    apparantly its a box with that 50 dollar game Wii Party and a Wii Plus remote and some "Mystery gifts" inside, i am pretty sure one of the mystery gifts is a Mii mask.

    the only problem is, sicne they only gave out 350 of these i really dont want to open my box lol i would rather set it aside for later and sell it to some collector.

    That's oddly nice from Nintendo o.o
    Are they always this way?

    What a nice gesture!

    Nintendo is treating their US Club Nintendo service with more care than I had originally thought.

    So, how "loyal" of a customer are you? I assume you must have quite the stockpile of coins for you to get such a rare gift. [​IMG]

    That's really good, all those things are quite expensive in Australia.

    3000ish, the trick is to go to gamestop then take pictures of the pre owned game codes. no one gives a fuck and you get free shit.

    you guys are thinking of something COMPLETELY different.
    this is a bonus gift given to only 350 people who had the most points accumulated on club nintendo (i'm guessing)

    if you have not recieved your box yet then you are not one of the 350 lucky onse.

    this is not me in the video but this land whale and I both are one of the 350 [​IMG]

    Do you really think it will accumulate that value in a couple years or will people forget about it and not buy it when you try to sell it?

    I suppose either way it might be something nice to hold on to.

    The game is a spy...


    or a bomb.


    But really, damn. I'm a pirate so it doesn't matter, but that is incredibly strange to see Nintendo give something like that out for free.

    I'm jealous! The two DSi socks I ordered arrived today, though.
    Are they supposed to be so tight? I mean, they're good quality but I feel like I'm suffocating my sister's DSi and my 3DS.
    Think I might just buy an official case for myself.

    Shit. I'm screwed. Even I won, I won't be able to receive the gift because I was using a friend's address and he has moved....

    I'm jealous.

    It's pretty awesome for Nintendo to give away a free Wii game along with a Wii Remote + MotionPlus.
    even though this was probably just extra surplus that they didn't need.
