    As usual. NoE fucking us over again. I hate their narrow minded idea of what "Europe" is.

    If you only support 14% of the countries of Europe, don't call yourself Nintendo of Europe.

    What do you want Nintendo of Europe to call themselves? "Nintendo of the rest 14% countries of Europe" ?

    It'll no doubt include using AR cards. Might give this a try.

    Well it's kinda ridiculous that most countries (for example the Nordic countries) can't get the offers they're having. Not because the Nintendo rep/resellers wouldn't want it. It's because Nintendo of "Europe" isn't making it possible. Hell there are quite a few people willing to pay for a service like Club Nintendo. So yeah it's not the same thing as being Nintendo of Europe. The channels are present in nearly every single country that sells the company's products so why not make it happen?

    Read again, they ONLY support 14% not 86%... so in that case I rather they call themselves "Nintendo of 14% of the countries of Europe".

    Well, I don't know how well stuff sell in those countries, but in order for a country to be part of NoE, they need to have an official Nintendo division in said country or region.
    These are the European Divisions so far:
    -Nintendo Benelux (includes Nertherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg although it seems that only Nertherlands is an actual member)
    -Nintendo Ibérica (my country and Spain)
    -Nintendo France
    -Nintendo Germany
    -Nintendo Italy
    -Nintendo UK

    And all of these belong to a larger division, the NoE (Nintendo of Europe).

    While it lacks lots of European countries, it has some that are widely known worldwide, like Germany, Italy, UK, Spain and France, having those countries included is enough for most people to see it as Nintendo of Europe already.
    Anyways, it's not really Nintendo's fault, and they'll open up to those regions as soon as they build a division in said country, until then said country won't be an official member from NoE.

    Oh alright, well I'm not sure how well things sell here actually... However it feels really cheap to not be able to take part on offerings, such as the free kid icarus game, competitions, star points, etc... I buy stuff like anyone else, and feel that I don't get anything back for paying more. (Games are insanely expensive here).
    We do have an official Nintendo division here though, and it is even listed as being a country in Europe by NoE on their page here: http://www.nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/service/nintendo_global_2148.html

    However, we don't qualify as an European country to take part on the offerings, and the fact that South Africa can, and I can not... it hurts my brain.

    It's not an official division from NoE, it's probably partnered or something, but not really part of the Nintendo of Europe group, otherwise it wouldn't show this:

    Nintendo probably hired some other company to take care of things or something like that, the same goes for most of the countries in that link you showed, most of the countries aren't really "Official Divisions", at least not when related to Nintendo of Europe, maybe it was the countries themselves that didn't want to join the NoE group, it's kinda like the European Union, countries have a chance to join, but not all that are able to join, want to.

    And since my country is a sony fanboy, we don't have a "other company" and we will possibly never get a Nintendo Devision.
    Sometimes living in eastern Europe sucks, especially in consoles. :hateit:

    If you know someone in an NoE country, you could work together with them for goodies etc.
    You could (with agreement) use their home adress and use a hotmail.(NoE country extention) for example, it's a bit tricky but it could work XD.

    DCG: For the kid icarus offer, I had to register two games from a list with some special code which weren't included in my games cause they were bought in Sweden. :/

    I even emailed them wondering if there were any chance for me to take part of that offer, but all I got was a bot message after more than a week, saying that i just should register my games ... i hate bots.

    :O about registering games.
    I guess they are polling a continuation about Kid Icarus, man that was one unique questionary form (one you can do for 50 points). They asked a lot of questions specifically about KI, something I haven't seen before at those forms.
    I guess they realy want to "re-start" Kid Icarus.

    It doesn't matter since the games sold in the Nordic countries don't include the codes. Even if Issac returned the games for a new one, he'd still be missing out. Never actually thought about this, but buying a Nintendo 3DS game from the UK (with the code) costs only about 60% of what it costs here in the north. After a few weeks the price may even be at 50%.. with the code.

    Australian 3Ds are considered European region, why no contests for us?

    The boxes aren't opened, but there are no codes. The language of the cover is in nordic languages as well, so it's not the UK edition we get.
