No office required: Nintendo explains new rules that make indies much more welcome

Nintendo hasn't actually kept smaller developers in a warm embrace for the past few years, but this interview with Dan Adelman explains how Nintendo has changed its rules and policies to bring more diverse and interesting developers and games to the Nintendo consoles. It's an interesting read, and all the changes seem like they're for the better.

I spoke with Sony about their own rules being loosened to attract smaller developers, and it's very cool that this has become a trend. Both Sony and Nintendo are moving in the right direction here, and we'll have more from Sony later. Your move, Microsoft.
