'veheard through the grapevine that Nintendo are changing the eShop payment system from using cash values to points, much like the Wii and DSi shops.
Personally I think it's a bit silly because everyone is going to have go back to working out how much they're spending on downloads again.
Ok, so it's not hard to do the math, but it's just unnecessary. Things are just fine as they are.
What do you guys think if this rumour is true?

@Tasuki I was told from somebody who worked for GAME here in the UK.
I know it's only at rumour stage, but, considering that GAME are now exclusively selling eShop cards for retail games, the rumour has a slight grain of truth to it.

GAME. GAME are the people who told me about a year ago that Nintendo Points would work on the eShop ("as it's the same Nintendo download shop") then in August last year told me my brother couldn't transfer his DSiWare games to his 3DS ("DSiWare doesn't work on 3DS as they use a different shop")

No they really don't. Nintendo have stated this on multiple occasions. I'd expect GAME to know this.

Or are you talking about DSiWare? Because I already knew that, we transferred the games anyway! :D

I wouldn't trust a GAME employee with any news. Once I went in asking about the possibility of a system transfer in-store when the 3DS XL first came out. They had no idea what they were talking about, and bull-pooped on for 5 minutes with a process he was obviously making up as he was going along.

It would make no sense for Nintendo to go back to a point-based system, they now have two consoles which use a much simpler monetary-based system. False rumour is false.

I think I would actually like this, doesn't it get rid of tax for each individual purchase?
