Matpat, best known as the Game Theorist on Youtube, explains why the Wii U is failing, and how the Virtual Boy predicted the Wii U's failure 2 decades ago. Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it.
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.
This is so true!
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.
Cant please everybody , but must say if you are missing out on Super mario 3d world and DK tropical freeze , i feel for you.
Title is a bit harsh in my opinion. Didn't know Bayonetta 2 could run on a Virtual Boy. They'd probably have to massively downgrade the graphics. Then everyone would be pissed.. and can you imagine the resolution?! -_-
20i upscaled to 160i
Leave WiiU alone please...I'm no means a nintendo fan this Gen after the Wiiu...BUT...It serves its purpose...ts a great little system and my son plays it and loves it. When more games come out it will do well...No where near the Wii...But it will have its place. I just hope Nintendo has learned their lesson....
Wii U has already sold 5 times what the virtual boy did.
Sounds like game theorist has a bad taste in his mouth from wii and is a little biased because for being a nintendo fan he has no problem grasping at straws to compare it to a game console that is one of the worst in history. He does not even the current price and free game bundles, as well as ignore all the damn games on the system like they dont exist. I am normally a fan of the channel but that video is by far my least favorite game theory yet
Ummm... virtual boy only sold 1.26 million world wide.

That's not even a theory. It's just a straight up lie.
