Welcome to Gaming After Hours: A freelancing website where future journalist express themselves and get noticed.
It would seem that Nintendo really wants as much publishers to make content on their upcoming Wii U eShop. A European source from an anonymous developer says that Nintendo is actively looking to offer all Wii U retail titles as downloadable titles via the Wii U eShop. Plus Nintendo is offering a much bigger revenue cut then in comparsion to the other platforms offerings
“They’re offering insane incentives for publishers to sell retail games as downloads on the console. You’d be stupid not to take advantage of it and go retail box-only”, he said, adding “The new platform is perfect for indie devs, it’s a whole different ball game than WiiWare. They’ve learned a lot from that mess”.My Nintendo News asked what the “insane incentives” on the Wii U eShop were, “It’s just a much bigger revenue cut that you’d get selling it on any other platform at the moment, plus promotions on the online store. If they [Nintendo] pull it off and it gains traction, it’ll press the other guys [Microsoft and Sony] to give more of the revenue to the publishers. It’s very good for us who make games.”
