Let's be realistic here: even if every single Switch owner bought Labo VR, it wouldn't be mainstream, it would be a niche within a niche.

Well there you have it folks, Nintendo's cardboard VR already has stronger game support than PSVR, and it's not even been released yet lol. /s

Remember all those videos of people breaking TVs with Wii motes?

Wonder what damage a running kid with a cardboard blindfold can do? Or a fat adult.

Why would someone run with a 3DoF headset? I mean I know some people do, but it's pointless.

I'm a big Switch fan, and definitely value VR, bit this is going to suck hard. Good games - check. VR hardware - no. No no no. Hell, the Switch only runs BotW at 30 fps as it is. It is not going to deliver 90+ fps stereoscopic BotW, and even if it did the screen door effect and pixel size will be like rubbing legos on your eyeballs

I agree. I wish the old president were back to stop this nonsense. I liked the old president saying they would only go after VR when it's comfortable. It just seemed like they would only tackle VR when they thought of a design for the masses. With the new president, it seems like they're going after sloppy bandwagon bucks, which I honestly don't respect.

This is the thing though: It doesn't need to be all that good. I don't think they're expecting this to outsell PSVR. This sounds more like just an interesting bonus for the kids who buy the Labo VR kit.

If I were a kid again and I asked my parents for Labo VR, and I heard it was going to out-of-the-blue support 2 of the games that I would very likely own and love... I would be overjoyed. Even if it's not going to be the best VR experience (and how could it be), that would be the coolest thing. If I were in that situation, I probably hadn't even experienced VR before. I just don't think it's going to be for you or me.

Remaster the Virtual Boy games in color and release a 1 cart compilation and there could be a purchase. Even creating a Virtual Boy colored Labo Kit would nice.

It's just a novelty/gimmick item guys. You can't possibly expect a high quality VR experience from a Labo kit.

Next gen should be promising though.

@KungfuKitten: I remember playing a Sega VR game at an arcade back in the '90s, and that was some cool shit as a kid. I can imagine kids today getting the same feel playing VR for the first time.

Labo VR will flop harder than the original Labo did. Nintendo looking for a way to get rid of their excess cardboard and they've found suckers like you willing to spend money on that trash.

This is why Nintendo is trying to get in on the VR train....

Pressure Mounts for Xbox’s Missing VR Strategy as PSVR Revenue Nears $2 Billion

It isn’t just the weight of VR support that could be furthering PlayStation’s edge, there’s revenue to be considered too. PSVR’s install base might not be huge relative to PS4, but it’s an expensive device—often even more expensive than the console that powers it—bringing the company considerable additional revenue.

Last week Sony officially reported that the PSVR install base has reached 4.2 million units. The headset has been sold in various configurations since launch, with Sony lowering prices over time from the original $500 Launch Bundle to today’s bundles priced around $300. The company has also run aggressive sales each holiday shopping season since the headset launched.

Roughing out a $400 average selling price for the first 2.1 million units and a $300 average for following 2.1 million, we can estimate that Sony has generated nearly $1.5 billion in revenue from PSVR hardware.

Nintendo is seeing all the money Sony is printing with PSVR and hoping their google cardboard copycat will bring in the some extra revenue lol.

aint nobody printing money on 4 million sold.

how much does it cost to make the device and paying everybody working on it. its not as simple as 4million X 300= profit. There are tons of costs sony needs to pay from the 1.5 billion.

PSVR failed. Vr in general failed.

Nintendo will try and actually make it successful. They see an opportunity to succeed where others failed.

thats how the NES was born when atari failed nintendo did it better.

Again, this is only Nintendo playing around with VR while offering a cheap entryway method for kids to try out VR for the first time. This is not to be taken seriously and it is not made for all of you hardcore VR gamers out there. This is a great idea for kids and I think Nintendo knows exactly what they’re doing. Those calling this a PSVR killer are just either messing around or just not very bright. This will expand the VR user base going forward to the next gen of VR and I’m willing to bet Nintendo makes a solid attempt at VR next gen. Til then, this is practice.

Sony sells PSVR at a profit and the software attachment ratio for it is high so they are printing money unlike your failed Labo.

Nintendo is trying desperately to reboot that flop with a hilarious Google cardboard clone. 😂 Someone tell those idiots that 720p/60fps VR on their shitty screens will send kids and adults into nausea and vomit city.

exactly. REVENUE and small profit. Sony is making Peanuts.

the nausea machines are already out. labo is shallow enough for you to not feel dizzy because the goggles are easily removable at any sign of discomfort.

Labo is the REAL 1st VR experience. and if Vr ever gets to the point of overtaking the gaming market nintendo will be there to do it.

What i meant is LAbo is REAL "1st" VR experience. Meaning this is what everyone should start with if they want to get into VR.

PSVR and vive and occulus are for hardcore people that want to go deeper or they dont get sick and stuff.

LABO is for everyone. people that just want to see how VR is without spending mega cash or not having to setup a bunch of wires or dont want to get dizzy or sick.

i doubt nintendo would put out a vomit machine. also the fact that the goggles are held by your hands and can be easily removed in an instant will help i think.

@KBFloYd is the type of dude that would buy shit on a stick if it had the Nintendo logo on it. He's a special breed of fanboy.

I understand loving Nintendo, at some point I was like that about Sega when I was a kid but it doesn't mean that you have to blindly defend every single thing they put out even if it's crap.

People here say I'm a Sony guy but other than the home PlayStation consoles I don't own a single Sony product in my house because I frankly don't find most of their products to be that great compared to their competition. I didn't even own the Vita because I thought it was overpriced and lacked good support from Sony. Why is it so hard for people like him to be objective while supporting the company that they love? Like now he's saying Labo VR will be the "REAL VR" despite the fact he's never used it before and it's basically a google cardboard strapped to a Switch which is more underpowered than the phones that power Google Cardboard. The Switch doesn't have the right screen for VR nor the horse power underneath the hood to support the high framerates VR demands yet this guy believes it will be the generation defining VR experience because it has a Nintendo logo on it lol.

Yeah thats another Labo VR thread and there's others doing the same. It's crazy. This is going to fail as hard as Labo originally did, people don't want pieces of cardboard. They want a decent, cheap VR, which isn't happening anytime soon.

The Switch doesn't have the right screen for VR nor the horse power underneath the hood to support the high framerates VR demands yet this guy believes it will be the generation defining VR experience because it has a Nintendo logo on it lol.

i will tell you why i am defending and hyping. I never used VR so this will be my first experience with it. why the **** do i have to use a shitstation VR or a PC million dollar VR in order for me to have an opinion on VR?

labo will be my first experience and i have confidence the product will give me a good idea somewhat of what VR is about and thats good enough for now and for eveyone who wants to taste VR.

If people get hooked on it it might make them buy a psvr or a PC VR. This is nothing but good news for VR and here you are hating just because its going to shit on your precious sony VR sales.

now who is the fanboy?

😂 You're insane lol, you should be banned for posting such an idiotic comment. Oculus, Vive, PSVR, Oculus Go, Samsung VR, etc. aren't real VR but Nintendo's google cardboard clone stuck to a bird's butt is, LMFAO!

^ ^ Is this you?

What i meant is LAbo is REAL "1st" VR experience. Meaning this is what everyone should start with if they want to get into VR.

PSVR and vive and occulus are for hardcore people that want to go deeper or they dont get sick and stuff.

LABO is for everyone. people that just want to see how VR is without spending mega cash or not having to setup a bunch of wires or dont want to get dizzy or sick.

Have you played labo vr? how do you know that it doesn't cause sickness? Do you know what causes the motion sickness? because a 30fps console is going to make it worse.

@KBFloYd is the type of dude that would buy shit on a stick if it had the Nintendo logo on it. He's a special breed of fanboy.

I understand loving Nintendo, at some point I was like that about Sega when I was a kid but it doesn't mean that you have to defend every single thing they put out even if it's crap.

People here say I'm a Sony guy but other than the home PlayStation consoles I don't own a single Sony product in my house because I frankly don't find most of their products to be that great compared to their competition. I didn't even own the Vita because I thought it was overpriced and lacked good support from Sony. Why is it so hard for people like him to be objective while supporting the company that they love? Like now he's saying Labo VR will be the "REAL VR" despite the fact he's never used it before and it's basically a google cardboard strapped to a Switch which is more underpowered than the phones that power Google Cardboard. The Switch doesn't have the right screen for VR nor the horse power underneath the hood to support the high framerates VR demands yet this guy believes it will be the generation defining VR experience because it has a Nintendo logo on it lol.

i will tell you why i am defending and hyping. I never used VR so this will be my first experience with it. why the **** do i have to use a shitstation VR or a PC million dollar VR in order for me to have an opinion on VR? Is a roller coaster the same as a merry go round, cause thats the same as labo vr vs psvr or PC. Go for the full thing if you want the experience not a cheap knock off.

labo will be my first experience and i have confidence the product will give me a good idea somewhat of what VR is about and thats good enough for now and for eveyone who wants to taste VR. So why havn't you used mobile VR yet? the demo stations where everywhere at one point.

If people get hooked on it it might make them buy a psvr or a PC VR. This is nothing but good news for VR and here you are hating just because its going to shit on your precious sony VR sales.

now who is the fanboy? You are, your making out like this is going to be better then psvr/pc when its not.

who are you to say how good labo will be? you have it and used it? no. you are speaking out of your personal bias and experience. good for you. but ill make my own decisions thank you.

also i didnt say it was better than PSVR in terms of immersion. i said it would sell better and is a better entry point for newbies.

You're crazy lol.

1. Who says you need a PS4 or a PC to do VR? You don't lol. Google is selling google cardboard for $15 and I guarantee you it will be a better experience than that shit "VR" that Nintendo is pedaling. Because unless you have a phone from the dark ages I'm sure it has a better screen than the Switch for VR. All the phones they sell now have better screens for VR than the Switch. There's absolutely no chance you will get a solid VR experience from Nintendo's cheap 720 pixelated screen.

2. You're nut-hugging Labo VR simply because it has a Nintendo logo on it. You've never used VR before so your opinion is worthless. I've used all the VR headsets out there including cheap ass Google cardboard VR and I can tell you it doesn't hold a candle to Samsung VR much less PSVR or Vive. Those of us that have spent years using VR extensively are telling you that you can't compare that garbage Nintendo Trashbo experience to real VR headsets out there and you're dismissing our informed opinions because you're a crazy fanboy that has a hardon for anything Nintendo. You were always against VR and now Nintendo is doing it you're declaring their VR will be world changing and somehow deliver a better experience than other enthusiast VR headsets out there lol.

3. Of course I want people to get hooked on VR. I'm happy Nintendo is getting onboard with VR and you Sheep are finally embracing it despite the fact you guys have been claiming VR was dead for years. Now you're championing VR despite the fact you hated the idea of it barely a few weeks ago. The problem with this is that Nintendo aren't the first ones to go this cardboard mainstream route. Others have done it before and much better with Google Cardboard, Samsung VR, and all the copy cats out there that sell cheap Google and Samsung VR knockoffs. There are already cheaper options out there for people that want to try and out cheap "VR" and don't want to buy a PC or a PS4. The only thing Nintendo is bringing that is unique are their IPs and their quirky gimmicks. It might work out for them and sell gangbusters or it might flop hard again like Labo did last year, who knows. What we do know though is that the quality of the experience will never match what PSVR and PC VR already have, it's not even comparable at all.

who are you to say how good labo will be? you have it and used it? no. you are speaking out of your personal bias and experience. good for you. but ill make my own decisions thank you. No I'm speaking on the fact that BOTW is locked to 30fps on handheld and VR needs a minimum of 90fps to be playable without sickness. So how is BOTW going to achieve good VR? Its basic VR knowledge. No bias, just logic.

also i didnt say it was better than PSVR in terms of immersion. i said it would sell better and is a better entry point for newbies. What basis is it going to sell better? Labo? cause that sold horribly.

again if 90fps was neccessary nintendo wouldnt be releasing labo VR. obviously nintendo feel they have something they can bring to the table. whether it be with the card board and joycon motion gimmicks or with their own IPs. whatever they have up their sleeve im sure the "experience" will shit on smasung VR's slightly sharper screen. the immersion will not be PC vr level or even psvr either but the combination of the cardboard creations with the joycons and nintendo software abilities i feel this will be a great entry Vr experience.

if all i said was correct word of mouth will sell this just like the wii.

That shows how little you know about VR and what is needed with the technology.

Nintendo's programmers are pretty dang clever. I'm confident that they will work well within the Switch's limitations and leverage the systems strengths to deliver at least a fairly compelling experience. For a few minutes anyway.

@Oemenia: My post was mostly tongue in cheek, of course PSVR has and will continue to have a far larger library for its platform than the Labo VR set.

Still, it's cool that Nintendo are adding VR support to some of their biggest games. Maybe Sony will follow suite on that in the future.

lol just dancing on PSVR's tombstone

lol fail.

Labo VR will flop harder than the original Labo did. Nintendo looking for a way to get rid of their excess cardboard and they've found suckers like you willing to spend money on that trash.

This is why Nintendo is trying to get in on the VR train....

https://www.roadtovr.com/xbox-one-x-vr-missing-strategy-playstation-vr-psvr-revenue/

Pressure Mounts for Xbox’s Missing VR Strategy as PSVR Revenue Nears $2 Billion

It isn’t just the weight of VR support that could be furthering PlayStation’s edge, there’s revenue to be considered too. PSVR’s install base might not be huge relative to PS4, but it’s an expensive device—often even more expensive than the console that powers it—bringing the company considerable additional revenue.

Last week Sony officially reported that the PSVR install base has reached 4.2 million units. The headset has been sold in various configurations since launch, with Sony lowering prices over time from the original $500 Launch Bundle to today’s bundles priced around $300. The company has also run aggressive sales each holiday shopping season since the headset launched.

Roughing out a $400 average selling price for the first 2.1 million units and a $300 average for following 2.1 million, we can estimate that Sony has generated nearly $1.5 billion in revenue from PSVR hardware.

Nintendo is seeing all the money Sony is printing with PSVR and hoping their google cardboard copycat will bring in the some extra revenue lol.

But what if it does? If Labo sells a lot of units what then?

@Coolyfett: It won’t stop the Labo VR from being a pile of crap like Labo was. The whole thing is trash and isn’t a real VR headset like the Oculus, Vive, and PSVR are and it shouldn’t be compared to those headsets in any way. Its competition is Google Cardboard.

damage control.

if people have more fun with it and would rather buy labo than psvr. then who cares how expensive and immersive pc vr and even psvr is?

if labo vr sells more then that means the public has spoken and they prefer something simple like labo vr than pc or psvr at this point in VR's life.

labo VR being the best selling vr would speak volumes about vr direction and what they need to do going forward.

What damage control? It has a higher chance of flopping than anything else considering it's not the first device of its kind, it's total crap, and Labo was a monumental flop.

You're just doing wishful thinking here hoping it succeeds. Nothing we've seen from it suggests it will be a success at all. Nintendo failed last time they tried VR and they failed last time they tried Labo, the public has already rejected Labo once. What makes you think they won't reject it again? I predict it will flop hard and you will go into hiding just like your kind did when Labo flopped the last time, and you will pretend you never hyped this turd.
