No need to stampede yet

Nintendo gamers Down Under have been enjoying Club Nintendo for a while now, and although its Stars Catalogue is lacking somewhat compared to other territories – something we investigated earlier this year – it still contains a few welcome bonuses.

Recently a round of emails was sent out to Antipodean Club Nintendo members to let them know that the PIN numbers present in the relevant games will now expire five years after launch. There's no need to start scrabbling through boxes just yet, though: the first game due to expire is Mario Kart Wii, which runs out in April 2013.
