In an investor call earlier this week, Guillemot said of Project CafÃ© “The platform that Nintendo is coming with is really a fantastic platform.” Guillemot adds, “We think that it will be extremely successful,” before going on to say, “What we see is that we will be able to leverage a lot of the work we do for the Xbox 360 and PS3 when we create games for the platform.”
What does this all mean to your average Nintendo console owner? For one, it seems as if the Xbox 360 and PS3 won’t be the only consoles to get future Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell titles once Project CafÃ© arrives. If porting Xbox 360 and PS3 games to Project CafÃ© isn’t too difficult, hopefully this will start a trend with other developers to send their titles Nintendo’s way (Portal 3 on Project CafÃ© anyone?)
Here’s hoping that Project CafÃ© isn’t swamped with re-releases upon it’s arrival, but I’ve been around enough console launches to know better.
