Stumbled across an article on 1Up.com that discusses three failed systems, why (they believe) the systems failed, and what (they believe) would have saved them.

Could anyone write an article on this subject and not talk about the Virtual Boy?

Yes WWW

Though I think it would be legitimate either way, since you see either "www.nintendo.com" or "support.nintendo.com" on game covers and manuals now. (when looking to the "Need help..." section)

There's something about it without the WWW that just doesn't look right to me.

I knew I couldn't have been the only member to mention this, I guess I should've looked outside the "Offtopic" section of the forum.

Aside from the previews and sneak peeks, anytime I see that movie poster with the robot behind Hugh Jackman, the opening of Teleroboxer with the robot rising in the background keeps flashing in my head.

I would go see this movie, but I know I'm gonna be disappointed when the final fight in the movie isn't against a vicious cat robot...

Anyone else seen the previews for this and thought the title should be "Teleroboxer"?

Think DreamWorks should be giving some royalties to Nintendo R&D for this one.

I can't really offer much since I'm one of the creators, but if you haven't already - you could spend some time on "the wayback machine".

I know it's not the same as getting a written account of how it all began from one of the site's creators, but it's still fun to kind of see how the site has "evolved" over the years.

Haha! Good one... I especially like the line:

"From an anonymous source at a first party development studio"

I'm still in the highscore top 10 (I thought), but that badge is gone for me. I'm not a really a badge collector, so I'm not complaining, but if this is a lingering bug I thought I should say something.

Agreed.



@KR155E-It is pretty theoretical, that's why I bring it up. I'd been thinking about it for awhile now and wanted to see what the site's administrator thought, or if it had already been thought about.
