Congratulations, Australia. Your long, long, nigh-on-insufferable wait for a Club Nintendo of your very own is at an end. The redemption website launched today, offering a grand total of...five items.

Yup. Five. Count 'em! One. Two. Three. Four. Five. There's a couple of DS holder things, a Mario face towel, a Wii Remote box and the Game & Watch collection. No prizes for guessing which of that lot is going to hit "sold out" status first.

That's all that could be scraped together in nearly 12 months? And Nintendo wonders why PAL customers cluck their tongues.
