  1. In the past, many have accused Nintendo of not knowing how to effectively utilize the online portion of their consoles. Although they still have some issues to work out, such as marketplace simplification, they are doing better. Case in point, they recently started a promotion to offer $30 of credit to those who bought Fire Emblem Awakening and Shin Megami Tensei IV. Now there's a new promotion underway for Wii U owners, although it might not sound as sweet. Nintendo is attempting to up the amount of digital purchases on the home platform by saying if you put at least $50 of eShop credit then you'll be rewarded. At $50, they add $5 to the account. At $100, you get $10. If you were already planning to update your balance with $50 or more then definitely take advantage of this! All you have to do is add funds and Nintendo will send out the credit on August 2nd. As such, you only have until July 28th to load up the eShop balance.
  2. Starting yesterday, the word got out that Sony was sending messages to certain customers. Basically, they were sent to some users so far with $10 in credit to be spent on the PlayStation Store. There has been no announced promotion or contests as of late so it seems something done simply to encourage more spending on the store. Here is what the message sent from Sony says, courtesy of NeoGAF: "Thank you for being a loyal customer and fan of PlayStation Network. As a token of our appreciation, we've sent you $10.00 to spend on the PlayStation Store." There are many in North America who have confirmed getting the credit for their account. Does it only reach people with PS Plus or is it possible any PSN user can be flagged to receive it? These details are currently unclear especially when not everyone with Plus has gotten credit. Regardless, it's a nice way to surprise some customers. Did you get the $10 credit?

    Anodyne The Pirate Bay Promo

    From the album: Marcus's Album

  4. If you've been looking to buy a 3DS XL system then this may be just the incentive you need. Today, Nintendo announced a promotion that grants those who register a 3DS XL system (and specific game) are given another game for free. There are a few details involved, but they're not complex. So, let's say you register your shiny new handheld today. After that, you have until April 30th to register either of these games: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. These both come out on March 24th, which is part of why the registration period is so long. Both games can be registered whether you buy them in store or get them through the eShop. With one game and system registered, you will then be able to nab one of these five games at no cost: Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone (Review) Freakyforms Deluxe Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask (Review) Star Fox 64 3D Super Mario 3D Land All of the available titles will be given as eShop downloads. Of course, you must be a Club Nintendo member to be able to register and claim rewards. Which do you think is the best game of the available five?

    Beats Trellis Goes Free on Vita

    As the weeks wind down we are coming closer to the end of Sony's PlayStation Mobile promotion. If you haven't been picking up the free, small games offered so far then maybe their next game will be the one you grab. Or not, considering this is another music-based app such as Beats Slider before it. Well, it's not actually fair to call it a rhythm game. That's because Beats Trellis is more of a creation application than anything else. With the use of this app you can can make a variety of beats using instrument sounds, pitch, loop, and other features. That's all there is to it but those who enjoy mucking around with music may find it a fun time waster. Beats Trellis is free from now (or at least when the store updates) until next week. Vita users just need to get into the Shop and check the PS Mobile section for it. Or, if you own a PS Certified device you can grab the free app too.

    Wii U Digital Deluxe Promotion is Now Live

    You may recall that before the Wii U launched Nintendo shared information about a Digital Deluxe Promotion. This was announced as a bonus for those who pick up the more expensive of the Wii U systems. Deluxe owners would then be rewarded with points on every digital purchase they make with the system. Although it didn't go live at launch, a few weeks later it is now available. In order to use it, you must log in with your Nintendo Network ID and password and from there can begin getting points back for digital purchases you make on the system. However, the purchases must be Wii U eShop ones, not 3DS purchases or even Wii Shop Channel items access through the Wii U, so keep that in mind. Users will get 10% of an eShop game's value back in points. For example, if you were to buy a $59 game digitally, you would get 599 coins back. Regardless of what you buy, once you get to 500 points they can be exchanged for $5 of eShop credit. This promotion won't last forever, but you have a while, as points can be received from purchases all the way until December 2014.
  7. Anyone who has looked at the Playstation store by now probably knows about Sony's most recent promotion in October - spend one hundred dollars and get twenty back in November. Sounds like a pretty decent deal if you were going to spend a hundred anyways, right? Well, after a lot of contest-entering and haggling with other people on trading forums, I actually managed to reach one hundred dollars spent on the Playstation store. Or did I? I might have reached the hundred dollars, but I certainly didn't spend it all. While that might not make sense to you, let me explain the rules to the promotion. You have to spend at least $100 in total. You can't put $100 in your account and then just get $20 in November. The reason this matters is after all of my purchases were said and done, I spent exactly $99.98. Two cents short of the mark. Of course, I'm not mad at Sony or anybody because of this, so please don't think I'm blaming them for anything. I was going to spend the money either way, I just can't help but laugh when I look at what is left in my PSN wallet. The only way it could be any less is if it was one penny. This is a fact. The reason I'm two cents short is because of the way things are priced on the Playstation store. I'm sure you've noticed that most downloadable titles go for an average of $9.99 or $14.99 when they're at full price. Things get a little trickier when you start getting into PSN+ discounts, but it stays pretty much the same throughout. I've been reading the comment sections of the Playstation Blog and other such sites and I've found two common situations among people trying to pass over the $100 mark with their Playstation Store purchases. The first being my situation of missing the $100 limit by just two cents. The second problem being that there isn't any real way to see how much money you've spent. Sure, it's pretty easy to do the math to see just how far off you might be from reaching the goal, but you have to remember that the people out there who are short by two cents think they've reached the goal. In their minds, they're already guaranteed the $20 bonus next month so they have no reason to check and make sure they've actually spent the $100 necessary. They're in for a rude awakening when they find out later this month that they don't have the $20 emailed to them, but it isn't just going to affect them. Your average forum poster When something involving free money goes awry, the first thing people are most likely to do is complain. Of course, the people who are most likely to complain didn't actually fulfill the requirements needed to get said free money, but that won't stop them from filling the Playstation blog with their less-than-happy messages. In the end, all of this will just pass by and the next promotion will start just like any other. If there's any reason for me writing this article, it is just to get the word out that you should probably go over your emailed receipts from your Playstation store purchases. You just might have missed the mark too. As always, thank you for reading. Be sure to check you've actually spent over $100 in October!
