Does 10% off digital purchases mean digital downloads will be the same price as retail?
Worse than the Vita's solution if true.

Easy to decode. Nintendo Network Premium is part of the package with the black console (from the look of it, maybe paid for separately), digital downloads are 10% cheaper and you get more Club Nintendo points for your purchases. Will only be available for the first 2 years.

yeah, premium wii u bundle is the black one, you get 500 points if you use this or whatever. there was a 500 with points on the screen :D

Edit: Oh, it's club nintendo points, nice.

Edit2: What does he mean with 10 percent back? for the eShop then or 10% less to pay?

Edit3: it was yen? so pay 500 yen once and use it till December 2014? oh, per month, okay :D

It had 500 yen up there, so that's probably a per month cost.

Don't care about the stands, and have no idea if would be purchasing enough digital download stuff to make it worth it. Nintendo dipping their toes in the pool, seems like, as opposed to jumping all in to the paid network service area.

It looks like a combination of PS+ and the 3DS ambassador program. A time-limited program for people who buy the premium pack, that expires in on 12/2014. It doesn't seem like something you can opt into, at least from what we know so far.

All this is, is an extra thing for people who buy the premium pack. If you buy a game from the store, you get 10% the price in points and then can exchange that for nintendo store bux.

Should probably not trust the 7-11 security cameras quite so much
It's a loyalty scheme for purchasers of the Premium SKU. It's not a Live Gold/PS+ equivalent.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free
Don't try to defend yourself, there was no reason to make this thread with the information you had.

Come on wtf... he updated the opening post 1 minute after starting the thread, why so defensive.. ?
 
Wow, you guys. Bolding the following.

Nintendo Network Plus is a program for people who pick up the "premium" Wii U package. It's nothing you pay for. It's simply a loyalty program that connects with Nintendo Network allowing you to earn 10% back on purchases as a thank you.

It's not a paid online service.

REPEAT. IT'S NOT A PAID ONLINE SERVICE.

EDIT:

FULL CLARIFICATION FROM SPRSK:

works for Gamestop (lol)
Going by the ACTUAL info for this thing, it didn't even warrant a new thread, lol. The pricing and tiers is more important

EDIT: It also rewards "points" for purchases. I'm assuming this means bonus Club Nintendo points similar to what happened with NSMB2.

Whoah, WHOAH!!!!

Premium version here I come.

Oh! That's pretty cool. I'll be purchasing a lot of Wii U E-Shop titles so this will help.
 
Lol at the translations.

I think it says you can trade in your credits from 500+ points and up. Not 500 points per month fee. So if you get 10% back but the rewards total is in 500 point increments. Similar to how Credit Cards lets you redeem cash back at $50 increments.

Hope that is available post-launch, too. Seems pretty good, if you were going to get the Black Wii U, anyways.
