Nintendo NX Going To Have The Best VR Technology


A new rumor has recently sprouted which reports that the NX’s mass production has been delayed until late 2016/early 2017 in order to improve its hybrid features and add VR functionality.

Virtual Reality has been talked about so much for the last few months; even now the conversation seems to be ramping up more and more. Just yesterday, we reported on a story, that suggested that Nintendo was holding back NX production in order to incorporate VR. While it is a rumor we all must take with a grain of salt, it is actually really convincing because it makes so much sense for them to do it. Based off the rumors for the platform, perhaps they have been subtly hinting at VR all along. After thinking about it, I believe that Nintendo’s NX is the platform that would best suit VR.

Based off rumors, Nintendo will be including a fully integrated handheld with the console. This means that Nintendo could be attempting to tackle VR with two machines instead of one. One of the reasons we are going to be getting a PS4 Neo, is due to the fact that the current PS4 is most likely not going to be able to put up with how strenuous VR is on the hardware. Oculus Rift has the same problem, only high end PCs will be able to utilize it. Nintendo on the other hand would hypothetically have a second device that wouldn’t rely on the actual console to power it, instead the NX portable would be able to do all the VR work, while the console could just focus on the game. If this were the case, the NX would be able to achieve superior graphics and framerate with its VR, which means they would be able to have any game function seamlessly on the platform. With all of this in mind I can’t help but wonder if this is the reason we saw, what many people believe to be the NX controller patent, not having any physical buttons. Maybe that is so the controller can be used as the screen for the headset; I believe that the controller will have removable handgrips, maybe the controller will snap into the headset using that same mechanism. The patent for scroll wheels as shoulder buttons could adjust the VR for different eyesights, while still being able to click when not used for VR.
