Alright, anyone else think this idea is ridiculous? Honetly, Nintendo isn't exactly trying to to win my good side over.

Seems like a silly idea to me. Can't they keep things simple any more?

Man, I have no idea why things can't just be simple....Buy a console, and then Buy a game. *first, you must place five international calls to these totally random numbers, place X amount of currency in this cayman account, give us your credit card number, and we will get back to you about that game you wanted*

Why not just keep it simple though. Why introduce another barrier into the already painful overseas shipping process.

Sounds like a great idea. It was said it may be used for the Virtual Console, and what if I don't have a credit card or want to use one? Pre-paid cards seem really simple to me. I don't see any complication.

It may be great for the locals but not for me. See I usually order my system components overseas since you can't get the best stuff here. Naturally I have to pay shipping fees for everything I order. Imagine paying shipping fees for a method of payment that could easily be done though credit card and without any fees to give.
