One of Nintendo’s forgotten failures is the Virtual Boy, which flopped horrendously at retail. However, that doesn’t mean Nintendo has given up on Virtual Reality. With Sony taking a crack at it and the Oculus Rift getting attention, Nintendo is deciding to relook at the viability of virtual reality.

“For us, it’s all about fun gameplay. That’s what we want. We want a fun, compelling experience. Right now, the (Virtual Reality) technology isn’t quite there yet, in our view. Certainly, it’s something we’re looking at. We look at a wide range of technologies. When it’s there and enables a fun experience, we’ll be there, too.” — Reggie FIls-Aime

I am the current Editor-in-Chief of Zelda Informer and have been running the show here since July 16th, 2008. I've actually been running Zelda Fan sites since 1998, so I've been in this "industry" for roughly 16 years. I'm 28 years old and have two kids, one biological, the other more of a step daughter (not legally yet, but practically). I live with my girlfriend and our two kids (Aiden, age 1 and half, Melody age 3 and half). I'm attending college to create video games web applications, and I naturally love Nintendo (I run a Zeld a website after all!). For those curious, I currently own a Wii U, Xbox One, 3DS, PlayStation 3, and a gaming PC (and a gaming capable laptop too!). I do plan to eventually get a PlayStation 4, likely when more comes out I am interested in playing on the system. I do play the Wii U more than any other system I own.
