As you all know, Nintendo is reaching out to mobile devs with the Wii U. They've made a number of changes with their approach to indie devs. It's obvious that Nintendo wants some of those mobile devs to focus on bringing their content to mobile devices and Wii U. The Japan times commented on this, but also included details from an inside source.

Nintendo hopes smartphone software will help spur console sales, which will in turn lead to an increase in popular game titles for them, the sources said

Is mobile dev support via eShop the key to bringing in new costumers, which will then purchase more traditional software as well? Would you buy a new console because of the digital support?
