Nintendo Sheds Light On The Wii U's "Deluxe Digital Promotion"

Posted on Tuesday, October 30 @ 13:26:20 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Remember when Nintendo unveiled the release date and pricing info of the Wii U several weeks back? Maybe you have forgotten, but those who opt for the $350 version of the console will be getting more than just Nintendo Land, 32GB of memory and a shiny black machine—this deluxe package also treats gamers to Nintendo's special digital promotion.

Up until now, this membership has only been described in general terms. Fortunately, now mere weeks away from the console's launch, Nintendo has finally offered some specific details about the service. Better late than never I guess. 

According to the Big N, those "who purchase digital content for Wii U, including downloadable games in the Nintendo eShop for Wii U and download codes sold at select retail stores, will earn points with a value equivalent to approximately 10 percent of the Nintendo eShop list price of each purchase." The points count toward credit (every 500 points = $5) which users can redeem on either the 3DS or Wii U eShop. The deal will last up through December 31st of 2014, and all earned credit will be tied to your Nintendo Network ID. 

Does this added incentive to purchase digital content have you interested in ditching traditional boxed copies? Let us know in the comments below.
