720p? Reduced in half? How terrible would that look?

720p vr, oh my days xD, that's lower than the Rift DK1, which was absolutely terrible.

What does everyone find so gaudy about this?

Looks just like every other VR headset out there. But if Nintendo goes VR, they do have a cheap headset. I can't imagine that thing would cost more than $100.

It's not people feel it's gaudy, it's that the VR experience would be bloody awful. 720p Screen... basically just a crap Samsung Gear.

Though on another note, has anyone ever thought that the tablet itself may not have gyroscope, accelerometer and all those sensors you need in it? Sure it has motion control capabilities while the Joycons are attached, does the ACTUAL tablet have sensors in?

Meh on 720. It's not like any VR game is worth a damn anyway. They are all either two short, horrible controlled or look like a ps1 game anyway.

If not, Nintendo would need to add gyros to the headset. There goes the $99.00 price tag.

   

Hey! They got SONY on my amiibo! Wait a minute. Two great gaming tastes that game great together!

I used VR on an iPhone 5s, who's resolution is much lower than that. It would definitely be tolerable.



Well, this is new.

Not exactly. I mean the two joycons sell for less than $100.

Then headset wouldn't need HD rumble, or the other features the joycons have. So you have a plastic headpiece, some lenses and a gyroscope. gyroscope is not an expensive thing. Practically everything has it these days.

Also the $100 I tossed up was just a figure, cause that is what like the Samsung headsets are. And they are insanely overpriceed. They are basically just plastic headset with lenses. No way that costs more than $10 to make. Thus why you always hear some promotion where you buy a new samsung phone you get a free headset.

iphone 5s : 326ppi
Switch : 237ppi

Switch would still look worse.

I mean, the screen quality would. The games would look better.

Yeah, but no one has made a mobile VR headset using a "big" 6.2 in. screen before. You would not have to magnify it so much. It might help a little.
