VIRTUAL BOY WAS NOT VR! It is the same thing 3DS is just not red. It's 3D. VR is not the next big thing it's the next big flop like 3D. VR cannot be the next big thing when it fails every time they try to be the next big thing just like 3D fails to be the next big thing.
Every 20+ years 3D and VR try to be the next big thing EVERYTIME they fail. This is Sony's THIRD ATTEMPT since PS2.
Virtual Reality is to simulate a 3D space around you that you can interact with in first person simulating reality. Virtual Boy was a NES with red sprites that popped out in 3D. It is not VR.
BTW just saw this http://gizmodo.com/t...3/ kirkhamilton
been saying for years as long as it's attached to your face it's not going to take off.
That's because developers program what they think VR should be like instead of what VR is. They're putting you in complex environments that melt your chips and you can't touch anything. This is where I believe Nintendo will get it right. They will realize that they need to use games where interacting with the environment via controller makes sense and that picture-perfect graphics do not matter. So no Madden VR, but hello Mario Kart, StarFox, R.O.B. Adventures, and Train Simulator 2015!
