That's really cool! If only everyone was excited about it as this guy. Then it may have lasted and gotten a ton of games.

Wow, a video posted by MasterOfPuppets has a shameless Metallica ripoff song about 10:20 in :p. Or so I think.

Anyway, I've never seen this before! Really good video, yet I can't help but notice the lack of actual gameplay footage Nintendo added. There was an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto on Nintendo's site (I think...) where he made a comment that marketing VB more as a novelty/toy than a next-gen 32 bit gaming powerhouse would have been much better. Watching this video in early '95 or whatever would probably have given many people inflated expectations for the system.

On a positive note, how great to see the prototype model with multicolored buttons in action!

I laughed at one of the kids there yelling out "It's all in red!" positively...

And they flat out lied when they said it "envelops your field of vision". I wish it did.

Still, that light table introduction was friggin epic!

Oh and the office guy looked like Bob Zemeckis.

Anybody "freeze-frame" the video, and look at the "red Virtual Boy images"? I can't figure out where they're from; suspect they're just bogus artwork...

This is my favorite. I'm also sure he's playing teleroboxer.

I remember this guy from the Donkey Kong Country Video. Equally as fun. I think they were really going for what it could be like not what it was like. I would of been more impressed w/ real game footage.
