2 words: STEREOSCOPIC 3D (make it half side by side or half top and bottom)

Having played VR myself,

Having played Breath of the Wild and loving it along with every other 3D console version of Zelda,

And the fact that that I prefer the 3D Mario’s on consoles

(So thats 3 Mario games in 20 years)

“the lazy *****”.

I would say that the VR implementation of the switch is a deal Maker.

People will be more likely to buy a switch because of VR.

Whereas the people who already own a switch who are obviously experts about the switch

Are not interested as they did not buy the switch for its VR capability.

Meaning that as we are reaching saturation of the market for the switch

The VR side of the switch might fail to show a revenue return to make Nintendo take notice.

So this will be the last time for a long time that Nintendo ever bothers with VR again.

*Labo VR is not a great idea as cardboard is just cardboard after all.

So let’s hope someone makes a (good) plastic version to play Breath of the wild on.

Labo VR will need to strap to your head, otherwise it will be difficult to play BotW.

Labo VR.., aka, strap the switch to your face. Sorry, no. That’s not VR.

I don't even know why Nintendo is trying with VR. It really seems pretty half-baked and a definite gimmick. I mean I get making it affordable and trying new things, but the effort put into Labo is just laughable and doesn't even look worth the cost.

These games are hardly games that justify VR anyway.
