Isn't the real entry barrier getting Nintendo to accept your game? Unless they're about to massively lower their standards...

right, but there was a time nintendo wouldn't even look at your game if you were a small indie team and not just anyone could get a devkit, even if they had the money. nintendo is really conservative about this.

Yeah met an indie team from Mexico last year at GDC who couldn't even get a Dev kit for WiiU.

My indie team got a dev kit with relatively little fanfare a few years ago, maybe things changed as the program wrapped up.
