non transferable points

Why must Nintendo be so uptight and frigid in the way they do things? First they remove region compatibility with downloaded software for the upcoming DSi, and now we learn that Wii Points, digital currency for the Wii platform cannot be transferred to Nintendo Points that is meant for the DSi. This is a bummer since there are people out there who have not touched their Wii Points in months due to many factors (uninteresting games, being too busy in real life, etc) who might want to check out the DSi when it is released. You will be able to purchase Nintendo Points cards in 1,000, 3,000 and 5,000 denominations, where individual titles will be priced at 200, 500 or 800 points. According to Nintendo, the non-transferable policy is there because Nintendo does not have a centralized bank system despite all the money they’re raking in this generation.
