Hi,

I'm currently wanting to sign up as a Wii U developer. However, I'm stuck at the Address section of the form because It's one of my most sensitive bits of information to give out, even to big companies like Nintendo!

Should I fill it in, guys? I don't want a Nintendo employee just randomly knocking on my door one day! :lol:

Do you plan on stealing or leaking code? If no put your real info, signing up for that is serious and you can get in legal trouble for abusing/leaking resources.

No, I don't plan to steal anything. :rofl2:
Also, I don't own a mobile (I only have a tablet) so what should I do there? Should I email them?

I'm guessing it's required? Try using whatever your phone number is, if it's a landline or whatnot. If that's not possible, try getting google voice (Not sure if it's available where you live, though).

If that's not an option, get a prepaid phone for as cheap as humanly possible. We have super cheapo phones and plans that are basically 80 bucks a year here in the states, and hopefully you have something similar where you live.

Yeah, the UK sells dirt-cheap phones, for around £15-30! In fact, I remember having a lime-green Nokia phone in my bedside cabinet that's been there for months, so I've practically answered my own question, there! ;)

So yeah, I've now filled in all the fields except for the phone number. Like @osaka35 said, I will posibbly either use my old phone, or I will use Google Voice (because it was available for my region).

Thanks, guys! :)

Is it really financially a good plan to go with? From what I read a Wii U Dev Kit costs around £3k to £5k so for a dying console that's possibly going to be phased out in 2017 you might as well just wait and develop games for Steam/Smartphones. One last thing, isn't Xbox One retail units open for dev use also?

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages
    Gift
  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
