Last time I checked Sony said that their VR stuff is selling slower than expected. And they are the market leader. I don't think VR is such a big trend as many tend to believe. Don't get me wrong, I love my PSVR and all, but the release of new games has become slower and slower. Apart from Skyrim there are almost no AAA titles to be found. I have a little bit of hope for E3, maybe we get something like Killzone VR or Fallout 3/4 VR. That would be great. But if Sony doesn't deliver at E3, VR is kinda dead to me. The tech is cool, but there is simply not enough software and as the sales have proved, most people simply don't care at all about VR. It is not the future of gaming. It's just a niche. A niche that has yet to prove that it is sustainable.

Because of that, I think Nintendo won't bother with VR for the foreseeable future.

Don't get to discouraged on VR. It may not be ready for mass market yet, but it will be vital to our evolution. AR/VR will allow us to interface with computers on a whole new level, essentially allowing us to become cyborgs. Giving us real time data in real life situations, while allowing us to quickly perform simulations in VR before performing tasks. Just like Cameras, Motion, and 3D were building blocks to VR, VR will be the building block to many future technologies. VR will continue to advance, and eventually become as prominent as Smartphones. It is a technology that goes way, way beyond games or entertainment. 

Once it reaches the point where a $300 set up can achieve a comfortable experience to the mass market, Nintendo will make their move.

Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
