Nintendo's at it again to try and push eShop sales and this time, if you add $50-$99.99 to your account, you'll receive a promotional code by email for $5 in eShop credit. Add 100$ or more and you'll receive $10 back. This is great as major titles are finally starting to release on the Wii U starting with Pikmin 3 on August 4th.
There is something semi-ironic about you fighting so hard to get me to play a game of which I've already played a decent amount of when it first released, while simultaneously ignoring the entire eShop catalog yourself. And it's not like ignoring a handheld which may legitimately hurt your hands or whatever, you would be playing them the same exact way that you play retail games on Wii U.
I wonder if you can mix payment options to get the bonus. I have a $20 prepaid card that I can redeem, so could I use that, then add anther $30 using a credit card, to get the $5 bonus? Or does it have to be one single $50 transaction?
@Guillaume I guess for some reason I was confused by this, but after thinking about it, a purchase could put you over the edge to redeem a DDP coupon, and then you could stack that money with some of the money you've used in this promotion.
Do third parties ever say in advance which of their games will be hitting the eShop? I know that Amanda and I will get Disney Infinity, but I'm sure it wouldn't really work as an eShop release because you'd need the hardware that comes with it.
@Mr_Mustache I don't want you to do anything. I just think it's odd that you push so hard for people to believe in a great Wii U launch, but ignore like half the games that would make your argument stronger.
