If My Nintendo was a member of a typical social group in a sitcom, it'd be the one that was recast because the original actor wanted too much money. It's just like the charming Club Nintendo that we all knew well, but it's not the same, and arguably not as good.

Nintendo has failed to win everyone over with the new loyalty programme, it's fair to say, but it's time to get out the champagne in North America. No, not because the interminable US Presidential Election is almost over, but because there are small discounts to, well, discounts on My Nintendo. Observe...

  • EarthBound (Wii U and New 3DS) - 30 Gold Points for a 30% discount (was 40 Gold Points)
  • Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii U) - 50 Gold Points for a 30% discount (was 70 Gold Points)

These rewards were only originally added less than a week ago, so we have a lingering suspicion that the deals were wrong in the first place and have been subtly corrected. In any case, there you have it.

Our thanks to all that sent this in.
