question about getting funds onto your 3ds

#1Darkstorm16Posted 8/14/2011 8:55:13 AM
I know to download games like The Legend of Zelda Links Awakening you need to use the Nintendo 3ds card you can buy, but can you use the funds from that card and buy dsi games or do you have to buy a dsi card to buy those games.

You can just use a credit card? Some places sell 3DS point cards, those funds can be spent freely in the eShop. No need to buy the cards specified for the DSi.

I read that Nintendo uses the same code system for Wii DSi and 3DS, so you could get any nintendo point card and use that, but I'm more comfortable with my credit card.

No, John, unfortunately we don't have a code for "There's a man in my closet with a gun to my daughter's head." Although we obviously should.

^ No the 3DS only uses 3DS point cards, you have to use either those or a credit card to put money on your 3DS to buy anything. DSi uses the same money

Do 3DS point cards give you POINTS or MONEY?
And do we still have to pay tax if we DL stuff with them?

A) Whether you get points or money is practically irrelevant - it's all stuck on the same system.

2) Tax depends on your local tax laws.

It's money, but it doesn't really matter. You buy in set amounts, and the prices are the same as they were with points, just a penny cheaper.

What stores sell the cards and how much do they cost?
