    I remember reading some time ago, that if you buy a new DSi, that Nintendo would give you 1000 DSi ware points as gift. Is that true? For which regions?

    Anothe follow up question:

    Do you need to create an account for your DSi points or I just need to get online to get and add Nintendo Points?

    Sorry, I dont have a DSi

    Yeah, you need to create a Club Nintendo account. Then it'll log you into the Dsiware shopping channel.

    I guess the free points are the only reason I'd buy one.

    Wrong.
    I don't recall creating an account or linking to Nintendo Club account or anything.

    Just go the shopping channel and skip the linking to N Club option (you can do it later if you have one) and a message will appear saying that you have a 1000 NP as gift for buying a DSi (or something like that [​IMG])

    Get WarioWare SNAPPED, I highly recommend it.
    Pyoro's game is so fucking addicting too.
    Dr. Mario is a must have. And check out Mixed Messages, it's really fun playing it with your friends.

    Stay away from brain age, and the magic games. They're crap.

    EDIT: I'm downloading Art Style AQUAIA right now, I will tell you if it's worth it or not [​IMG]
    EDIT2: ok so the game is like puzzle league or meteos, you switch and push 2 blocks with another to match 3 or more blocks of the same color. It's not bad if you like puzzle games, but TBH I didn't like it that much.

    There is absolutely nothing worth spending the points on right now on DSiWare. The only thing I've downloaded is the Opera browser and that was free. It's not that great either. Very slow and most sites don't load properly.

    Another question: I have 700 WiiPoints. Can I use them on DSi ware?

    You're welcome. [​IMG]

    Sadly you can't use your Wii points on DSi. Once activated for either system the points can't be used on the other.
