Nintendo reportedly offering app developers conversion software to stimulate ports on Wii U

Nintendo hopes smartphone software will help spur console sales, which will in turn lead to an increase in popular game titles for them, the sources said. (Wii U)

seems like a logical choice to port. They could integrate it to miiverse and facebook.

The gamepad screen is just as ideal to use for the control like people use smartphones and other tablets.

If this were to come to wii-u, those who have friends on miiverse can request lives and unlock other areas like people do now.

The title let me to believe that they were offering an app for lazy idiots like EA to produce good ports on the Wii U, but this isn't bad either.

Given the reported low cost of putting stuff on Eshop, this surely makes it a no brainer for folks making games on IOS/android to port to WiiU. This means the potential library of games coming to eshop is massive. Nice move Nintendo.
I knew Nintendo would take this approach the second I put the Gamepad in my hands. Glad to see their doing this sooner rather than later.

It's still a home console, without some sort of remote play (wifi), what's the point? Had there been remote play, I would have bought one just for NBA 2k13 alone.

old ports maybe, but I think most developers are moving onto next gen now.

What next gen are you talking about? They're talking about smartphones. I hope you're just a troll that can't read or my new phone is out of date.

if executed properly, it would work nicely.. Only if u can use the buttons though.. A lot of smartphone games use multi touch which wii u doesnt have but if u can use the buttons, the games would end up way better
