Nintendo To Release New 1000,3000 Points Cards

Wii points will soon be a thing of the past, as they will be relabeled as Nintendo Points and released alongside the DSi(or perhaps slightly before). This isn't just a simple rebranding of the name though, also coming with the name change will be 2 new point values, 1,000 and 3,000.

The 2,000 point card will still exist though, and will be sold along with it's new brothers upon release of Nintendo Points.

Unfortunately the cool 5000 point card won't be in America anytime soon.

These new point cards will be sold at retail stores April 5(the same day the DSi will be released in America).

Nintendo Points will work with the DSi and Wii, but they will not be shared between the two(so if you put 2,000 in the Wii, it stays in the Wii, and you will never be able to get them too the DSi).
