Ubisoft - casual audiences will come to 3DS quickly, Nintendo serious about making 3rd parties successful

“Instinctively, it’s easy to assume that the hardcore gamer will be the early adopter to new hardware, and inevitably this will be the case to some extent. But when you consider that millions of consumers have already bought into the DS console family, it’s not difficult to believe that the broader audiences will come quickly to the new 3DS. As such, our PR and marketing approach will reflect the fact that we need to cater for all audiences – both core and mainstream. There is always an expectation that first party will spend large, but in the case of 3DS I genuinely believe that Nintendo will be focusing on ensuring that the overall 3DS platform is a success. So assuming that does happen, then it makes the job of attaching more of our games to the install base so much easier.” - Murray Pannell, Ubisoft

Nintendo and Ubisoft are really buddy-buddy lately. I think it’s gotten to be this way over the past few years. Let’s hope the Big N starts building similar relationships with other third parties from here on out.
