The modding community has been growing steadily ever since the dawn of PC gaming, but only in recent years has the idea of paying for user-created content become a reality.

Yet another big publisher is steering clear of the Wii U

This isn’t as big a deal for Nintendo as you might think because neither Skyrim nor Fallout 3 ever released on the original Wii. All the same, Nintendo could really use a lot more help from developers on the Wii U, especially since game publishing giant EA has announced it has no plans to bring its next generation of games to the console.
