So the upcoming biggest innovation in years.., and Nintendo's ignoring it

#1TrueBlue91Posted 3/19/2014 12:35:07 PM
They were happy to support the motion control Wiimote fad, and plonk a screen onto a controller because "teh innovation!", but virtual reality? Nope, they're not interested. There's the Occulus Rift, Sony's announced VR headset, Valve's one, MS's long rumoured one, VR is clearly a major innovation and one of the biggest things to happen to the industry in ages.

If Nintendo honestly wanted to innovate and push the industry forward, why haven't they show any interest in VR? They have billions of dollars to invest, right? Or are they just interested in cashing-in on cheap fads?

It's kinda sad because the Wii mote would work better for VR than a standard controller in my opinion

I want real VR!

VR isn't much of an innovation at this time given you still have to use a controller.

VR is going to be very expensive, especially at first. But on the subject, how do you know that Nintendo is ignoring it? Just because they haven't openly announced that they were looking into it means nothing.

Pretty sure the Wii U isn't powerful enough for VR.

It is a remake, not my fault you people think ports are remakes (but only on Nintendo systems)-Demondog666

Well as much as I personally like that (I don't dig the whole flailing your limbs about crap), Kinect and PS Eye for example could fix that. Still, these are early days.
