Virtual Reality Gaming is already being introduced and big game console companies such as Sony and Microsoft are already paving the way for the future of gaming.
The third big game console company, Nintendo, thinks otherwise. You see, as of this moment, Virtual Reality gaming is still premature and not a lot of people are excited by it.
Although a lot of people have tried it, it is not really something that people are clamoring for.
Furthermore, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said that they are continually creating content for what they have right now and for what people really want.
Should Virtual reality gaming be really popular, Nintendo will keep a close eye. If it is indeed the future of gaming and people would want more VR games, then Nintendo will listen and create that.
Aime said that the audience is just too limited right now, so they should just focus their efforts somewhere else. This is not to say that they are ditching VR gaming altogether but they just want to go to the direction where it would benefit gamers.
Just remember that the Nintendo NX is VR-ready, but again, Nintendo is mum about the specific details.
Unbeknownst to many, Nintendo already touched on the topic of VR gaming in their first Nintendo Wii. It never really took off on its own and the entertainment company needed to release two more accessories in order for people to truly enjoy the Nintendo Wii.
Aime also made a bold statement that VR gaming would not really take off seeing as it is right now and he treats it only as a “snack” in the entertainment industry.
Nintendo already jumped to Virtual Reality Gaming before and they’re now more cautious due to the fact their ventures before were not really that successful.
But seeing that many companies right now are already trying Virtual Reality gaming, I guess Nintendo will have to try again and who knows, maybe they will be successful this time around.
Nintendo is currently smaller than its rivals, Sony and Microsoft. The Nintendo Wii U was a huge disappointment and it didn’t live up to the Nintendo Wii’s success.
Even though the entertainment company will not be pioneering virtual reality gaming into the mainstream, fans of the company still have high hopes for them.
The Nintendo NX game console is stirring up the game community because of its promising lineup of games such as the confirmed release of the new Legend of Zelda game and the Monster Hunter Ultimate game as well.
Of course, those are not the only games that will be available when the Nintendo NX comes; I am sure that there will be plenty of games when the game console finally arrives to the market.
Is Virtual Reality the future of gaming? Only time will tell. As of now, Nintendo will just focus more on their Nintendo NX and other stuff. If VR gaming becomes popular, Nintendo will listen and they will act on it.
