    All Europeans have been using the star system for the last couple of years. You receive 250 stars every Nintendo (first or second party) game and even some third party games. You also get 5 stars for every day you log in on www.nintendo-europe.com

    I just received an e-mail which adds some extra rules to the Privacy Policy, like the loss of your points 24 months after you bought the game. But the biggest news is this:

    Binnenkort zul je echter in de gelegenheid zijn om je sterren in de sterrencatalogus in te ruilen voor Wii Points als je je Wii-winkelaccount hebt verbonden met je lidmaatschap van de Nintendo of Europe-website.

    This loosely translates: Soon you will be able to switch your starts for Wii points if you have coupled your Wii store account to your Nintendo Europe website account.

    My brother and me have been saving a lot of stars, the only thing we bought with them was a black GameCube cap. Whenever there's something in the star store, it's either something crappy, something too expensive, or something that I missed because I'm too late.

    Edit: A fan on the Dutch Nintendo-Europe forums said that you get 1 point for every 4 stars. Not really that much. I've been collecting stars since the beginning, I have 8k now, so that's 20. 4 NES games.... Oh well, better than nothing.

    Edit 2: Expect this somewhere in July, since that's when they come with the new Privacy Policy.

    Anyway, nice! Free VC games. :D
