Now I've heard of a new system that Nintendo is comming out with in 2005 possably 2006. Never have I heard rumours of another "Virtual" system. I would love it if they did. I love my VB I finally found a site dedicated to this system today and also finally got my 2nd virtual boy to start experimenting on making a head mounted unit, but for some reason I doubt a 2nd Virtual Boy will ever see light. I would love it if it did but highly doubt it.

Well... new interesting quotes: Yesterday, Japan's Mainichi Shimbun newspaper asked Mr. Iwata "The 'new product of a different nature' that will be unveiled this Spring -- what kind of game is it?", and he answered "Game creation has in various ways, met a deadlock, over the past twenty years, games have followed a straight path in development that have made them more complex and good looking. This law of growth and success is no more. Put frankly, games have stopped selling. We want to offer to customers a play experience that they've never had before. We're not expecting everyone to cheer following the announcement. It's okay if ten percent of the people say the product is 'interesting' and word spreads with people finding themselves wanting to try it." Continuing on the specific nature of the product, Iwata stated: "We want to make a game that returns to the point that anyone can play it. However, our company does not support a product that combines software and hardware into one. The product uses a platform, but it does not fit into the specifications of the current hardware platforms."

Just because they don't plan to take advantage of the 2 screens for stereoscopy, doesn't mean a 3rd party or hobbyist can't.

As long as the screens are equal in size, capabilities, and vertical position, it shouldn't be hard at all. It'll just be a bit harder to fuse the two images. Although, depending on the shape of the device, it might be possible to fashion an HMD from it.

I definitely think their idea of two completely different images is retarded, but anything with even the capability of stereoscopy is okay in my book.

I'll wait until i've seen it to pass judgement.

HI

I'd love to see it but I don't think I will:

The whole real 3D industrie is not going well anyway. I bought a pair of virtual IO 3D glasses years ago. It was such a flop they gave this to me for 180 swissfrancs headtracker inclusive(new in store). Initial price of bouth over 2000. even now though tecnology has encreased noone wants to buy stuff like that and there is no support from the gaming industrie. Don't know why. But one good thing. Nvidea has brought out a stero plugin for g-force cards that allow tho play any 3d game in stereo. It's a lot of fun playing UT 2004 or gothic 2. Havent tried farcry yet. Problem. Res. max. is 640x480 and the pixels aren't propperly connected. What I mean is you get thin black bars between them making it look like neogeo arcade. Still happy to have bought this at that time. the only real support at that time were hexen(diden't like it) and descent. There is a new version of the i-glasses by now. 600x800 isent too good though.

Have fun

I just love stereo

It has graphics of the N64 on the top screen and just 2D graphics on the bottom (for maps and stuff)

It really is a COMPLETELY different system from the v-boy
