I hope Nintendo embraces homebrew with Cafe.

With reports swirling around that the controller is essentially a tablet built for gaming, I get the impression that Nintendo's going to try to tap into the app market. This makes sense from a business perspective; microtransactions are a big thing these days.

But there's another opportunity here - if the big N does decide to offer small-scale applications for reduced prices, then they'd have incentive to provide the ability for independent developers to get a piece of the pie. After all, small-time devs are a large part of what drives the success of the Android app market as well as Apple's.

Of course, realistically speaking, there would have to be an approval process so that we wouldn't end up with a bunch of inappropriate apps.
$50 says that I don't have a gambling problem.

Or better yet - maybe Nintendo will actually make a good operating system for this console.
