  1. So we could buy these, but if we don’t have a 3DS (yet?), they are presently useless. Seems like they’d wait until it’s actually launched, but all right.

    1. No because they’re useable with your Wii U or 3DS, whichever you enter the codes on it’ll go to that for your Nintendo Account. ie; You enter your code on 3DS eShop it’ll only be usable on there, and same with Wii U, if you enter it on that, it’ll only be usable on that.

        1. No, it doesn’t really work like that. Which is a bit of shame for Nintendo when they could have a unique credit balance for all systems a person’s registered on their Nintendo Account.

            1. Well I sure hope they do, it’ll benefit everyone that they’ll be able to tie in their 3DS and Wii U Nintendo account funds people purchase and enter with the codes.

              Also I’ve yet to see Nintendo release those special Pre-paid Cards with the QR Codes, because in the 3DS eShop they’ve got a QR Code Scanning option for the Pre-paid Cards, so hopefully it’ll be on these new ones.

          1. If these have the same values in Australia, I think they should drop the $35 and make a $100 value card. If full price games do become available on the eshop they are about $60-100 here.

            1. As long as the e-shop games are tied to the system and not to an account I couldn’t care less. I do hope though that Ninti will change this, and then they will get more of my money.

                1. ^ Was there actually any need for that? Just because he says that doesn’t give you the right to be a stupid idiot like that!

                  At the rest of this article. Sounds pretty good. I think the Wii U will be a hit. Leave luck to heaven: I think so! :)

              1. Well I just think the vc on the wii u is gonna suck. So many games on the wii that didn’t come out, the 3ds has some good ones but their isn’t a lot just dsi games, no gba and the content is just any random game on gameboy. You can’t throw nothing but hit games since it’ll die out quick but it’s like they don’t even try at all.

              2. Did anyone else see that boots video posted along with this post??? What was the point of including that along with the post??? Is that like the founder of the site or something??

              4. Now if one card can be spent on both my 3DS and Wii U together like with PSN allowing you to spend your funds on your PS3 and PSP/Vita together then ill be very happy. If not, then nintendo you just went full retard…

              6. Why buy that?You’ll waste gas money and your time to get to the shop and buy it for the same price but a little more.Then you’ll waste gas and time getting back home to find out that you could have just done it at home on the eshop.So fuck that.

                  1. Yeah, plus, if you’re already in the store getting other things, why not just grab it, instead of waiting to get home. That would be pointless. STORES FTW

                  2. Buying a pre-paid eShop card for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS is an epic idea. Time for me to use the card, swipe it on the Wii U GamePad’s Near Field Communications sensor… and BOOM!!!!! Buy anything I want at the eShop!!!!!!

                  3. Hopefully they make it to where if you have both a Wii U and 3DS, then you can link them so if you buy a card, use could use $30 for Wii U and $20 for 3DS… that would be cool.

                  9. If it’s for both, I wonder if the eShop will use a universal monetary system, as in, if I buy a $20 card and spend $10 on the 3DS, can I spend the other $10 on the Wii U? I would love that.

                  10. Well, I bought 2 of these cards, and both codes gave me the error code 005-5561 meaning the codes were faulty. I called Nintendo customer service and they couldn’t figure it out and now I have to wait 1-2 business days to either get money credited to my eshop account or have the codes working. Buyer beware. Maybe if only one didn’t work I could believe it was just a fluke. The guy told me they had been activated and that he didn’t know why they didn’t work.

                      1. Well, they didn’t work, but About an hour after this post, I got an email from Nintendo support letting me know they credited my account with the $40 and that next time I logged into the eshop, the money would be there. It’s realy great to know that Nintendo reps will go the extra mile to fix issues.

                    1. oh um………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………PIEEEEEEE!!!
