I thought it was the new Dreamcast. Guess that doom line was getting old.

I came here to say the same thing :). Seems it's anything but a Wii U! Shame, considering it is actually, a Wii U. Talk about confusing.

Virtual Boy was just plain shit because of the red colour, and no good comfortable way to use it. If it had colour even like the NES or SNES even it would've done much better. And had more support.

But comparing Wii u to the Virtual Boy is just dumb.

Handheld that required flat surface to set it up on, less then 30 games, gave headaches, ate AA batteries, discontinued in less then a year (sold 1.26 million), no must have games, Cost almost as much as a PS1.

Sorry i don't really see how you can compare the two other then minor 1 point here and there, very nit picky video with the info presented to stitch this "theory" together.
