What this potentially means is that Nintendo is lightening up its attitude towards smaller indie developers, currently making great games and applications for browsers and smart phones. If this is truly the case, I can imagine that allot of these developers would be curious enough or who have been brought up on Nintendo classics to bring their own games over to the Wii U, myself included! It is also worth noting Nintendo usage of ‘applications’ in addition to games. Will we see a big push from Nintendo to get non-game apps found mostly on phones and not game consoles over to the Wii U as a unique deferential from the competition, taking full advantage of its touch screen control.
