In a recent interview Nintendo America had with Gamasutra, the gaming company mentioned that they don’t want to work with “garage developers.” Obviously poking fun at the plethora of horribly coded and un-fun games that can be found on most mobile app stores, Nintendo only wants their customers to experience top-notch gaming that is usually promised by larger developers in the industry. It could be a good move by the company – by ensuring that whenever a customer spends money on a game for a Nintendo console, they won’t regret it but this narrow-minded selection process could also cause them to miss out on a lot of potentially good games that isn’t made by big named studios. After all, everyone has to start somewhere, including indie developers. But it’s a decision they’ve made and we’ll just have to see how well they do before we make any judgments. Would you like to see games by “garage developers” on the 3DS or do they have enough platforms elsewhere (iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7 etc)?
