it also makes me very sad theres no red & black version... and I keep being told by some people "does the color of the 3DS really matter?" it does to me! I wanted to give tribute to the Virtual Boy!

Am I the only person that would have bought this?
Red & Black > Color

I'd pay a premium for a 3DS with only a Red & Black display.

Umm..... I wouldn't go that far. The $250 price tag is bad enough...

Looks like I'll have to wait until kids start jamming keys into 3DS cartridge slots and repair parts become readily available on eBay... (Plus, I could combine Red and Black 3DSes to get a VB themed one that way!)

Meh, Virtual Bowling is about the cost of 4 3DS units.

Man, I haven't seen a picture of a GBA SP in forever. Brings me back...! It was the first system I bought new, totally with my own money (no parental assistance). I was in high school when they came out.

Those were the days...

(OT: Preordered my black 3DS earlier today! I love blue - the GBA SP I bought was blue - but the shade they went for on the 3DS is just horrid.)

that would be so cool if they did that (or at least a Red & Black 3DS (not the screen color but the color its painted) bundled with a cartridge full of Virtual Boy remakes! (which could have red/black play mode and new color play mode))

Yeah, Virtual Boy Wario Land in color on the 3DS would be awesome.

I remember that IGN article, I got excited while reading the article, until I found out it was a joke.
I hate how IGN is always making bad jokes like that about the VB. Like the one at the end of the article "The apocryphal Virtual Boy Game Boy Advance will launch for $199.99. It will quickly drop in price to $99.99, then $49.99, eventually hitting clearance aisles and outlet stores for $29.99 before disappearing into obscurity six months after its release"
The system did not disappear into obscurity six months after its release, some stores like Wal Mart had VB games and systems long after it got discontinued.
I bet if the 3DS fails (Which hopefully won't happen) they will then make references in unreleated articles, and critise the system for no reason at all like they do with the VB. Eventhough now they are talking about the 3DS like it's the best thing on earth.

Déjà vu, eh? I'll bet my pennies that a few reviewers dislike it because of supposed "headaches".
