Nintendo NX delayed to add VR capabilities?

Word is going around that Nintendo delayed mass production of its new NX console to early 2017, about a half year later than the company's original plan. DigiTimes heard Nintendo is taking extra time to enhance the gaming experience and add virtual reality function into the system.

The NX console will reportedly be manufactured by Foxconn and previous leaks claim it will use a Pascal-based Tegra chip from NVIDIA. DigiTimes heard the NX will be sort of a hybrid console, users will be able to connect it to a TV but it will also be usable as a mobile gaming product thanks to the integration of a 5- to 7-inch display.
The sources pointed out that the supply chain received Nintendo's notification to start developing mold for the Nintendo NX in the mid-2015 and was told that the system would enter mass production and launch in the mid-2016. However, Nintendo has recently given them a new mass production schedule and asked them to start mass producing some key components at the end of 2016.

Nintendo's order volume for the game console has also been reduced. Nintendo originally planned to order 20 million units for the first year, but its shipment target is now only 9.5-10 million units. The sources believe the reduction was due to the fact that video game console market has been shrinking and concerns triggered by its Wii U's unsatisfactory shipment performance of two million units in 2015.
