Huge news: https://club.nintendo.com/coin-values.do
Club Nintendo coin values are changing for a bunch of games, starting next month (7/1). Many games are worth fewer points to closer match up with their current retail values, some games have actually increased in point value though. Check out the charts to see if any game codes you've been hanging onto are going to be adjusted.
I didn't find this myself, but it was posted via www.nintendolife.com
Also, the new Club Nintendo rewards are posted:
- Maboshi Arcade (WiiWare) - 150 points
- Donkey Kong (3DS VC) - 100 points
- Brain Age Express: Sudoko (DSiWare, 3DS required) - 150 points
- Kirby Super Star (Wii VC) - 150 points
Donkey Kong is the best of the lot in my opinion, offering a great game for a relatively small number of points. But all of the options are solid entries depending on what you like to play. The biggest detractor to Kirby Super Star is that it might be on the upcoming Anniversary compilation disc.
Yesterday I was wondering if Nintendo was going to make a real effort to get people to burn their points and register any games they might have been "saving" for Platinum Status next year. Seems like both the new games and changes to point values have this in mind. Well, worked for me.
