As time runs short for holiday shopping, consumers on any budget can count on Nintendo's winning lineup of game systems and software for exceptional, affordable gifts to satisfy everyone on their lists. Whether they're rushing to buy for faraway loved ones or gearing up for a big gathering at home, the Wii™ home console and hand-held Nintendo DS™ and Nintendo DSi™ systems put inclusive, value-minded fun within easy reach.

No Downtime? Just Download
Busy holiday consumers don't always have time to comb the malls. By using their Wii or Nintendo DSi systems to visit the Wii Shop Channel or Nintendo DSi Shop, last-minute shoppers have a simple, convenient way to download new and classic games for as little as 500 Wii™ Points or 200 Nintendo DSi Points™. They'll also find free content like the fun Flipnote Studio application and Facebook integration for Nintendo DSi, and the useful Internet Channel for Wii. A Nintendo Points Card™, which makes a great stocking stuffer at a suggested retail price of $19.99, gives loved ones 2,000 Nintendo Points that they can redeem for great games of their own choosing on Wii or Nintendo DSi. They can even download demos of select WiiWare™ titles for zero Wii Points to help decide which ones they like best.

One Game Fits All
Nintendo offers fun, inclusive games that entire families can enjoy together. At a suggested retail price of $49.99, New Super Mario Bros.™ Wii lets as many as four players take part in fast-paced Mario-themed action at the same time, while The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks for Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi packs endless hours of adventure for players young and old at a suggested retail price of $34.99. Wii Sports Resort™ includes 12 resort-themed activities to make everyone's spirits bright, offered at a suggested retail price of $49.99 and packaged with the Wii MotionPlus™ accessory, which brings enhanced precision to games that have been designed for it.

A New Color for a New Year
For the first time, U.S. consumers can purchase black versions of the Wii system's signature controllers. The Black Wii Remote™ controller comes bundled with a matching Wii MotionPlus™ accessory at a suggested retail price of $49.99, while the black Nunchuk™ controller is available separately at a suggested retail price of $19.99. These sharp, affordable add-ons make terrific stocking stuffers for style-conscious Wii fans.

Moving Fitness Forward
Nintendo's Wii Fit™ Pluss delivers an irresistible mix of fitness and fun for people of any age or background with a wealth of new activities along with the original Wii Fit lineup. For the millions of Americans who already own a Wii Balance Board™ accessory, the standalone Wii Fit Plus disc represents a superb value at a suggested retail price of $19.99. Wii Fit Plus with the Wii Balance Board is also available for a suggested retail price of $99.99.

Approach the Holidays with Style
The new Style Savvy™ game for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi systems lets players assume the role of a woman who runs a stylish clothing boutique. As customers visit your store, you have to pick out clothes that make them look good. Style Savvy makes a great stocking stuffer for the fashionista on your shopping list and sells at a suggested retail price of $29.99.
