Another Country Gets Club Nintendo

Congratulations, Australia. Your long, long, nigh-on-insufferable wait for a Club Nintendo of your very own is at an end. The redemption website launched today, offering a grand total of... five items.

Yup. Five. Count 'em! One. Two. Three. Four. Five. There's a couple of DS holder things, a Mario face towel, a Wii Remote box and the Game & Watch collection. No prizes for guessing which of that lot is going to hit "sold out" status first.

That's all that could be scraped together in nearly 12 months? And Nintendo wonders why PAL customers cluck their tongues.

    Just followed the link to the new Club Nintendo website only to discover that it wouldn't let me sign in with my old account.

    So I re-register and start registering my codes.

    Register Super Smash Bros. Brawl - ok.

    Register Mario Kart Wii - forgot I threw out the code coz I thought I didn't need it anymore.

    Damn you Nintendo Arrrrgh!

    I've still got the confirmation E-Mail from when I bought Mario Kart and registered my code on launch day. Is there anything I can do about it, or are my stars points lost forever.
