Users that are interested in using their My Nintendo Gold Points will should know that 100 gold points is equivalent to $1. Players that decide to make purchases through the eShop will be rewarded back with 5% of their purchase value in Gold Points. Physical purchases will sadly only be rewarded with 1% of the value.

It should be noted that while games with DLC's on the Switch will grant players Gold Points, DLC's on the Wii U or 3DS will not. Additionally and probably most importantly, Gold Points have a one year expiration date on them, counting from the last day in the month from which they were earned.

Jak's love for science, space, and technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
