Nintendo Stars = Wii Points?
Posted by Anthony Dickens
Website slip up reveals Nintendo Europe set to allow users to exchange "Stars" for Wii Points could be available very soon!
Spotted last week by one of our loyal members, the Nintendo Europe "Stars Catalogue" had an interesting item up for grabs, 1000 Wii Points in exchange for 789 stars! Alas, this deal turned out too good to be true. However, the following email suggests that the feature might be just around the corner.
Dear Nintendo fan,
Last Friday we have been running internal tests in the Stars Catalogue on our website. Unfortunately, because of a mistake during the testing phase, the Wii Points item accidentally appeared on the website between 4pm and 8pm.
We noticed that you have accessed the Stars Catalogue during this testing period, and that you spent 789 Stars on the item, without
getting any Wii Points in return.
First of all, we want to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
This item is not available in the Stars Catalogue, and the price of 789 stars used during the testing period was entirely random.
However, we understand that this may have caused a disappointment. So, as we know how committed you are to Nintendo - and given the exceptional circumstances - we decided to electronically send you 1000 Wii points, if you'd like that. In case you do not want to get these Wii Points, we will of course reimburse the amount of Stars you spent.
Please allow us some time to properly prepare the opportunity for you to choose between Wii Points or Stars. You will receive a follow-up email from us soon, so please keep an eye on your inbox."
There you have it, will Nintendo start allowing us to exchange Stars for Wii Points? Let's hope so!
