I'm just wanting to moan.

I have accounts for club Nintendo here, and in the states.

I get waaaay less coins for the USA account than I do stars for my UK one. My problem here is the disparity of items available to each club Nintendo.

I'd kill for the items and games the USA gets, as I always have plenty stars, but my 3ds is a uk model, thus I can't run any of the downloadable games from my usa account...

and the one thing I truly want from my usa account is unavailable atm :( The 3ds cart holder case with 4 inserts. I *really* want one :(

Anybody else sick of this?

I'll second your moan. Personally, I really like the SNES Wii controller, but I'd be cheaper and faster just buying one with the amount of stars required to get it!!! The rest of stuff is just crap...I mean, PC and phone wallpapers? C'mon, I got google for that sort of thing!!!

You do realise that Nintendo Europe has been drastically improving lately right?
Like... Just three years ago we didn't nearly have as much games as the US, now we get most of the games (besides a few ones but we also get some that they don't get). We don't have as many rewards, and sure, I'd like the gold and platinum members benefits in Europe as well, but there are some pretty cool stuff in the European store that the US one doesnt have, like the Link statue.

I know Ninty Europe have upped their game, even releasing things the USA never sees, but this club nintendo situation still bums me out. And I'm tempted to check out the japanese gifts, but know I'll just be even more put out :P

In the US we only got coins for first party games, while EU got them for most games (until recently they changed it for us).

I'm sure it's not that different, but yeah I'm loving my game holder haha...

Coins are cool then Stars, on that note. What does JP get? But anyway, I think you guys have some pretty cool stuff, our shop is full of notebooks, game cases, and shoe laces. You guys got Limited Edition Coins and Link Statues. I don't see why your complaining :l

Found this on Google. I envy the fact that they offer soundtracks from games.

I wonder why they don't have the same catalogues? Supply/manufacturing issues?

I think it's recent that now their added a Golden Nunchuck , Mario and Luigi 3DS Pouch that has one game slot inside to store. Hmm I'll just wait more things to pop out if there are any =/

It's nice to have exclusives, but I'm wanting to get the 18-game case they have, now that I have enough coins. It's been on backorder for over a month.
