Nintendo will offer bigger revenue cuts on digital downloads for the Wii U than other gaming platform providers, according to a report.

A source “working for a European developer” told Wii U Daily that the console giant is offering insane incentives to publishers to sell on its new eShop.

He said that Nintendo learned from the WiiWare, building a new platform that is perfect for indie developers.

“They’re offering insane incentives for publishers to sell retail games as downloads on the console,” he said. “You’d be stupid not to take advantage of it and go retail box-only. The new platform is perfect for indie devs, it’s a whole different ball game than WiiWare. They’ve learned a lot from that mess."
