REPORT: Nintendo Looking For Media Partners For Wii U

Could Nintendo be looking to emulate Microsoft? Well a recent article from AdWeek seems to think so, with the site's sources reporting that the Big N is actively seeking partnerships with large media companies, producers and distributors.

The article alleges that Nintendo met with "a select number of top content companies” including multiple cable networks and Web video producers at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month, "focusing on sports and music content".

It's also reported that Nintendo are courting US cable provider Comcast as one potential partner with regard to cable TV distribution, to allow for services similar to those Microsoft currently offers over Xbox LIVE.

This is new ground for Nintendo though, and one source acknowledge that "This is very preliminary. It could go nowhere."

The Wii U is expected to launch at some point between E3 and the end of the year. [via MyNintendoNews]
