Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I pre-ordred NSMBWii and got a little surprise!

So today I stopped by my local EB Games and placed a pre-order for New Super Mario Bros. Wii and the clerk tells me that since I'm pre-ordering this game Nintendo is giving me 500 Wii points when the game releases!

Pretty neat, especially since I wasen't expecting it.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!?



That is pretty neat, i wonder why there's no advertisment of that pre-order bonus.



the guy said 'Bill' from Nintendo (I doubt he meant Bill Trinen) called today to let retailers know



whoa, giving away a 5 dollar game with every purchase?

To don't make this game front-loaded. Nintendo wants a okay release and monster legs like the DS one. Not a DQ scenario.



I wonder if the same will happen in the US -- I have had my copy on pre-order at Gamestop for a while.

I like to jump around, and would lead a fairly serene and aimless existence if it weren't for my friends always getting into trouble. I love to help out, even when it puts me at risk. I seem to make friends with people who just can't stay out of trouble.

I don't know how to respond to this.
For the consumer, it's a great deal, but what does this say about the business. What is the reason?



I guess I should place a pre-order for this game as well then.

Nintendo wants a lot of people to buy New Super Mario Bros Wii and possibly become introduced to the Virtual Console through it?

This could be a clever, cost-effective ploy to get people to give them more money down the road.
