I reported earlier in the week that Nintendo seems to really be putting an onus on indie and digital content, and it’s showing. Nintendo has been dreadfully slow to adapt to the 21st century when it comes to its online communities, multiplayer integration, co-op game play and many other things that the other 2 big consoles have been doing for years. Until recently, Nintendo wasn’t as modern as the first Xbox or the PS2. Nintendo is addressing this with a ton of new digital content. This is in edition to their ‘Nindies’ focus that I wrote about here. Nintendo is offering some deep discounts to some of their games online to encourage repeat business. Those sales are listed below.

Read below for more information on their new digital offerings and the full Nintendo Press release. And leave a comment gosh darnit! I’ve added some nice screen shots for you all to have a look at as well, chosen especially for my facebook Nintendo group peeps. If you’re reading Christian, I know you’re watching me pal!

Do you think Nintendo will be able to compete, or at least make their fans happier with their new digital approach?
