A story about Virtual Boy, 15 years later

Paul Gale Network writes, "On August 14th, 1995, Nintendo released the Virtual Boy in North America, coming just one month after its Japanese launch. Suffice to say, neither in the US, Japan, nor anywhere in the world really did this console/handheld hybrid take off."

I thought my eyes were fried forever. I couldn't go to sleep for weeks without closing my eyes and seeing red outlines of Nintendo character. Yah happy b-day.

I like to remember him as the guy who made Metroid.

It's a crazy thought but what if Nintendo released VB games as part of a virtual console service on the 3DS?
I can see it happening if Nintendo wants some nostalgia points and doesn't mind reminding g people of their one really failed system. I never owned one but would buy VC games if they had such a service.

I wish I bought one when I had the chance at Toys R Us. They were on sale for 40 new several years ago as a way to get rid of old inventory. It wasn't a great system but for the fact that I would have a complete collection of all Nintendo systems it would be worth it.

I still have my Virtual Boy :). Granted, it was a waste of money when I got it, but I was just a kid and loved it for a few months. And I'm glad now that I did buy it, as its a bit of a collectors item.

I still plan on buying a virtual boy eventually for my collection. It'll sit right next to my Atari Jaguar collection.

You have to complete the collection as do I. There are still a few systems I don't have yet but need to gather up.
