Nintendo Doesn't Want Hobbyists Or "Garage Developers"

There are reality TV shows that revolve around this concept. I love it when there's a game that's found that captures people's imagination, just like that...singer toiling in a factory.

The exception, of course, is that many famous musical artists started as simply "garage bands"... but we know what he means... right?
