    I saw this at a toy sale for $100. I wish I had $100 at the time...

    I had this, but I only played two games, so I'm not sure how bad the system itself was.

    They dont know what they are talking about! The REAL challenge was actually playing that thing!

    But nowadays, Nintendo pretends like they never even made that thing, and thats probably a good thing. "

    I couldn't agree more!!!! doesn't Virtual cause low sperm count....

    Sonic64:Oh god, you won't want to play one of those things(Virtual Boy). They give you many problems, such as headaches, & other bad things, even blindness.

    Ah yes, I've heard about the Virtual Boy. Never got to play it, but that's probably a good thing.

    I'm sure there are many unreported cases of virtual boy related brain tumors and blindness.

    This was one of my favorite VG commercials because of that "Under Siege" music they played in the background.

    Lol, too expensive.


    I got one near launch, but by the end KB Toys was selling them for $25.

    Teleroboxer was fun though, it was kind of the last "Punch Out"

    I remember getting a Virtual Boy for my Birthday back in 1995 when it was New. I used to love that Mario Tennis

    The VB Was frickin awesome!
    Im still trying to buy one.
    The VB was cancelled because it was too frickin expensive, and the graphics were in red and black because if they were gonna use colors, it would make the thing even more expensive. Plus, parents in japan were worried about there childrens eyesite.
    But over here in the US, We say "SCREW OUR VISION!!!" And play it.

    Well it is true that this system does cause headaches and in rare cases blindness, it was ok for a system. I still have mine and I still think Teleroboxer is the best game for it. Though I wish my eyes could stand the image for more than a few minutes.

    Why is this in the 80s commercials? The Virtual Boy came about in the 90s.

    I remember wanting one of these things, considering the fact that I AM a pretty big Nintendo fan! My mother was going to get it for me one Christmas until she found out that it gives you seizures and violent headaches if you play it for too long. The games look pretty cool, but I don't think it lasted that long...

      Cobb: But Bruce Lee is dead.
      McCready: Then get his brother.
