture of yourself in your profile as I bet you look like casper.

    My comments maybe a little random but you just sound like a complete cunt & it needed saying. Fair do's maybe your trying to be funny but let's be honest your not.

    Thanks Binny, Mr Internet Policeman. Your previous posts seem to consist of 'everyone stop discussing this topic, you shouldn't be on the internet'.

    So, shall we just resort to calling each other dicks via the anonymity of the internet? You sound like you want a picture of me and my telephone number.
