Nintendo has been emphasizing its “digital business” over the past few years, and it sounds like an even greater focus will be placed in this area going forward.
Recently, president Satoru Iwata stated, “It’s important for us to expand our revenue opportunities.”
Means of downloading content, other than the eShop, have been looked at. Nintendo officials have confirmed that a system will launch by year’s end so that users can purchase items from a PC or smartphone.
The company’s statement reads:
“By the end of the year, we will launch a system where you can purchase (content) from your computer or smartphone through strict account management.”
