Though Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime has mentioned that Nintendo’s doesn’t have current plans to utilize Virtual Reality, Engadget asked the company executive about the new technology. Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
“Accelerometers were not in the lexicon until it was in a Wii remote and you’re playing Wii Sports,” he added. “So fun, social, mass market are the elements for us. We brought augmented reality to the marketplace with Nintendo 3DS. We made it fun, we made it social. With VR, again, we just continue to put it up against those standards. For us, it’s not quite there yet.”
