Why is the VERT FIRST SENTENCE I read an "I told you so"?? Game/tech outlets seem to just love having their best guesses turn out to be true, to the interest of virtually no one. Conversely, I've not once seen said journalists ever walk back some wrong hunch and own up to the error with a "whoops, guess we were wrong". No slight to Alex here, this is just a pet peeve of mine that seems to happen without fail in speculative reporting.

No. The very first sentence is "Everyone told everyone else so. And everyone was right.". It's a very Alex thing to say, and I love it.

It looks like it's trying to be two things but not being very good at either.

As a console, it's not going to compare with the PS4 and XB1.

As a portable device (pretty much a tablet) it will probably just play games, have a browser and support Netflix etc. iPads and other tablets can do way more already with way more game selection (and dev support). Not to mention you can also connect them to your TV.

I just don't know who this is for.

I'm all for Nintendo doing their own thing and not entering in the stupid grahpics war that is between PS4/Xbox. If they weren't willing to do their own thing, then the Wii wouldn't have existed when it did. Motion controls wouldn't have become a wildly popular thing in millions of homes. And we may not have VR at the state that we do right now.

Besides all of the above, Here's a sample of current on-board Devs. Possibly the best quote I've seen yet on this thing. "Nintendo is trying to make a better console. Sony and MS are trying to make a worse PC".

And as far as "it will probably just play games,", I would be OK with this. We have enough devices that are trying to be everything at once and falling short in each department. Let Nintendo do what Nintendo does and make damn good games for their innovative consoles.

I feel like the suggestion of adding a nose to the player's view to help prevent motion sickness has come up a few times over the years, and yet I'm still not seeing it in VR games...

EDIT: Sooooooo Playstation VR is the new XBox Kinect?

Except people will actually buy this.

At least, I'm people and I'll buy it.
