Why are the games cost sometimes odd amounts. Like some games cost 600 or 800 points but you can only buy points in increments of 1000 points. So you have to buy 1000 points to get a game for 600 points leaving you with another odd number of points. In this example you have 400 points left, so if you want to buy another game later for 800 points you have to buy another 1000 points. Why can't the games cost just be increments of 500 points? I know the answer and it makes me angry.
Thanks for the reply. I bought 2000 points some time ago and have been left with 500 points balance for about 6 months but most of the games now are at least 600 points which means I have to buy at least 1000 points to get the 600 point game. Angry
I absolutely agree! I'm finding it very difficult to justify wiiware and dsiware purchases. It seems deceitful to list a price but require me to purchase points in excess of that price in order to download a game. Could Nintendo ever have nintendo points for nintendoware? Even that would seem a bit more palatable. I found some games I'd like for my wii and dsi but I'm reluctant to get further sucked in to nintendo's point scheme.
Even though this discussion is really old, I'll post this anyway.
On www.amazon.com you can buy game codes, which gives you whatever game for the exact price, withought having to buy extra points.
There are only certain games on there, though.
