Either that, or they just became an easy aquisition target for Sony/MSoft/Samsung/Google, ect.  They've lost all leverage with this annoucement and now have no reason to keep on without changing their entire target market. 

I figure this tech is useless for anyone other than the big three. Considering Sony is suppose to have their own and I dont think it works with MS' vision (who knows though) then that would leave Nintendo. Gimmick that has potential to hit the core and casual crowds is just like nintendo (spending money however isnt)

I doubts Nintendo goes for something like this. Again.

They have said many times that their focus is kids, and how can you sell a headset to someone who' head will grow as generation goes on? Can the same piece of hardware fit the head of a 8 yo kid just like the head of someone with 14 or the one of a full grown adult? I doubt it.

But I would love to play Metroid that way!

I think it will be a success in the long run, Oculos Rift or a similar device from another manufacturer. I want one so badly. $400 would be a reasonable price in my opinion.




I don't think Carmack would have fully jumped into this if he didn't think it was tenable.

Nintendo should be interested if they knew what was good for them.  They could finally make the sequel to Teleroboxer that everyone's been waiting for.

You seriously think that theyre going to get this far, have john carmack on board, 50,000 current owners, a large portion of developers and supportive community, and 15 million towards completing a retail model, and just throw the towel in because they have run out of components for the current revision to make the DEVELOPMENT version?

you SERIOUSLY believe this?,.. wow.. just wow

Next you'll tell me Nintendo will just scrap the WiiU because a part theyre using is no longer being produced, too.

All it takes is a hardware revision using an alternative part, it isn't rocket science.


Not really.  But, I don't think (if it's the screens) that it will cheaply replaced.

The LCD panels are manufactured still, and are readily available.

It is most likelya part to do with tracking movement, which would in the abolute worst case scenario, simply mean replacing it with a similar part and adding support for the different hardware to the driver PCB.
