Reggie clarifies 'garage dev' comments

Nintendo has further clarified how it chooses to partner with the new generation of independent game creators, following the firm’s divisive claim that it wouldn’t be working with ‘garage’ developers.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told Joystiq that its new 3DS system is not catered for unproven talent, and advised inexperienced indies to cut their teeth on other systems.

"We've been clear that we want to work with independent developers who understand this business, who have experience in this business," Fils-Aime said.

Fils-Aime’s new claim comes days after his previous suggestion that Nintendo “is not looking to do business today with the garage developer”.
