Depends on the game, but most of them you can use either.

Great, thanks. Next - is the only way to buy points through their website? The "Virtual Console" link brings up a server error...

In the WiiShop channel of the wii, you can buy points using a credit card. In fact, I only buy games that way.

You can also buy a 2000 point card from any retailer for $20. I prefer buying directly from the shop channel though, since that doesn't charge any sales tax

Where have you been? The Shop charges 6.25% sales tax. So when I buy 1000 Wii Points it cost me $10.63.

Well, every state has its own tax rules. I have to pay 10.90 for 1000 points (9 %). Some reportedly pay no taxes for games.

By the way, the Nights Into Dreams reviews have been kinda mixed. Is anyone bothered by this?

Guess it varies by state. I live in California and don't pay any taxes in the shop channel, whereas a trip to the store would cost me an extra 8.25%

Oh wow. I was unaware of that. I find it strange though....the shop channels tax for me is 6.25 or 6.5. When I go to stores my tax is 7 or higher.

Oh I know, it's just my county tax and nothing more. No city tax is slapped on.

Same with me. I didn't even know they charged tax on the shop channel in the first place.

I been trying to trade my stars for a 1000 points card for a week now and every day its the same story: points card store "under construction" or 0 cards being left...

I just want that darn Pokemon Snap already and I never have time to just go out and buy a 2000 points card.

This sucks much, and to think that it could cost me over 5 years of stars doesnt make me much happier.

i decided to try medal of honor heroes 2

first off

EXCELLENT CONTROLS

ive only played one mission of the campaign and it was fun but i cannot comment about the campaign as a whole

now for the good part

ONLINE PLAY

there are...yes its true....NO FRIEND CODES

its ea's service and you simply register a handle with them and thats your name

the matchmaking is excellent and the fact that it goes up to 32 players is just GREAT

Whoa whoa whoa whoa WHOA. No friend codes? I didn't think Nintendo would even allow that. This gives a lot of hope for generally improved online play on the Wii.

Thanks for the info.

Has anyone heard news of these Stars coming to North America? I'd certainly like in on this. :?

I don't know why they wouldn't. They took away all the exclusive content on their site after all...

Ha, guys.

They've stopped offering ANY details on when trucks carrying Wiis will be out and about and what their routes are.

Apparently in Toronto a little while ago, someone tried to hijack a Wii truck at gunpoint. [not sure if it was successful or not].

Saw this in The Sun, so I'm sure you could get details from their site if you wanted to.

But seriously, hijacking a wii truck.

That's awesome.

Perhaps it was two guys with guns, shouting, "WII WOULD LIKE TO PLAY MUTHA FUCKA!"

Heard it had better controls without the Zapper? Confirm/deny?

Also, Coop, that was good for a hearty chuckle. :D

i dont have the zapper i use the wiimote by itself and that controls just fine!

So, that guy that figured out how to use a Wiimote and a laptop to create a cheap, working virtual whiteboard? He's figured out a cheap, working way to make 2D displays into pseudo-3D monitors.

Did Nintendo ever think of these kinds of applications when they came up with this system? Because if this one guy could, they must have figured out something with fifty or so guys.

Nintendo needs to get on this NOW. One of the coolest ideas I've seen using the Wii remote.

Head Tracking for Desktop VR Displays using the WiiRemote:

Look up. :3

Sorry, you've been beaten to the punch. In two different threads, no less.
