that's not good at all, but did they say what the download cap is? cause I remember Super Meat Boy devs having only 80mbs for the Wii so I hope it's not capped off on here...

Why wouldn't that be good. Point systems are dumb.

And what does that SMB comment have to do with this?

what if I don't have a credit card available? How am I supposed to get what I want? and as for SMB, I'm referring to the Store having a mb cap so you can only bring certain games to the store unlike iTunes where you can bring an app that takes up 1GB of space.

If you don't have credit card you can buy Nintendo "gift cards".

Ummm... maybe because of the fact that with point systems you don't pay tax. If you use actual currency in your online store, a tax is required. PSN and iOS games are taxed, but wii shop and xbox live games are not. But, an advantage to having real currency is that you don't have to do math to figure how much something is

Real currency > point systems

I hate the fact that I perpetually have around 300 MS points on my Live account, unable to bring myself to spend them on Indie titles; just saving them for my next purchase, which will still leave me with change.
I hope and pray for the day that I will be able to bring my balance back to zero. But inevitably, some sultry temptress of a game will start the cycle once more...

Really loving the presentation. Previews also state that this has one of the best examples of 3D.

Also the 3DS craziness has just begun:
