Sharpening a divide between the version of the games industry they like and the version in which they don't want to participate, Nintendo has stated that it doesn't want to work with "garage" developers.

The very people responsible for many of the good and many more of the godawful games on the iPhone and other amateur-friendly gaming platforms are not people Nintendo wants to work with to create and sell video games.

"I would separate out the true independent developer vs. the hobbyist," Nintendo of America president Fils-Aime told Gamasutra's Chris Morris during a recently published interview. "We are absolutely reaching out to the independent developer."
