Nintendo relying on 'integrity' of 3DS devs

Miyamoto talks about porting to the 3DS

Miyamoto has said that Nintendo is relying on the 'integrity' of developers when it comes to porting games to the 3DS.

When asked about concerns regarding rush-job ports from the PS2 and Wii to the 3DS, Miyamoto placed the responsibility entirely on the developer.

"I think we just have to rely on the integrity of the developers and the products that they're making."

As ever Miyamoto remained optimistic about 3DS content and said he thinks companies will attempt to match the 3DS with the games that best suit it.

"I think that a lot of companies will be looking at what properties they have so that they may be able to take advantage of that, and even we're looking at that as well, in terms of games like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D or Star Fox 64," he said.

While its optimism is admirable history shows games companies aren't always as idealistic as we hope and want them to be. Perhaps Nintendo needs to take more direct steps to control quality, Nintendo Seal of Approval anyone?
