Nintendo confirms smartphone apps while restating commitment to games consoles


Nintendo has reiterated its commitment to its strategy of keeping its games exclusive to its own consoles, while acknowledging plans to utilize smartphones and tablets in ways that drive new users to Nintendo hardware. At an investor briefing today, CEO and president Satoru Iwata said that Nintendo will use smart devices to “make connections with customers,” though he ruled out releasing games on those platforms. The Wii Us Nintendo Network ID (NNID) log-in system, which the 3DS portable console only recently started supporting, will also be used across smartphones and tablets. Iwata spoke of the concept of a platform spanning devices, where an NNID would carry over between smartphones, current consoles, and future Nintendo systems, noting that the companys efforts in that regard so far have caused a division with customers.
