Nintendo?

I wish nintendo would make some Ipod touch/ iphone apps! I know apple is kind of a rival of nintendo, but if they made a mario app, donkey kong app, etc., they could have more popularity and more $$$. Come on nintendo!

OMG. Double Rainbow!

I wish they'd port the Super Mario series for XLA. It's a much more lethal option.

we did some nintendo games - they just sent us a cease-n-decist.

they show now intention of doing anything on the iphone/ipod touch - not even licensing their brand for other developers to share royalties with them. their focus is on doing nothing on iphone/ipod touch so that everyone buys the nintendo ds instead - what they consider a real mobile gaming console.

nintendo could make money from licensing; but, whats a few million when their turn over is in the billions - whats big cash for some is small fry for them; not even worth hiring lawyers to write up any agreements.

nintendo have game and watch games for nintendo ds - but, i would love them to compare them to the iphone/ipod touch versions we created; we received a 92% retro rating in retro gamer magazine.. so much for homebrew/indie dev.

Maybe Nintendo will come out with their own iPhone like device in the future with their own App store.
