If you've been planning on taking up Nintendo's DSi points offer, you better hurry! The clock is ticking, time is of the essence, not much time left, don't wait any longer! For those of you wondering what the heck I'm talking about, I'm talking about Nintendo's offer to give ANYONE who buys a Nintendo DSi 1,000 Nintendo DSi points! These points act as money to buy things from the DSi store, i.e., this gives you free games and apps! And the only money out of your pocket is the money you spent on getting your DSi. You can also buy DSi Point cards, $10 for 1,000 points and $19.99 for 2,000, sold everywhere. Luckily though, you can save up your points for as lon as you want. (They don't expire!) Keep reading for the press release and a few more details.
