    It's been a long and arduous path to this moment, but we can reveal that Nintendo eShop cards are finally making their way out to stores in the UK.

    User BMagwood769 sent us this photo of a £15 Nintendo 3DS eShop card purchased in his local Sainsbury's supermarket.

    We've contacted Nintendo for further information, but hopefully this is the start of the long-awaited roll-out of 3DS eShop cards to stores across the UK and Europe.

    Update: We've also heard that the cards are available at ASDA stores in the UK.

    Nintendo has responded saying that a full statement will be released soon.[/p]

    Finally, now gotta wait for them to arrive here, so I can finally get some downloading done.

    Nintendo really are sloppy with digital distribution.

    Yay, eShop cards! Now, no need to entrust my credit card details do a big company when they aren't required! Finally, a solution for both the online credit card detail holders and the people that fancy typing in pin numbers on resistive touchscreens. (i.e me.)

    Looool, DSi Points Card took more than an year to come out here after the DSi's release!! Well this time the story is different since new gaming stores have popped up that are much faster in getting latest shit early.

    They should just call in some other company to do their online.

    Also it wouldn't be surprising if someone actually tried, the whole thing that happened to Sony, would happen to Nintendo

    Exactly, Ninty should outsource their online services to India.
