Nintendo with VR?

With Sony unveiling Morpheus and Microsoft rumored to have something similar (not to mention occulus rift) Do you think Nintendo will jump on this? Maybe for their next console?

Seeing how late they were to the HD market, I'd say their next console will be in some way VR.

Given if VR even takes off at all.

My sig will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did.

Nintendo did it first, it just failed to catch on. Virtual Boy says hi :)

That was stereoscopic 3d. Nothing virtual reality about it.

The Virtual Boy (バーチャルボーイ Bācharu Bōi?) (Originally known as VR-32.) is a table-top video game console developed and manufactured by Nintendo. It was marketed as the first "portable" video game console capable of displaying "true 3D graphics" out of the box, in the form of virtual reality.

From Wiki. Please note the very end of it. While not like todays VR it still was the first step in that direction.

I don't think so, they are working on something different.

...as I said at the beginning of the presentation today, Nintendo is a company that sees the true value of entertainment lies in its individuality. Following others into the exceedingly crowded market of mobile applications or the market of wearable technology that is expected to become increasingly competitive and fighting with brute force is not our way of doing business. Yet again, it is our intention to go into a new blue ocean.
With that said, we wish to achieve an integrated hardware-software platform business that, instead of providing mobile or wearable features, will be characterized by a new area of what we like to call “non-wearable” technology.

At this point to refer to the Virtual Boy as Virtual Reality is just absurd. It was 3D images, nothing more. Think of a rudimentary 3DS.

Just like 3D, online, downloadable games etc... Nintendo tried it years before they took off.

Spinoffs don't count. Unless its a Nintendo game.

That would be the same as saying pong was not the first home gaming system. Just because it isn't at todays level doesn't make it any less VR then it was. Hell its model number was VR-32
