    Eurogamer reports today that Ubisoft has been talking about its approach to Nintendo’s forthcoming Wii U console, and specifically the possibility of making digital versions of its games available. Ubisoft’s man in charge of digital, Chris Early, told Eurogamer that Ubisoft has learnt its lessons from its involvement in Sony’s PS Vita launch, and is now prepared to make digital versions of its games available at launch, as well as the regular boxed versions for retail stores.

    Could this mean we can expect Assassin's Creed 3 available to download digitally for Wii U at launch?!

    DLCs have already happened in Japan for Fire Emblem: Hero of Light and Shadow for the DSi.
    I would suspect they would bring that to the 3DS and the Wii U

    WAIT WHAT? Why did I not know of this?! Give me your sources! Dx

    ... Oh, topic, right. If Ninty is gonna bring full games up for digital download, then it's 99% likely they won't leave us high and dry with a ****-small internal hard drive. If this is the case, that means DLC is just as likely to have as big of an impact as it does for Sony and Microsod.

    In short, Nintendo is coming through on their promise to make their online experience better. Much better.
