Do you have any leftover Nintendo Point cards you are thinking about using for the 3DS Virtual Console? Well don’t. Keep them for your DSi and Wii wares. On the company’s Japanese site, Nintendo notes, “Prepaid Nintendo point cards cannot be used with the Nintendo 3DS. Prepaid point cards that can be used with the 3DS will go on sale at a later date.”

So there you have it. Nintendo again is changing up their virtual currency system making it a bit more complicated to jump between their consoles.

    i think nintendo should use the same points for dsi,3ds and wii but they not

    • bkarcher97

      I have heard that they are changing it from points to just straight cash

  • I blame Raunm.

  • Rats. I was wondering whether I could transfer my points somehow onto the 3DS's VC, but I by the second sentence of the Nintendo notes, it appears we'll be able to use them at a later date, which I'm fine by.

    Have you all forgotten that you can just transfer your dsi data to the 3ds? This really isn't a big deal at all.

      Thing is, it would be a lot easier if all consoles used the same currency… so you'd only have to buy one type of card.

      • That's not possible, they're different companies in competition with each other, they don't work together.

        • Hombre_de_Mundo

          We're obviously talking about NINTENDO consoles.

      You will have limited transfers though. No idea what the limit is yet.

      • Limited transfers for DSiWare this is.

  • Keith

    A bit stupid, but whatever. I hope they aren't doing this to jack up the prices of the VC titles.

    • They're doing it to make it a more fair and honest system, also so points/cash isn't so easily left over.

    Oh man! more spend on cards now in 3DS??! Well, shall to go to save a little more? What a drag!

  • Rats. That's all I have to say.

  • Chuggafanboy

    Aww man! I was actually saving a 2000 points card I got from Christmas! Might as well use it on the Wii!
