...because usually people say Sony is the one who always copies Nintendo. After the PlayStation Classic was announced, there's a lot of people going "Sony is ripping off Nintendo" or "Sony didn't do this until Nintendo did it".

Yet now after Astro Bot Rescue Mission comes out, I'm now seeing some comments like "I hope Nintendo gets in on the VR" or "I'd love to see Nintendo make a Mario VR game". It's kind of ironic in some ways.

Personally, I'm okay with just Sony doing this. Nintendo doesn't need to get in on EVERYTHING. So for me, Astro Bot is good enough.
Crossovers I want: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale 2, Shonen Jump vs. Capcom, Mortal Kombat vs. Killer Instinct, and Tekken vs. Dead or Alive/Virtua Fighter

There's no way the switch is powerful enough to support vr so it won't happen this gen.

Well the switch isn't powerful enough on it's own, and neither was the PS4 Pro I own because the VR still came with an extra processor. So if Nintendo did make a VR system it would probably be a larger docking system that boosts the processing power of the switch to VR capable standards.

Nintendo is not on the tech-race anymore. It will be long years before Nintendo try VR again and by then Sony and even Microsoft will be light-years ahead of them.

Legitimate question but why does vr require a lot of processing power?

Because you need to render an image twice. One for each eye. So basically double the processing power right there. Then the resolution needs to be high enough to work because the screeen is so close to your face, 1)Too low and pixels readily visible, and 2) the 3D effect is not convincing with not enough pixels to adequately portray distance and depth.

So 1080p really at a minimum, the higher resolution the better, plus rendering the full scene once for each eye.

The PSVR "Processing Unit" is not an "extra processor". The only thing it does is un-warp the VR image to display on the social screen, and 3D audio. Literally no game graphics or general processing is done on the Processing Unit.

Not to mention the fact that games need to run at a 100% locked 60-90FPS.

I feel this is EXACTLY what Nintendo would have made if they got into VR. Stage for stage
