British developer Team 17 is planning on working with Nintendo's WiiWare service. Team 17 studio director Martyn Brown has spoken to GamesIndustry on the importance of downloadable games, and how the industry is quickly moving towards virtual gaming.
Brown also expresses his concerns about Nintendo's online strategies, and despite the challenges developing for the Wii and WiiWare creates, he has confirmed that the studio are planning titles for Nintendo's download service.
"I think there's a lack of maturity on the Nintendo side - there are, what, 30 or 40 million Wiis out there, but I'm not quite sure how many users are connected. My theory on Nintendo in that because of the way they handle online gaming as a number, they're two steps away from social interaction - and the shopping experience isn't so great, either."
"I think they know they've got to get a presence there because that's the way it's going"
Anyone for Wiiorms on WiiWare?
