Ease of use overrated, Nintendo Points non-transferrable between Wii and DSi

Well, that’s not entirely true. Nintendo has provided customers with a handy, easy-to-use chart. Unfortunately, it comes inextricably tied to news that, in spite of their new, console-free name, Nintendo Points will not transfer between the two most recent additions to Nintendo’s pillar collection.

According to Siliconera, download-seekers will have to dedicate each Nintendo Point card they purchase to a single console. No back-and-forth.

On the bright side, though, the DSi is still a ways off from journeying to the West, so there’s always the outside chance that Nintendo might come down with a terrible case of sanity and change this perplexing policy.

We can only hope.
