Reports have given indications that Nintendo may be offering all of its titles for download for its soon-to-be-released Nintendo Wii U game console.

Apparently the company aims to offer more access to its game titles to game enthusiasts for its upcoming Nintendo Wii U. Currently, the company is offering developers the capability of downloading all the games for the upcoming game console in order to increase its appeal. The source of the report has reportedly been in contact with a developer in Europe who has offered accurate information in connection to the Nintendo Wii U.

The developer reportedly indicated that Nintendo was offering a number of incentives for publishers such as downloading to the console in order to sell its games. The Wii U eShop will reportedly offer the games for downloading.

Nintendo reportedly mentions the eShop on the Nintendo Wii U website as the digital storefront that will become available once the game console enters the market. However it does not give indications that all the games will be available for download through the eShop although it has indicated that users some games for the Nintendo Wii U that are offered through retail outlets will also be available for purchase and download through the eShop.

The absence of a clear-cut digital strategy has been one of the criticisms that Nintendo received in the past. Although the company has reportedly offered Nintendo Wii titles for download and videos can be streamed through Netflix, it still has to offer a digital strategy similar to its competition. However Nintendo has reportedly indicated that digital will be a major component for its strategy for the Nintendo Wii U.

In addition to game play, the company also revealed that YouTube, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, and Netflix will be accessible through the Nintendo Wii U. For the moment the company has not made any statements in connection to the reports on the availability of all the games for download for the game console.
