Nintendo's Digital Future

It's obvious Nintendo is trying to build out a solid digital platform. Does this include free to play games and downloadable content? (3DS, Casual games, Nintendo, Wii U)

It seems pretty obvious Nintendo would go the route of free to play and DLC. Like the article says, I think Nintendo could possibly offer some great options for f2p and dlc, but I just hope they don't do it halfheartedly like their past online initiatives.

I think Nintendo finally understands that online gaming and an online infrastructure is necessary if they want to compete with Microsoft/Sony. If they would do something about their atrocious account system, I think they would be on there way to providing gamers with good online system.

well they did say that there would be an account system later on, i just hope it doesnt really take much for them to do it. Especially now that they really seem to be pushing it with their eshop content/indie devs/VC

The author seems completely oblivious to the fact that the 3DS has had unpaid DLC for a long time and paid DLC for a few months now.

If they sold the digital versions of retail games at a lower price, like Steam, then it could work wonders, and provide great incentive for a digital purchase, being how digital sales make more money for developers.
