Ripped off 200 dollars worth of Virtual Console games
Posted by on
I've had a Wii since the moment they came out; I bought one on the midnight release in Nov. of 2006. Since then MANY games have been purchased for the console, wiiware, and virtual console. As well as being a fan since the NES days (still have all of my Nintendo systems from the past) I was more of a fan than ever. When the new black Wii was announced I knew I was going to buy one. Since I don't understand "Terms and Agreements" I called Nintendo customer support to find out if purchasing one would be possible. I specifically asked about selling my old one to go towards the new black one and I was told after being put on hold just to "call when you get the new Wii." "And I will be able to get my games?" "Yes, just call us back."

Apparently operators aren't trained to know Nintendo's policies because I know now that would never happen. Why would somebody give away 200 dollars worth of Virtual Console games for a different color Wii? Nobody. Not even me. I thought, "Its fine, Nintendo's customer support is the best in the industry. They'll fix this for a customer loyal as me." Wrong. After speaking to numerous people they seemed to Dodge the fact that I was lied to, as if they think I'm lying. I have no reason to lie, I just want what I've paid for twice already: the actual game cart and the download the first time.

Nope, nope, nope. Policy is policy. They tell me there isn't ANYTHING they could do, but I know that's a lie. The content is a digital download not one of a kind software. How about sending my console in and adding them? It’s not that they couldn’t do it, it’s against policy. And this is where the loop begins: "We can't do anything without the old console." But, I realized that I never would've been in this situation if Nintendo's customer support was properly trained or at least care enough to forward the call to somebody who did know. If I was told correctly I would've never bought a new Wii, I would still have my games, and I would still be happy. Thanks Nintendo.

My console has the ability to load the games onto a SD card. That way the games are portable.
Weedwhacked on 2010-08-11:
That's why you should read the terms and conditions. Salespeople and CS agents will probably say anything to make a sale.

Numbers on the back of the points cards get scratched off too easily.
Posted by on
I like to buy the kids the Wii Points cards so that they can download the classic games off of Wii Shop. You can download Mario games from NES and Super NES as well as N64 and Sega. You can also download Wii games with the cards so that you don't have to go out and by them.

For the third time now I've scratched off the back of the card to reveal the numbers, only to have the numbers scratch off too. It's very frustrating and very upsetting. These cards are not cheap. They cost 20.00 a piece for 2000 Wii points. Double that when you have to go out and replace them for another because the numbers scratch off the back.

It has nothing to do with scratching too hard, you scratch it like you would a lottery ticket.

We love our Wii console, just downloaded Uno the other day, but am very tired of having to buy two cards instead of one on the off chance I've received another bad card.

I'd be irate, too. Is Nintendo at least replacing them for you or giving you the points or whatever? I don't have a Wii-I'm still on Atari, so I don't know how that works.
Anonymous on 2010-02-16:
I love my Wii. How many points does it cost for the games you mentioned? Once you download them, is there a way to back them up, like to another memory chip?
Inat on 2010-02-16:
I purchase my Wii points online from the console - easy and no scratching
Anonymous on 2010-02-16:
Princi, Do you get your money back for the unusable cards?

Inat, Good suggestion.
Ytropious on 2010-02-16:
I know what the OP is talking about. You need to be real gentle with the scratch area. I would just stick to using a credit card and buy them right through the Wii Shop channel.
klobbersaurus685 on 2010-02-16:
The only time I have ever had an issue with any scrach off card, be it for Wii or Xbox, is if I used something other than a coin. I tried using the back of my pocket knife blade and it destroyed a couple of the numbers.
Just keep using a coin and don't try to dent the card as you scratch. I woul try contacting Nintendo about the cards. not sure if they will do anything, but it's worth a shot.
Or go through the console with your CC.

American Consumers Held Hostage Again!!
Posted by on
NEW HAMPSHIRE -- I have been a "victim" of abuse both ethically and from business practice point of view, by Corporate America consumer retail stores, as well as the manufacturer of Wii- Nintendo. I understand the supply vs. demand rule, and I also understand when corporate America place an order with their suppliers that, a "promise date or a delivery date " is provided to the buyers by their suppliers, but this particular product had me puzzle for months that absolutely not one department stores; Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Amazon, Target, Sears and many other stores has any clues on ETA of this product? Why? That is because the American buyers are too chicken and powerlessly unable to obtain a delivery date from Nintendo, since Nintendo do not have an answer nor production schedules to fulfill a contractual requirement of a purchase order. They are holding the American consumers hostage. And laughing at our corporate buyers for their desperations and anxiously awaiting product to suddenly appear on their docks?????

I'm at a point now shifting my "love" for this product into "HATE" because I just absolutely refused to be held "HOSTAGE" by incompetent American buyers and the manufacturer -Nintendo. I joined the gym today for $349 per year, yes, with an indoor swimming pool. And, eBay, you guys are just too greedy, just like the OPEC oil scenario, don't think I will bend over to buy your "greed" product either. What I would like to see is we boycott this item. I really would like to see the American consumers united together and send a message back to Nintendo (president is Iwata) and tell him where he can go..

Meantime, you large retail idiots, you need to understand how consumer behavior works, love-hate, we can learn to hate you very quickly!! I hope you guys are not going to be looking for bail-outs, because you won’t get it from us. Finally, message to all your buyers - DO YOUR JOB!!!

Nintendo is for kids...

Sparticus on 2009-01-12:
I have a Wii, and I guess I am a kid at heart.. ;-)

Most of my adult friends either want one, or have had one for years.

What makes the Wii more attractive to adults is that you don't need to invest a lot of time in learning the games to have fun... The games are highly interactive and utilize your natural eye-hand coordination.

My wife wants a Wii Fit now, she tried one over the holidays. They are pretty neat and they work great for doing fitness activities out of your home.
Anonymous on 2009-01-12:
Well, I want my Wii, too. Target at the District has them and won't sell them, so it is not completely the buyers fault. They are holding them for a promotion so even though I have the cash to hand them now, they are waiting. If you haven't already seen my review, here it is. http://www.my3cents.com/showReview.cgi?id=47019

I have a Wii. Found it by chance one day when I was walking through Best Buy.

NickL11354 on 2009-01-12:
I guess I am not a normal adult. I drank the kool aid and bought a Nintendo Wii with games + Wii fit for over $600 combined.

I cannot see what all the hype is abou. To me it is boring as hell. Maybe if you are 15 and have the maturity of someone that level. You guys who drank the kool aid and spent $600 - $1,000 on this are just trend w***res. I admit I was bought also but they have a nice ad campaign similar to apple.

I guess I will stick to my gym memberships which I am paying over $200 a month.

Its the games they put out that gets me....Zelda and Animal Crossing aren't my cup o tea....and if I want to play tennis or whatever I'll go outside and do it...

I do like the commercial where the dude throws the controller through the other dudes tv...classic
Anonymous on 2009-01-12:
Held 'hostage' because the latest toy isn't available 'right now when I want it'? NickL11354 brushed the real issue head on...'maybe if you are 15...'. Hang in there, the latest 'something else' we just 'must have' is comin' round the bend.
madconsumer on 2009-01-12:
what does joining the gyn for 349$ have to do with no toy to purchase?

you are not a hostage, you have a choice to purchase it or not.
jktshff1 on 2009-01-12:
the op is going to work out rather than play games sitting on his but.
Ytropious on 2009-01-12:
Are you kidding me? The wii has been out since November of 2006, you've had 2 years to find one. I GUARANTEE if you've been looking since then you'd already have one. I've been walking through stores and they've had them randomly in stock. Where I worked we had a ton this Christmas, we'd have them in stock for entire days instead of selling out when we open. The stores do not usually know when they come in, at least at my store we don't. Also, stores holding them for a Sunday ad is perfect, know why? It lets everyone know when they'll be in at the same time. No "right place right time" stuff. I'd RATHER they be held for Sunday ads so everyone has a fair chance.
Buddy01 on 2009-01-12:
I really hate it when someone without a clue tries to tell someone else how to do their job.

OP- What was the point of the rant about the gym? Also, E-bay does not sell the items, individuals do. So wtf are you talking about?

Excellent Tech Support
Posted by on
MADISONVILLE, KENTUCKY -- This morning at about 10:00 my son and I decided to get in a quick game of Wii Boxing before lunch. He proceeded to kick my butt for about 3 games before we decided to play bowling. Again he proceeded to kick my butt, however, 20 minutes into playing the screen went black, an error message came up and both Wii controllers started vibrating and blinking.

After 2 unsuccessful attempts to fix the problem as per the manual that came with the Wii console, I decided to call up Nintendo thinking that the console was having a bigger issue.

I called the 800 number, pressed 2 buttons and in literally 25 seconds was transferred to a tech support representative. Not only was I shocked at such a minimal hold time, I was more shocked that the person I was speaking with was not outsourced from India. This person was located in California! (I hope you're reading this Microsoft)

I told her what the problem was and said that I tried twice to fix it as per the manual. She was very polite, told me what to turn off the power and unplug it from the wall for 25 minutes. She stayed on the phone with me the entire time!

I was finally able to get the game disc out of the console and found out the reason for my error message, she said a scratched game disc was the culprit. A new game will arrive on Friday along with a box to send out the old one that caused the console to freeze. And none of this is at my expense.

I am very satisfied with this product and the companies customer service, so much so that I will recommend this product to anyone. Nintendo gets an A+ in my book!

My son wants a DS for his birthday this year. He's got a gameboy, but it's the only thing he wants.
GothicSmurf on 2008-02-27:
That's awesome! I hope that if I ever have an issue, I'll get the same customer service!

Princi- my son plays his DS way more than his gameboy. And the DS plays the gameboy games.
Principissa on 2008-02-27:
GS I didn't know the DS played the gameboy games. I was worried that we would have all these games he wouldn't be able to play anymore.

Princi, the DS is so worth the money. I actually have one myself. Mostly, I play the BrainAge game. But, I do also really like Mario Kart. Each of my kids also have a DS, and it's great racing each other. If you are in the same room, you don't even need Wireless - they communicate with each other. I have even raced against the kid who lives down the street, while he's in his house and I'm in mine. Sarah has taken hers on field trips to play on the bus. Many other kids do too, and they send messages, pictures, and even race each other. Have you heard of Animal Crossing?
GothicSmurf on 2008-02-27:
I heard you the first time. :) Yep, it plays both so you won't have to worry about having all kinds of games that can't be played on it. My son has both and I let him take his regular gameboy on flights and what not so if he loses it, he can still play his games on the other system.

He loves being able to trade Pokemon Characters with other kids at the after school program and when they come over
sunshine619 on 2008-02-27:
Good job Nintendo! I hate that so many companies are outsourced these days...good for them. Wii is a blast, although I have to say my favorite will always be the original Mario Brothers. old school and awesome.
Principissa on 2008-02-27:
Sunshine I have a Nintendo, Super Nintendo, N64, the original gray gameboy, gamecube, gameboy advance, and a Wii! My son has the gamecube in his room now but we can play the gamecube games on the Wii. And in July we will now be getting a DS.

And you're right, nothing beats a game of Duckhunt or Mario Bros.
Anonymous on 2008-02-27:
Love the music that it plays when Mario goes below ground in MarioBros. I'm humming it right now, as I duck below the fire from that Dragon.

Starlord on 2008-02-27:
I have a Nintendo 64 console with about a dozen games and a Play Station 2 with about 6 games. I hardly ever play the PS2, as I spend most of my game time on the 64 with my fave, 'Perfect Dark.' I will probably never get customer service when he 64 because it is obsolete, but there are enough peopl on eBay selling game, controllers and consoles that I really don't have to worry for a long time. We had an NES that was stolen in a burglary, and I miss Duck Hunt, Freedom Fighter, and Super Mario Bros. We have a Game Crazy here, which is where I bought our 64, then I found the people selling on eBay. It may take a couple of days when he shipping, but they got game Crazy beat on price.

Thanks for the great post. Always glad to hear which companies really stand behind their products.

Another great company I recently had to call was Bose. They also have very helpful, "English: speaking techs based in the US. Figured out my problem in no time. I would buy any of their products, anytime.
Nohandle on 2008-02-27:
Something's wrong here. Surely I misread. A telephone call was made to a company, a human picked up within 25 seconds, that human could speak English as a primary language, that human did not transfer your call to another individual and the company is going to send you another Game? Do I have that right?

Hey, you other companies out there..pay attention. Obviously you'll be sore with Nintendo for daring to provide Customer Service for a change but consumers are getting fed up. UNDERSTAND? Thanks Princi.
Principissa on 2008-02-27:
Nohandle, I was literally speechless. I was expecting the same service we received from Microsoft when our Xbox broke. We were on hold for almost 45 minutes, I know this because I just put a load of laundry in before he called. It was done drying when someone picked up. We had the phone on speaker so I heard everything. The first woman spoke such horrible English you could barely understand her so we asked to be transferred to someone else, we got put on hold for 10 minutes, the second guy hung up on us so we had to call back and hold for 30 minutes before we finally got a human. Xbox is going to get a scathing review when we finally get our Xbox back. Hubby is half ready to trade it in to Gamestop when he gets it back and buy a PS3.

What's with the Echo Principissa? I had ALL the systems...Until the day that my 4 year old was playing Grand Theft Auto Vice City and my wife noticed that he had learned how to snipe peoples head off. Soooooo, I don't own the PS3, PS2, XBOX360 and all my GTA PC games have been sold or confiscated. On the plus side, my Wii and DS kick butt.
Principissa on 2008-02-27:
LOL Mario! I'm really short so sometimes I have to say things really loud so people can hear me.

We have those games Mario and they are kept under lock and key. I like to play them myself so they get locked on the top shelf in the closet. I absolutely love the Wii, yea the 360 has amazing graphics and COD4 was soooo good, but with our Wii we can all play a video game together. I still have yet to figure out how my 3 year old can throw a 97 mph fast ball in baseball.

This is what customer service should be
Posted by on
Not my story but here's a link that I had to post

http://fiendishgleeclub.vox.com/library/post/customer-service-gone-shockingly-right.html

I bought a Nintendo Wii on launch day (11/19/06). Every day since then, excepting the two weeks I was on vacation, it has been lovingly used in our house. It has traveled to spread the gospel of Nintendo-style gaming in the homes of friends and relatives. It has been lent out as the star of children's birthday parties. And all this time, its optical drive was a little louder than I liked, but I thought maybe they were all that way.

Over the past few weeks it started getting louder. I knew I should get it looked at. It wasn't damaging game discs, but it was really annoying when the vibration noise was louder than the game sounds. I just hated the idea of explaining to my 6 year old that when he does want to play -- because he does a lot of things that are not playing video games, but it's a tradition for us to have a quick round of Monkey Ball or Mario Party in the evenings, and I traded in the GameCube for the Wii since the Wii plays all the GCN games -- that it would be out for a few weeks getting repaired. I finally resolved to send it in over this coming weekend, when we had lots of outdoor outings planned.

So I called the Nintendo customer service telephone number, located right there on their web site (you would be surprised how many companies, and especially repair departments, don't list their phone number on the web). The message telling me I had to wait for a CSR didn't even finish playing before a rep was on the line. I explained my problem and she said she'd get me an RMA right away to get it fixed.

She asked for my phone number. I gave it to her. She did a bit of a verbal double-take and said, "Are you here in Washington?"

"I'm in Redmond, as a matter of fact [location of Nintendo of America's campus]," I replied.

"Well then, let's not bother with the RMA and the shipping labels and all of that. Just bring it on in to Nintendo," she said.

Wh-what...?

She assured me she was not kidding. She gave me directions to the Nintendo campus building where the Customer Service Center was located, and five minutes later I was looking at an unassuming door. I took a deep breath, told my son to hold on to the Wii with both hands, for goodness' sake, and opened the door.

A life-size Mario and a larger-than-life Pikachu greeted us. So did a really nice, cheerful woman behind the sales counter. I related my telephone conversation to her, still certain that I'd been had.

"Oh, yeah!" she said. "We do that!"

"Awesome," I blurted. I really did say "Awesome." I'm embarrassed about that now.

"It's going to be about 30 minutes, though," she went on. "I'm really sorry."

She wasn't Japanese, but clearly Nintendo is a Japanese company. Only a Japanese service center would apologize for taking 30 minutes to repair a piece of electronics when my expectation going in was that I'd be without it for two weeks.

The boy played games in the waiting area while I sat under the watchful eye of Mario. 25 minutes later I saw her emerge from the back room out of the corner of my eye, but I was watching the boy playing a particularly suspenseful level of Wario Ware Twist. She waited until she heard the "level complete" sound to get my attention.

In those 25 minutes, they'd transferred all of my Miis, friends, and saved games from the old console to a new one. She logged on to make sure my 500 points transferred to the shopping channel. She sent me out with a $0.00 invoice showing a warranty replacement of my Wii and a reset of the warranty clock, meaning the Wii I took home has 15 months of coverage from today, even though I bought my original one almost 3 months ago.

So this is my Valentine to Nintendo. That was the most awesome customer service experience I ever, ever had.

Great Product. Why do they advertise a product that is not available?
Posted by on
OHIO -- Retiree here. Purchased this game December 30 at Walmart. Absolutely wonderful with no quality issues. I would like to purchase additional games for my married children. Almost impossible. Neighbors have played mine and want one. No chance. Why do they spend money advertising the product on TV, when people can't buy them at the regular price?

Nintendo needs to put advertising dollars into new plants. Absolutely ridiculous management.

They are purposely keeping supply tight in order to keep demand and pricing high. There are plenty of them out there to buy, if you are willing to pay a premium. If you want to save money, you have to be willing to wait a month or two.

The graphics pale by comparison to the xbox360 in HD.
Suusan B. on 2008-02-14:
It's called a "marketing plan" - - high demand plus short supply ensures that the public interest will remain high and that people will be willing to not only pay full retail but a premium to boot. Like Hugh said - - hold tight for a couple of months and you should be able to buy all you want at a reasonable price.
Principissa on 2008-02-14:
We love our Wii. We play it almost every night. We only have the Wii Sports and Mario Galaxy but it's so much fun! We can actually play as a family.
Normally I would side with Nintendo and say supply and demand and it's a very popular console that every one wants. I also would have said that it takes a lot of time to produce them. But I also agree that they are sending out as few as possible to the stores just to keep the prices up.
GothicSmurf on 2008-02-14:
Princi- Go and get Guitar Hero! Hands down the most fun game I've played. (In case you missed my million other posts singing praise for this game)
Anonymous on 2008-02-14:
Nintendo Wii rocks. Suusan is right on about the marketing of Wii. Spart, we have found the grandkids much prefer playing the Wii box over the other inferior systems. Nintendo Wii is by far a better system then anything xBox could ever dream of manufacturing. The graphics are far superior and the quality of the operating system is much better than an xBox. The xBox is yesterdays news.
Anonymous on 2008-02-14:
You are right, Pirate, the graphics don't compare. But, of course, neither does the price. For the money - this is the best system out there, especially for families. Nintendo definitely hit a home run with this system - kids aged 4 to 99 really enjoy it. If you haven't tried Guitar Hero - you must! It's great. But, it is time for Nintendo to ramp up production, there are a lot more people who want to buy them.
Principissa on 2008-02-14:
Pirate you are absolutely right! But really you can't play a game as a family on the 360 and you can on the Wii. That's the only reason we bought it.
cherp, I cannot wait to get my hands on guitar hero! I am literally counting the seconds til my birthday!

Wii is hands down the best gaming system for playability for folks of all ages. Graphics and gaming performance it is probably in last place.

I have both an XBox and a Wii. The Wii is plugged in on our big screen where we watch TV (and play the Wii) more often... and Xbox is downstairs and rarely used...

Guitar Hero is a great game, but we also have Rock Band, which is very similar and comparable except Rock Band you can do vocals, bass and drums too. Having both I'd recommend the later if you were only looking to purchase one. That being said though, I don't think Rock Band is available for the Wii just yet.

Steve, I'm a big GTA fan. Incredible amount of programming they put into those. You can play one of them for months.

Halo was always popular on Xbox. Do they make anything like that for Wii?
Slimjim on 2008-02-14:
Isn't Halo exclusive to X-box? I didn't think you could even get it for PS systems.
Sparticus on 2008-02-14:
I think so Slim. Halo is pretty much the only game I play on Xbox... but I let my subscription expire for online play over a year ago. Too bad they charge for it... Microsoft screwed that one up... I would still be playing if I didn't have to pay...

Rock band rules! except that I suck at the drums, but that's not the games fault! I good family game, if you have XBox is Fuzion Frenzy. kind of hardt o find, because its old, but we like it. may be hard for "little" kids. Good for parties too! especially if there are "adult beverages" involved!!

I know, it's insane! I work at a store (something like a super Walmart, but not) and several times every day we get calls asking if we have any Wii's in stock. We hardly ever do! And when we DO get them in, they send like 4 at a time, and they're gone like that *snaps fingers*. I understand the whole "keep supply low to keep demand up" thing, but if Nintendo wanted to make MORE money, all they'd have to do is have these game systems available, and they'd sell TONS more!!
