"Our R&D operations are working on technologies for many types of hardware. We will consider the possibility of creating technology demonstrations and making versions of titles under development for these new platforms," when asked specifically about the NX and PlayStationVR. "At this time, we have not announced any plans for specific products or the timing of a product launch."
NX software developer kits, which game-makers can use to create new NX games or modify their existing ones to run on the new hardware, are reportedly being sent out now to third-party publishers. Capcom is one of the biggest names in games, so it wouldn't be surprising to learn the company was sent one, though this is not confirmed.
For its part, Nintendo has said it does not plan to talk about the NX in an official capacity until 2016.
As for PlayStationVR, the virtual reality headset formerly known as Project Morpheus is slated to arrive in the first half of 2016. A price point for the device has not been announced, though PlayStation executive Andrew House has said it will be priced like a new gaming system.
