Wii U Deluxe Digital Promotion detailed

Tuesday, 30th October 2012 19:08 GMT By Jeff Dunn

Nintendo first talked about the Wii U’s “Deluxe Digital Promotion” back when the two SKUs were initially unveiled, but details about the initiative have since been scarce. Today, however, Nintendo has revealed what exactly purchasers of the 32GB, Deluxe version of the Wii U will be getting for their efforts.

As detailed over on Nintendo’s website, any Deluxe Set owner who buys a Wii U game from the Nintendo eShop will receive ten percent of its value back in points. So, if you buy a game for $59.99, you get 599 points in return.

Once those owners accrue 500 total points, they’ll get a code that gives them $5 in Nintendo eShop credit.

The promotion will begin letting players earn points on the Wii U’s launch day, November 18, and run up until the last day of 2014. Points can be swapped for eShop credit up until June 2015. The website to track your Deluxe Digital Promotion purchases itself doesn’t launch until this December, however.

    Is my math off? Spend 500usd in games and get 5usd off? That doesn’t seem right.

    @1 Hey..hey….hey….OG its better than Live ok?? ;) You being serious though? Or are you poking at the cost of the console? I believe its ($5 back for every $60 game purchased). Any discount or sale or rebate is better than nothing when talking digital copies yes?

    I think you get about 600 points per 60 dollar game, but you can only use it in 500 point increments, meaning that you might have as much as 400 points sitting in your account at any time that you can’t use. So it still comes to 10% eventually… That about right?
