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
