leave a comment »

According to Forget The Box Nintendo is apparently approaching software developers and offering them assistance in porting and publishing software from iOS to the Wii U so that it can be played on the Wii U’s touchscreen controller.

Nintendo is also apparently looking to launch a digital e-reader type service where you can download books, magazines, newspapers, comics, and other publications to your Wii U console. These publications would then stream to your Wii U controller’s touch-screen.

Nintendo Not Interested in DLC

leave a comment »

Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime has Told AOL’s Games Blog that Nintendo isn’t interested in First Party Downloadable Content as they wish to make the consumer feel they have bought the full game. Nintendo may add additional downloadable content after launch, but only when it makes sense to for the company to do so and not necessarily for a charge.

“We’re interested in it to the extent that it makes sense to the consumer.”

“I’ve had this conversation with a number of our key developers, and their mentality is, ‘Reggie, when we sell a game, we want the consumer to feel that they’ve had a complete experience.’

“Now, in addition, if we want to make other things available, great, and we’ll look at that. But we’re unwilling to sell a piece of a game upfront and, if you will, force a consumer to buy more later.

“That’s what they don’t want to do, and I completely agree. I think the consumer wants to get, for their money, a complete experience, and then we have opportunities to provide more on top of that.”
