In what could be read as a positive sign for free to play haters, Nintendo has talked a bit about pricing strategies for upcoming mobile games during a recent shareholders meeting.
Iwata then went into more detail about what he sees as the social issue of F2P games psychologically manipulating players and acknowledged that the profits from these kind of games come from “whales” rather than from the majority of players. Although companies in Japan can make quite a bit of profit by focusing on whales, Iwata doesn’t believe that the same approach would be embraced by people around the world.
Touch Arcade has the details.
