Europeans Can Now Trade Star Points For Wii Points

Kotaku - December 7, 2007


Submitted by ixaarii (407) at 5:18AM PST on December 7, 2007


"Every time they purchase and register a Nintendo product, they get star points. A lot like Japan's Club Nintendo, then, just without most of the cool stuff. Well, Nintendo Europe just made the process a lot more appealing: starting from today, you can trade star points for Wii points, which you can spend on all the Virtual Console games your heart desires. Feels strange saying this, but classy move, Nintendo Europe."

"Industry analysts Ed Barton and Jesse Divnich appeared unconcerned about Nintendo's announcement regarding the Wii shortage this holiday season. According to Barton and Divnich, the supply deficit won't deal too much damage to Nintendo's dominant market position. Furthermore, they noted that the Wii is still outselling its competitors despite the shortage."

The Wii Friend Code is Mii specific

gamers.fr - May 27, 2007


Submitted by Bungalow_Bob (552) at 11:27AM PST on May 27, 2007


The Wii Friend Code is Mii specific for all competitive online games - just like Mario Strikers Charged. This means that multiple people can play the same game online on the same Wii using seperate accounts, and that you won´t have to add friends again for future online games if you´ve already added them for Mario Strikers. Justin Dowdeswell, the producer of Mario Strikers Charged, confirmed this.

So, How Much Money Does Nintendo Make From Each Wii Sold?

Kotaku - December 1, 2008


Submitted by necron101 (435) at 11:26PM PST on December 1, 2008


It's a well-known fact that Nintendo turn a profit on every Wii they sell. What's not well-known is how much profit they make. Nintendo won't tell us, but Macquarie Securities reckon they know. And, according to a report in Forbes citing Macquarie data, it's $6 per Wii. Bear in mind that's an analyst calculation, not hard fact, but it's likely not too far off the mark.

Hitler not welcome on Nintendo Wi-fi

Wii's World - May 18, 2008


Submitted by koshbaby (430) at 12:23PM PST on May 18, 2008


Apparently it's still ok to have a Mii bearing the resemblance, but using the name is a no-no. This does raise the question, what if your name genuinely is Hitler?

Wii Tops 10 Million in the US

VGChartz - March 27, 2008


Submitted by Rol83 (458) at 7:08AM PST on March 27, 2008


Today, Vgchartz data revealed that Wii topped 10 million units in the Americas for the week ending March 22, 2008. Wii hit 10 million in only 70 weeks from its November 2006 launch in the Americas, which is easily a record... Within this generation it took Microsoft’s Xbox 360 109 weeks from launch to hit 10 million units sold... Even the PS2, which has sold the most units of any console in history, needed 84 weeks from launch to sell 10 million in the Americas.
