    According to Nintendo eShop cards will be available in the end of June. Well, today we have June 24th. One week to go before the beginning of July and no online shop lists those eShop cards, not even Amazon. What the heck is going on?

    Has anyone managed to get one of those cards yet and perhaps he/she wants to sell the pin number?

    Nope, haven't found them anywhere.

    I do want one, though as my credit card doesn't work on the eShop.

    Yeah but across regions and not countries. You can use a German card on a UK 3DS but not an American card on a European 3DS. Nintendo Points Cards (Wii, DSi) work the same way.

    Can anyone confirm this? All I know is that with a european 3DS we can have an eShop account for each country, depending on the country settings and money from one account cannot be used with a different account. Which means if I fund a german account with money, I will not be able to use the money with a spanish account.

    Not here so far, aren't Points Cards useless on DSi/Wii now? Or not yet?

    Best Buy got these early, had one before eShop launched and was able to add the funds when it did. I'll prolly just subtract funds from my card instead of buying more of these in the future.

    Bought a $20 3DS Points card at GameStop, they're red, and sort of holographic. Bought Cave Story, PvZ, and a Basketball game with it flawlessly. Also.

    IF YOU BUY ONE SCRATCH IT OFF IN FRONT OF THE GAMESTOP EMPLOYEES.

    I got one, took it home and scratched off the back. The numbeers came off too, luckly I had a nice GameStop that let me return it for another one.
