Interesting. Mobiclip does codec work for Sony, Apple and others too, not just Nintendo. So does this make Nintendo a service provider of the codecs or will they now be exclusive to Nintendo?

Information on their products seems to have gone from their website, so I suspect this is a comparable situation to SN?
