Digi-Capital: The Nintendo NX Could Be A Virtual Reality Or Augmented Reality Console

Digi-Capital, which is a financials and investment site, believes that the Nintendo NX will be Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality based. The site has taken an extensive look at statements from Nintendo employees such as Reggie Fils-Aime and Mr Miyamoto and checks these against facts to come to this conclusion. The site also backs up Unseen64’s claims that the console won’t be as powerful as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Digi-Capital also says that Nintendo won’t invest in a Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality headset, but will utilise smartphones along with the NX platform using its partnership with DeNA to produce the effects.

  1. >>>I don’t really care what it is, just make great quality games>>>

    1. We know you don’t care, because as long as it has a Nintendo logo on it you will buy it. Just like that Jimmy Kimmel prank with the “iWatch” ;)

      1. >>>Whatever fairytales you want to believe in Michael Pachter clone>>>

    2. Isn’t that the WiiU? If you aren’t up on your history, then you would know they did this shit and it was a huge fucking failure. I’m so glad I got a play station 4 last week. Nintendo has gone stupid as fuck, and Iwata made sure he left his hallmark of quality after the Wii was made. Dudes at Nintendo are fucking brain dead with visions that don’t add up to what the industry is: online, powerful, graphical, good gameplay, quality games.

      1. I just got a PS4 for my birthday. PS4 really doesn’t have shit for games. Bloodborne is cool. That’s about it. The only time I really use the PS4 is to watch Dexter and The Walking Dead blu rays. Splatoon, Smash Bros and MK8 are the games I play on a regular basis. I haven’t found any fun games on PS4 yet. Not sure what all the hype was about. I’m content with my Wii U. If the PS4 wasn’t a birthday gift, I’d sell it.

        1. What kind of games do you play? Also, don’t tell me you only have one or two games for it. Of course you wouldn’t have crap to play if you didn’t buy anything new. Lol.

        2. Dude, what games are you playing on the Wii U right now? Splatoon is the only game that has released on the Wii U this entire year that is worth playing. Sorry, but one game every six months does not do it for me.

          1. >>>He just said he plays Splatoon, Mario Kart 8 and Smash Brothers regularly, and just because the games on the Wii U doesn’t appeal to you, doesn’t mean it doesn’t appeal to him>>>

      2. “online, powerful, graphical”…..and you got a PS4 instead of a gaming PC? Sounds like you are just as “brain dead”.

          1. If he cares about power and graphics then he should care about PC gaming because that’s the dominant platform for what he wants. Oh and online gaming doesn’t require some bogus subscription cost.

      3. “good gameplay, quality games”???

        Perhaps for the re-masters that statement makes sense, but not for the current gen. But then, the library is mostly made up of re-masters.

      4. Action Jackson..All i can say to you is facepalm! You are a sorry excuse for a gamer..Better yet you are no true gamer..A true gamer does not care about just pretty games ..Fun is also a must and if that is all you care about Online,Power and stuff like that than stick with the Ps4 ….But People like me who owns all the consoles don’t do stupid console wars..Don’t like Nintendo than don’t buy..Stick to what you got and stop with the hissy fits..Just saying

    3. On the contrary; If they force us to buy smartphones just to play some games… that would be horrible and an asshole move.

      1. >>>Not the same thing, Smartphones or anything connected to that garbage is not gaming>>>

      1. >>>As long as it’s cost effective and doesn’t drain electricity like the other 2 does then sure, I will not pay extra for a machine that some of you wants them to be like the other 2 PC imbecile wannabes>>>

          1. >>>It draws more than double the Wii U power does, basically, your electric bills are higher using the PC twins>>>

      2. >>>That primitive ape still stalks me, its entire life is as pointless as humanity, smoking pot, hating and thinks its funny when no one cares about its useless comments>>>

        1. Maybe he’s in love with you? The most hardcore homosexual haters are in the closet, after all.

          1. >>>I don’t engage with marijuana smoking god worshipping primals>>>

            1. Correction: you don’t engage with close minded marijuana smoking god worshipping primals. lol I don’t smoke weed but I am christian myself. Although, according to some people like Skeleton420, I’m not really a christian since I do have an open mind. Too bad there isn’t a group of Christians like minded as me so I could call myself a less broader term. Sadly, even if there was such a group, even they most likely have a few crazies in their group. :/

              1. >>>I’d say religious then, I don’t care if people believe in a God or Gods or whatever, as long as they leave me alone, I’ll leave them alone, unfortunately, these apes aren’t even that smart either>>>

                1. >>>Speaking of this rare dog breed, he blames Sweden for racism because he got “arrested” the other day, maybe he shouldn’t smoke that worthless garbage to begin with>>>

                    1. Ugh! I don’t want to read all of that crap if this explains what you meant!

                    2. You have to. I’m not gonna do your homework for you. If you don’t want to read it, click on one of the videos or something.

              2. I have an open mind too my good sir,and I am a christian too, I don’t think God has a problem with that,too be honest.

      1. first of sll i made 250 thousand clear net profit last gime i invested in the big N i predicted the mouse pointer on wii in 2003

        end of debate A DUALSHOCK ANDVA BOX IS NOT NEXT GEN FACT

    1. Dudes don’t know what the fuck they are doing. If they did, they wouldn’t have made the fucking WiiU in the first place.

    2. I use to believe Nintendo knew what they are doing. But sadly the Wii U has made me question that. Just because they once knew what they were doing doesn’t mean they still know.

    3. Seems like the Wii U’s situation wasn’t big enough of a wake up call for you
      Poor little thing

  2. Why would it be if they told everyone tech isn’t there yet? You think Nintendo is gonna go all in and create some amazing expensive thing? Nope! They’ll make another SD DS

      1. Really than how do you count the 9 Million consoles sold..Hummm right want to think before you comment next time kiddo

          1. Even if there are people buying a brand new console because they sold the old one or it broke, I highly doubt it’s more than 1-1.5 million people. But yeah. Sadly, sales does not always equal fanbase.

        1. “Half of those are probably people that bought a second one because they broke the first one.” Something I’m sure someone that hates on Nintendo would say to you.

  3. If this was a rumor from Sony or MS I would be ok with it because their lack of pushing shit to the limit would mean that they would push the AR/VR but not shove it. Nintendo on the other hand commits and goes far beyond, so if the need of a Smartphone is mandatory on the NX to fully experience the games how they are ment to be played, then that worries and turns me off from the NX.

    Good thing this is just a rumor, and lets hope it stays that way.

      1. Well it became a rumor the minute they made their speculation public knowledge because if it wasn’t a rumor before, it will be now.

    1. Sony made some game use smartphones, but it was only an option, a bonus function that didn’t affect a normal gameplay. (except for the last AC, which had a few content, and that was only a Ubisoft fail).

      I don’t think Nintendo know what they’re doing at all… they failed and failed and failed, and it’s because they can’t settle on a console design to simply upgrade… they always have to go “Original” and that is what drags them behind. Because of this, they can’t turn their attentions to games…

      The truth revealed.

  4. I highly doubt this. Nintendo has said more than once that they don’t think virtual reality gaming is the best way to go at this time. So they won’t build a next gen console around VR.

      1. Yeah but the Virtual Boy was a bigger failure than the Wii U currently is sales wise so I really don’t see them going back into that and besides Shigeru Miyamoto has already said that Nintendo doesn’t have any interest in Virtual Reality gaming but you never know

        1. Correction: The Wii U is a bigger failure than the Virtual boy. Not even trolling this time.

          1. Virtual Boy had 12 games and didn’t last a year. WiiU is 3 years in and over 480 games up on the virtual boy.

          2. The PS4 is a bigger failure in terms of exclusives and I’m not even trolling :)

            1. Okay, I try to have a legitimate discussion with you , but be a fuckboy instead. I applaud you sir 👏

        2. See I don’t believe them anymore, I know they’ve failed with VR, but the Power Glove was also a failure and from that we got the Wiimote. Nintendo is too unpredictable nowadays, I hope and I honestly mean it, I hope that it’s not a VR console and it in no way incorporates a smart phone.

    1. I remember Nintendo being more interested with the hologram tech that was shown off 2 years ago…. Could this be what the NX is pointing towards?

  5. Buulshit, Miyamoto clearly said that they won’t be exploring virtual reality anytime soon. So this this another one of these false rumors that contradicts what Nintendo wants to do with the NX.

    1. But sometimes what Nintendo says & what they do end up being two different things. *cough*2015won’thaveanygamedroughtsforWiiU*cough*

  6. What about a AR projector….like the map used inthe original X-men movie??

  7. Alright! More ultra ridiculous news! I hope Nintendo does do something completely off the walls and make a virtual reality console you have to stand in a portal and charge up youre power gloves. And then use moon money to buy upgrades.

    I want to jump through as many hoops of fire as possible!

  8. The more I hear about this the less I wish I did lol. I just want a Nintendo console up to date spec-wise with competitors so most 3rd party games hit all 3 major boxes. Then as far as peripherals and unique controllers Nintendo can do their thing and have the most unique experiences as well.

    1. It’s not that simple, Nintendo can make the most third party developer friendly system, but what happens when CoD, AC etc are still selling less than thousand copies?

      There’s over two decades of sales data there that says these games don’t sell, even on the Juggernaut that was the Wii, look at third party sales, they didn’t make a dent compared to Nintendo software.

      Third parties will still have to compete with Nintendo, they don’t have that problem over at Sony and Microsoft.

      1. That might be the case but it’s still not a good reason to not try to have their next console be up to date with everyone else. You could be wrong & Nintendo actually being on-par with the competition could turn out to be a good thing as 3rd party games sell just as well on the NX as they do on the PS5/XB-whatever they add to the Xbox name. If you are right, well Nintendo won’t be in any better situation than they are now but least then they could say they tried.

        1. The thing that everyone forgets is that Nintendo make thier own games, making a console just for third parties is incredibly counter productive.

          Imagine if Nintendo had that thought process for past consoles, we’d all still be using SNES controllers. Imagine SMB64 with no analogue stick?

          You’re basically asking Nintendo to handicap themselves so that third parties can sell more copies of cod and AC, thats what needs to happen before they start to support the system, they won’t put everything on the nx straight away.

          1. *facepalm* You talk as if Nintendo can’t make a powerful console work to their advantage. Unless Nintendo has become so pathetic over the years that they have to handicap their consoles for their games, they can do BOTH!

  9. I just want them to make something that sells so I don’t have to hear trolls say NINTENDOOMED!!!

    1. Nintendo is Doomed that they had to make toys and cards from keep them from going under

  10. I’m not buying this rumor at all. The Virtual Boy was a complete failure and I really don’t see Nintendo taking another risk like that. I really hope Nintendo shoot this rumor down before people actually start believing it

    1. Somebody (I think Reggie) already hinted that Nintendo is doing its own internal development on VR. He said it during some interview about VR and Occulus Rift I think.

  11. I guess I shouldn’t be aggressive towards this because I haven’t read the original article, but have they missed all three or four times Reggie said VR wasn’t fun, and the many more times Miyamoto has said they have no interest in VR?

    Whatever. It’s Nintendo; not like I’d get a PS or XB anytime soon.

    1. They reference the quotes in the source article and still somehow came to this conclusion.

    2. ALWAYS take what Reggie says with a grain of salt. He’s fucking lied before. “Oh the Wii U won’t have any game droughts in 2015.” Then what the fuck do we have right now, Reggie!? If you think we’re having video game rain, you are more delusional than the people that actually believe the bullshit that comes out of your ass you call a mouth. Just shut the fuck up, you PR, damage controlling bitch!

      @.@ Sorry… Just thinking of Reggie these days pisses me off.

    1. I feel bad for you if you have to force yourself to keep a WiiU. God be with you, son.

  12. I don’t believe in rumor… especially this bullshit. The “Nintendo Cross” is NOT a virtual reality or augmented reality system. It will be a home/portable system that I personally guarantee it’s gonna be a fun, unique, and innovative system. Just wait until Nintendo officially confirms their project next year and the launch of their finalized name of their new system in late 2017/early 2018.

    1. This is not a rumor. It is speculation. Just the same way you just speculated what it is. Speculation is a guess. Rumor is what is suppose to be heard or seen and may or may not be true.

      1. Basically all of the news surrounding the NX has been speculation and there won’t be any truth to it until Nintendo confirms what’s really happening

        1. >>>It will be amusing how many will kneel before the empire once it turns out that the NX is better than their misguided made up speculations>>>

    1. Don’t people say that each year but with a different number. “Oh, can’t wait for nintendo’s E3 2015”. Oh, can’t wait for nintendo’s E3 2011… Same results, crap, crap, mega crap.

  13. Even though they clearly said they have no interest in making Virtual Reality headsets.

    Do you even know what you’re talking about anymore?

  14. I realised something while I was watching the live stream of Monster Hunter X. I think Capcom is gonna port it to the NX (since the name and I think it would make sense as well)

  15. I doubt it seeing how Digi-Capital and Unseen 64 aren’t really trustworthy.
    Case and point, the devs behind “Project HAMMER” confirmed that the game DID NOT exist at all and the “Wii U Metroid” game he talked about… yeah, funny how that was actually a 3DS Metroid game instead.

  16. This is click-bait speculation from another “source” whose reading between the lines too much. And what do you know it’s click-bait here too…

    The article has nothing new to add other than speculate on what Nintendo execs mentioned in interviews.

    Anyway if you read the article it’s obvious he’s getting his ideas from his ass because if he read back to what he has written then he knows Nintendo will not work on VR because most companies are getting their spin on it.

    1. You can tell by some of the titles of these articles that making click-bait is what they’re trying to do. It’s really cheap and their titles can be misleading at times. I’ve been considering moving to a different site solely because of it.

  17. Nice stategy Nintendo. Telling people you hate what virtual reality is right now and then making your own VR/AR system that does what you want it to do. It better be good if this is true. Much better than what Microsoft and everyone else has for gaming.

    1. That’s if by talk about they don’t mean give very little information to make people speculate even more.

  18. Unseen64 also said NOA WOULD NOT publish devil’s third, and nintendo of america IS GOING TO PUBLISH THE GAME! Unseen64 is a lying piece of cock sucking shit, only a brain dead vegetable would believe him.

    1. Or he was telling the truth & Nintendo of America did a 180 because of the backlash to make people think he was lying, saving their asses from the shitstorm they were going to get if they let another game that a ton of people wanted skip our shores. Case in point: Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and, last but not least, Pandora’s Tower. Oh & the shitstorm they are getting right now from people pissed that they can’t get the regular New 3DS with the faceplates.

  19. I just hope NX is playable on tv, never liked the wii mote to be honest, tried playing skyward sword on wii u, and could only play it on small controller with wii mote (facepalm)

  20. Thats cool that this company thinks that, meanwhile nintendo already said its not a vr console, so i dont now which facts they were checking but probably the wrong ones

  21. care fore any more guessing?
    i guess it could also be a loaf of bread, or a fountain, or even a rope ladder attached to a helicopter.
    it could also be a cake!
    but we all know that the cake is a lie.

  22. Please don’t be true. Not because of the VR but because of them agreeing with Unseen64’s rumor that the NX will be weaker than the current consoles out right now.

    1. Well Reggie is known to be a lying, damage controlling PR representative for Nintendo of America, so don’t believe him.

    2. Reggie said that Holograms are boring, however, I don’t see how you could do serious VR without holograms, but Nintendo may surprise me yet again…

  23. I don’t get it anymore. Are some people flat out bat-shit crazy? Nintendo’s already said they don’t think that the type of tech if ready yet. I swear if Nintendo came out & said the NX would be blue, you’d see an article days later “From extensive research we’ve discovered the NX will be pink with flowers”…and everyone listen to THAT instead of what the manufacturer told them. I don’t get it.

  24. I just hope the NX while is currently in R&D they nake necessary adjustments according to the forever changing market. It was stupid in 2008 noy to make adjustments when Wii U was in R&D and then release it like 2008 was 2015. That was stupid.

  25. For everyone who keeps talking about the Virtual Boy saying Nintendo can’t ever do VR right, they need to be quiet and realize we’re not still living in the 20th century. The Virtual Boy was, what, 20 – 25 years ago? Maybe more? C’mon people, technology has progressed since then. Welcome to 2015.
