    Well could anybody confirm for me that Nintendo Point codes don't work on the E-Shop? I tried an old code(I used long ago) and it said it was used [​IMG]

    Should I try out myself with stars to buy 100 points?

    I heard that they won't work and that we won't get the 3ds ones until the end of this month.

    I thought that you could use previous point cards. I think I remember seeing one that had Wii/DSi/3DS on it. I could be wrong though.

    The Point Cards are not working because the eShop does not use points, it uses real currencies.

    Glad I could help. [​IMG] I read about it on a German news site and thought that, if true, it'd be (somewhere) on the customer service pages of the official page aswell.

    It is confirmed in very clear wording on page 13 of the eShop Manual.
