The Score: Nintendo\’s New Patent – Are You Excited?

Head below and find out what you had to say.

Our Favorite Responses

I\’m okay about the new patent. I mean this is not a patent that will get filled immediately anyway. Nor I care much about 3D, I do like it, just think is not necessary. Is an optional thing anyway, and I think if possible, performing this on Super Mario 3D World on the Wii U will be a blast.


What does this even mean?


I have a Love/Hate feeling towards the New Patent. If Nintendo were to make Games using these type of Glasses, while Cool for the Majority of us Gamers, a few that have trouble with 3D (those prone to headaches, or have a lazy eye–Ryan Stevens, or those who like to party game and drink Alcohol while at others parties) may not enjoy it as much. If it\’s an option, I\’m Cool with it. If it is Forced especially for a whole Game like Zelda then no.

While I am excited about the new patent and what it could do for gaming, I think it\’s important to realize that Nintendo just built a new hardware building to unify its handheld and console divisions. So what do 3d handheld guys and console guys talk about when they get together? Probably ways to incorporate the fruits of their expertise into the other guy\’s gadget. This could be the start of a completely unified Nintendo where console and handheld are one. Anyways, as always with Nintendo, the waiting and the watching.


Could this finally mean the Zapper add on, which makes Wii U a Virtual Reality console?

The eye tracking + Zapper would make Wii U the ultimate FPS console out of the box for this gen!

Well I only buy FPS\’s for Wii U even now because of the Wiimote, but this would be even better.

I am absolutely thrilled about Oculus Rift, but worryingly, so far they have only officially demonstrated it with last gen controllers, thus losing half of the impact of the virtual reality; Eye–hand coordination is a big part of how people view and operate in the reality, and handcuffing your hands into a last gen controller is wasting a good half of the immersion (and Sony\’s Move introduces game breaking input lag, which is also a big no no, especially for the price!!!).

Because of the price of the helmets, virtual reality is not going to be mainstream any time soon, especially when you add hand freeing motion controllers into the box as well. But the Zapper would make Wii U the most affordable virtual reality console, something every one could buy.

I have been dreaming about this since the announcement of the GamePad, but the news about eye tracking patents Nintendo has made brought some hope of seeing those dreams finally come true.
