Nintendo President: VR Not Ready For The Mainstream

Am I the only one that was really surprised to hear Reggie Fils-Aime say that VR isn't ready for mainstream consumers? I think most people can agree that VR is just taking off but I was still taken back by Fils-Aime's comments.

Last year at E3, the biggest complaint Nintendo president and CEO Reggie Fils-Aime had about virtual reality was that it simply wasn't fun. That may have changed a bit, because as Fils-Aime told Bloomberg West yesterday, his concern about VR now is about how mass market the tech can be. "In my judgment, I think VR is a bit further out there for mainstream, mass market applications and applications that consumers can invest a lot of time in versus short snacks of entertainment," Fils-Aime said.
