Nintendo Points Card

A Nintendo Points Card.

Nintendo Points are points that the player can use to buy games, channels, and applications with on the Wii Shop Channel on the Nintendo Wii or the Nintendo DSi Shop on the Nintendo DSi. The points come either come in "Nintendo Point Cards" that can be bought in many stores, or can be purhased with credit cards. Nintendo Point Cards have different points on them. There are 1,000, 2,000, 3,000, and 5,000 point cards. Before the DSi Shop was released, Nintendo Points were known as Wii Points, and still are, but only on the Wii Shop Channel. Although there has been a change, Wii Points Cards, are still sold in some stores, and still work.
