Hudson brings Playfirst titles to WiiWare
Hudson has signed a deal with Playfirst, who is the publisher of many games for the Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network, to bring some of their games to the WiiWare section of the Wii Shop Channel.
“PlayFirst is a leader in the casual games space and shares Hudson’s goal of delivering top quality entertainment to a broad audience of players. Top casual games such as Diner Dash that have a wide appeal are driving a new era in console gaming. PlayFirst’s portfolio combines the best in casual games with lovable characters, immersive storylines and incredibly fun gameplay – making them well suited for the fast-growing and increasingly mass market audience of digital download service users.” - Hudson Entertainment president and CEO John Greiner
Just so you guys know, Go Nintendo is saying that WiiWare is a new channel, but they are wrong. According to everything Nintendo has said so far, WiiWare is not a new channel, but a part of the Wii Shop Channel. In fact, if you go to the Wii Shop Channel right now, you'll see a section called Wii Ware and it has 2 channels currently. I don't know why they are mis-reporting this, and doing so often. I'll have to try and contact them and let them know.
