Nintendo NX Release Date

Will virtual reality kill Nintendo’s next-gen console before it even launches?

Will virtual reality kill Nintendo’s next-gen console before it even launches?

Nintendo faces an interesting dilemma. If it waits too long to release a new console, everyone will just wait to see what Sony and Microsoft do to follow up the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On the other hand, if Nintendo jumps the gun, it could find itself in the middle of a war with some unexpectedly expensive VR hardware.

In other words, Nintendo is going to have to pick its poison with the NX. More →

You can already save $200 on the new Oculus Rift

The hotly anticipated Oculus Rift virtual reality headset is finally available for preorder after what seems like an eternity of waiting. The system has undergone a number of changes since Facebook acquired Oculus for $2 billion back in 2014, and preorders for the final version went live this past Wednesday. The price is a steep $599, but consumer-ready VR equipment is a very young space so a steep early adopter tax is obviously expected.

As it turns out though, you can already get a big discount on a brand new Oculus Rift kit despite the fact that it doesn’t even start shipping until March. More →

Oculus Rift: Start saving money for a high-end computer, and it won’t be a Mac

The Oculus Rift is finally nearing mass-production, but that’s not necessarily good news for anyone looking to purchase one of Facebook’s virtual reality headsets, because the VR gadget will require a very powerful computer, one that’s going to be rather expensive. And it apparently can’t be a MacBook Pro or any other Mac OS computer, as the Oculus Rift will only run on Windows devices for the time being. More →
