I think VR is a bigger deal than Kinect. Imagine playing Mario Kart, but actually being in the game! Want to see if there's a red shell coming? Just turn your head! :D To me this seems more similar to Wii than Kinect. Wii was Nintendo's best selling home console. To me at least, the "gimmick" never wore off. I still think playing with a Wii remote and Nunchuk is really innovative and fun. And like Arvester said, the reason 3DS sells is because of buttons, dual screens and 3D. Soon it'll take more of an edge to compete with phones. VR seems like the solution to me.

That controller patent looks kinda cool. I wonder what Nintendo's planning..

You're right thunderstruck, I was just basing that on how things were going back in the time of the price drop but I guess Nintendo caught back up. Is Kinect really a failure?

I've been thinking, with the Wii U and 3DS's kind of disappointing sales, along with strong competition from smartphones and PCs, Nintendo might need to do a bit more than "innovating" the home and portable console as they have with Wii U and 3DS. Don't get me wrong they're good. But it's not enough anymore. So, what if Nintendo recognizes the excitement about devices like the Oculus Rift (Especially Playstation VR, a product made by Nintendo's competitor), and decides to make their own VR? I doubt they'd make it reminiscent of the VB in any way. I can imagine playing Nintendo games on a VR headset with a controller similar to the Wii remote and Nunchuk. Really it sounds kind of fun! What do you guys think?

Hmm... So the only real solution is remaking the chip itself. I'm not sure, but I think silicon processors are expensive to produce in low quantities. Like I've said before, the folks over at 3dbrew.org were trying to decap the 3ds SoC. They started a fundraiser for it, so it must not be cheap. Whether the PVB community could do that kind of thing I don't know, but after that all there would be left to do would be copying the circuit into a computer.

Perhaps not your exact words but when you said it could be done with an FPGA it made it sound easier than I though it was.

Although the V810 is no longer produced (I only know of 2 devices that used it), it is a MIPS processor, right? So there's probably a modern processor that would be compatible. The plus side to that is extra processing power for homebrew.

And about the custom instructions issue, perhaps just running the CPU faster to compensate for the interrupts? The only other solution to that seems to be making our own CPU. How much does it cost to make silicon chips?

So I know the VB CPU is not a stock V810, it has some modifications. I remember DogP saying remaking the VB would be easy, and that makes sense, because COTS cloning has been done by companies before. But is there a COTS version of the V810, or a compatible variant?

I would use mednafen, I just don't believe in multi-system emus. They're always best at emulating one console, and I'd rather use different emus for the other ones. Plus it doesn't have a gui.

No it's not in Kirby's Adventure. What are the controls for this ROM you uploaded?

I'm just using it to make music. It's too bad none of the emulators available have good sound emulation. Maybe someone could combine the virtual boy sound generator with one of the available emus.
