Looks like we have some numbers coming in for indie developers signing up for the Xbox One. For more info on that, click here – right around 70 developers. This isn’t bad, unless you compare it to the list of developers for the Wii U. See this awesome article by Nintendo Enthusiast for a list of upcoming indie games (with even more on the way!) – http://nintendoenthusiast.com/article/120-upcoming-wii-u-games-indie/
This is a really good market for Nintendo, as it 1) builds “street cred” with all these up-and-coming developers, 2) initiates creativity within competition, and 3) will gain loyalty from these developers. This can benefit Nintendo in the long run, especially the latter point, if one or more of these developers gather any kind of popular momentum.
Well done, Nintendo, for giving tools to the “little guys!”
