Not everyone knows, but before Oculus VR was created and we heard Oculus Rifcie for the first time, the Japanese company Nintedno has been experimenting with VR technology for years, called Virtual Boy. This was an unlikely experiment, but Nintendo apparently did not completely abandon the idea.
Microsoft is working on HoloLens, which will probably work with the Xbox One, Valve has created HTC Vive with HTC, and Sony has its PlayStation VR. The Japanese giant Nintendo does not want to be inferior to its rivals and is also considering developing a VR kit for entertainment.
Although the company once tried to implement such technology, it was a device called Virtual Boy, but then technology was not developed enough to provide good image quality, so the project turned out to be a failure. Now it is completely different and the current president of Tatsumi Kimishima, during the presentation of financial results said that this is a very interesting technology and Nintendo is considering the creation of its own VR device. For now, these are only preparations and there are not yet specific plans to release such equipment to the market.
Kimishima’s statement is a complete change of Nintendo’s approach to VR technology. In recent years, both Shigeru Miyamoto and the head of the US Reggie Fils-Aime division, have been skeptical about this solution, claiming that they will not give players any fun and do not fit the philosophy of the company.
