Ugh, not sure if I need this since I have no use for a second nunhcuk but I know I'll have some regret if I don't. I doubt anything else nice like this will come out to the US Club Nintendo for awhile so I'm going for it.

$70 or so. But I am talking about the Japanese import version.

I still only have one Nunchuck, so a win-win for me as I do have that Zelda Wiimote. :)

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

Took me about half an hour to register a bunch of stuff I was holding off on, but I got the 900 for the Nunchuk. Been waiting a long time for that.

And, uh, at least I don't need to worry about Platinum this year. Heh.

Yeah, and it is sure to drop when these start showing up. I'd imagine (pure speculation) that they'll be worth no more than $30-$40 soon enough. And considering that you need to spend 900 coins which could also net you 7-9 DLC games worth $5-$10 each that probably isn't a great value. I got one anyway since I actually need another Nunchuk but the gold with white cord used with a blue or black Wii remote will be a little hideous ;). I may just save it for Nov/Dec and if, for some reason, it is in more demand at that time, just sell it then to offset the cost of the Wii U.

Ordered one as well. Actually, this is my first physical reward I ever spent coins on in my 3 years of being a CN member.

I hope they restock the Hanafuda cards. They are extremely beautiful and I count them as arguably the most unique reward available.

Don't know if want golden nunchuck. I mean, sort of? Maybe? If someone sold it to me for a dollar cost I'd probably be down.

I can't justify the 900 for a gold sprayed nunchuk, not when I can get so many other rewards for that much.

I highly doubt Nintendo has some guy with a spray paint can coloring white nunchuks for this.

Of course not, you have to pay people for that. Machines on the other hand.

Is there a cap of 900 coins? First my freshly unwrapped Pilotwings 3DS code was already registered. Then I registered SMG and it only gave me 20 coins :(

Some games dropped in value for the new year; others gained value. The general rule is that Wii and DS games mostly dropped or stayed the same, and 3DS games increased. This was announced a few weeks before the cut off date of June 30th.

Yeah, there shouldn't be a cap as far as I know. There ARE coins that expired after a while, but this should show up in your account if you have X number of coins expiring. I'm fairly sure they only expire on the new calendar date, which would be June 30th (2013 for the next one).

I know for the Wii games, Nintendo pretty much cut the coin values down to what MSRP is listed at for their titles. DKCR / SSBB dropped to 30 to coincide with its new $29.99 MSRP, and anything that has hit the Nintendo selects cycle is down to 20. In the grand scheme of things it makes sense, but I did like the universal 50 coin value from before.

Oddly enough, two older games, Metroid: Other M and Sin & Punishment Star Successor's coin values stayed the same at 50, however both of those are easy to buy at under $10 with little effort. Always something to keep in mind if you need those last minute points for the Nunchuck.

Uh, have you tried to redeem a Metroid Other M? Becuase it was definitely on the list to drop to 20 coins - it's still there in the second post of this thread. If they in fact did not drop it from 50 to 20 then that is news there. It seems they actually did more drops than they indicated and not less. So I'd be surprised if it was really still 50.

Yeah, but again, looking at the list of drops, SMG was supposed to stay at 50. So if they really did drop it to 20 that pretty much sucks as they did so without warning. Oh, but wait, I guess this is an odd one because the codes are different for the regular SMG vs the "Selects" version of SMG: regular is 50, "Selects" is 20. That's an oddball because in all other cases both values dropped to 20. So, Antipodes, did you register a "Selects" code or a regular one. Maybe they lied and the regular one dropped as well.

Yup, I bought both of them in the past month or so (after the coin change effective July 1st), I got 50 coins for each. Check Club Nintendo's page, they have the most updated values, scroll down a bit to see them, click the Wii tab.

Regardless if its the Selects or the original version, they dropped both down to the 20 amount.

Well, see, that pisses me off - I traded away some Metroid Other M before the drop date because they said it was going to be 20. Meanwhile, I held on to SMG to redeem for the next club year because it was supposed to stay at 50 :bomb:.

Dropping the points is one thing, but giving us the wrong upcoming values when warning us of the change on July 1st was pretty lame.

And yeah, the second post needs to be updated then. I didn't realize they had (quietly) modified the points list on Club Nintendo - I thought what we had in the second post reflected the most up to date changes (well it did in terms of what they said they would change to originally).

So what other big changes were there? S&P was always going to stay 50 - that isn't a surprise. Metroid Other M definitely is though.
