Nintendo Unlocked

Status: Acknowledged
by on ‎07-29-2013 11:46 PM

This is getting a little bit irritating, but 99.9% of the titles for Gamer's Club Unlocked happen to be for 360 and PS3. Sadly, Nintendo titles tend to be left out of this promotion and makes this membership useless if they don't buy 360 or PS3 games. Adding more Nintendo games and extending the promotion to handheld games would boost sales and spread to a bigger audience. Extending it to the 3DS could be a great idea. I know the games cost less, so the promotion could potentially be lowered to $10.


Suggestions: Wii U
Super Smash Bros 4

Mario Kart 8

Mario 3D World

Wonderful 101

Sonic Lost World

Donkey Kong Tropical Breeze

Bayonetta 2



Suggestions: 3DS

Sonic Lost World

Super Smash Bros 4

Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Yoshi's Island

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team



Adding 3DS or Wii U titles to the mix would be enough to make me subscribe. I know a lot of others would too if Nintendo games were added.

I did hear back on this and basically it comes down to we will never be able to give a definitive answer on this one. It's completely possible we do add Nintendo titles to this promotion and then at a later date we might remove Nintendo titles from the promotion. In addition, for competitive reasons we would never be able to say what would be added to this promotion prior to those items being added; this of course means you would know once they were added.

I think it has to do with Nintendo titles selling very well to begin with, so less incentive to do a promotion for them. I voted for your ideax though.

I'm sure our decision is based on the amount of titles sold per platform, but I would like to hear from other Nintendo users if they would like to see this happen. Remember to vote for an idea if you like it.

All gamers need to be included in all promos unless the companies themselves say no

@HTZ - But it also brings customers to Bestbuy. Why bother buying at Bestbuy if I can get a Target discount or some other promotion at another store? Also, if that was the case, why are we getting games like Grand Theft Auto 5 as a $20 promotion?




Titles sold as in good sales or bad sales?

@Autosaver, I do not work for the team that would make these decisions. Because of this any response by me is merely a guess. My best guess is both positive and negative sales results on existing titles can result in that particular title becoming part of a specific promotion.

Voted up. while i love my GCU subscription the "Victory Can Be Yours!" $20 back promotion part of it is completely worthless to me as it stands now. i have a PS3 but none of the current titles in this promotion interests me. i'm more of a Nintendo guy and 90%-95% of my gaming purchases are Nintendo titles.


I always buy the new Nintendo releases but not without them either being on sale or in a special buy x get x free deal. if these new Nintendo games were apart of this $20 back promotion i'd be all over them day 1 each time. count me in as well as someone who wants to see this happen, especially for all of the titles provided in the OP! Smiley Happy. c'mon Best Buy.. MAKE IT HAPPEN! Smiley Happy.

I fully agree with this suggestion. As a hardcore gamer I love several of the 3DS games...I just haven't had the time/money to go and get a PS3/360 yet so I am stuck with these games really.

I want to preorder Watch_dogs, the same exact game that comes out for every other system, for my WiiU receive the same $10 certificate like every other customer. I only play Nintendo games so for $120 I expect a bit more fairness.

I have forwarded this onto the appropriate business team.

@Autosaver, I did hear back on this and I need additional clarification from you. Are you referring to the promotion we run where a customer would get $10 off for specific Xbox or PlayStation titles? If so, this promotion is not tied to a Gamers Club Unlocked membership. From what I can tell the Gamers Club Unlocked promotions can be used on any new title regardless of platform.
