Reaction: Gunman Clive Provides a Positive Example of eShop Success

The video game industry is in the middle of, arguably, its most unstable period — the landscape is evolving almost too quickly to track. Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft are currently sticking to the course as constants, in general maintaining well-worn business practices while attempting to adjust to new challenges. The biggest impact on current gaming is arguably from downloads, which is an area becoming more varied as time passes — we have the iOS and Google Play marketplaces, with a variety of phones, tablets, TV and handheld consoles all attempting to grab a share of those enormous user-bases.

Nintendo Life looks at today's revelation that Bertil Hörberg's Gunman Clive has performed as well on the 3DS eShop as iOS, and how Nintendo's download game model can still have a place for indie developers. (3DS, Gunman Clive, Industry, Nintendo)
