Analyst claims that the Nintendo NX could be Nintendo's first social VR platform

The following information comes from an analyst from MCVUK:

It’s conclusion? The NX could be centred about social virtual reality of augmented reality games.

It speculates that Nintendo’s solution could involve a low cost dedicated games console with a spec equal to or lower than PS4 and Xbox One that has been optimised for VR/AR. This would be accompanied by a low cast headset, possibly following the template laid out by the likes of Samsung’s Gear VR – which, of course, would tie into Nintendo’s smartphone aspirations.

It also believes this would be accompanied by an accessible controller designed to do for VR what the WiiRemote did for console gaming.
