    Japan's pretty small, so they don't have to worry about several hundred thousand spoiled children wanting expensive free shit and cutting into profits.

    I thought that was already the case there :) Haha I highly doubt it would affect their profits. Aren't we already paying for the games/consoles to get those codes for those Club Nintendo stuff already? That's a lot we already spend on it? Unless you're shifty and pulling those codes out of the games if you work in those stores haha

    You're on! I'd be happier with the waterparks, disneyland, decent weather and cuter american girls.

    I do live in a nice green bit of scotland. Most of my windows look out onto fields. Lots of cows, deer etc. ;)

    Think they'd let us trade citizenships? hahaha :D

    :ninja: The cuter american girls part is a lie spread by the media, trust me :ninja:

    Anyways, all of them have the good points and the bad points, the best one is the Japanese one obviously, other than that I prefer the European to US one, because of the Link statue. =3

    The link statue's too expensive :) but I came close to it a few months back.

    Its not something I'd look to display. I hate the colour gold :P

    Yeah Fyrus, I got kid icarus for free, and had a few entries into the 3ds comp. Never won anything tho!

    I maybe shoulda chose the peach or the toad 3ds :P mighta had more of a chance winning those, but the mario one stole my heart!

    Still, I'd have lost all my ambassador stuff :(

    Could have transferred them.

    I still wonder if I should transfer my stuff on my Mario 3DS, or keep it as a backup.

    You won one? Damn... :D

    I don't think ambassador stuff can be transferred :( try it though! I'm sure I read that before.

    I really want one of those new dark blue 3ds's though :D

    It can be transfered, like any other eshop game.
    I mean, lots of people get a new 3DS and just transfer their ambassador games to it, before selling the console to gamming stores.

    I rushed to get the Wii SNES controller a few months ago. In past experiences, every time I saw new items on the catalogue, they were sold out instantly. Now, it seems they do a much better job of keeping club members happy by having better items in stock for longer.

    I have no major complaints, although I wish I could trade stars points for VC games like on the US club.

    Yeah, for the Wii VC shop, but not the 3DS. Trading for eShop credit or games would be even better.

    Oh I see, sorry. I didn't realise you couldn't use them for the 3DS. But I assumed you could seeing as the ones purchased in shops are interchangable and they look exactly the same.

    It's nothing like television or movies, there are tons of ugly people...plus a majority of american girls and guys for that matter are complete idiots. Yeah if you want to spend $100 to go stand in line at Disneyland all day long that's cool for you but I honestly hate theme parks and don't find them worthwhile at all. A nice, quiet, green Scottish province sounds perfect to me. I would trade citizenships with you in a heartbeat if it were possible!
