WELCOME TO PLANET VIRTUAL BOY!
HTTP://WWW.PLANETVB.COM

Welcome to the third dimension! On this site you will learn everything about Nintendo's Virtual Reality experiment, the Virtual Boy. Released back in 1995 only in Japan and North America, the system failed all along the line and disappeared from the market less than a year later, quietly and without any official word. Only 22 games were released for the Virtual Boy during its short lifespan. Here we want to build a memorial for this unique oddity of videogame history. Dedicated to its brilliant creator, Gunpei Yokoi.

ViBE released!

My prayers were heard, yesterday the long-awaited ViBE Virtual Boy emu for Macintosh was surprisingly released! The emulator developed by Richard Bannister und Gil Pedersen had been in the making for quite a long time, but after promising screens and videos it suddenly disappeared from the homepage of the developers a few month ago. It was considered dead by most Virtual Boy fans, so these news are even more pleasing... Hopefully it was no April Fools joke. The present version 1.0b1 is an early release, but it's said to emulate all VB games and updates are also on the way. So, if you're on of those lucky Mac owners, grab your copy now at www.bannister.org.

In other news we now have a chat online, after DogP came up with the idea on the board. Our idea is to install the chat on all Virtual Boy pages to give Virtual Boy fans a chance to meet in a general chatroom. You can also reach it at chat.vr32.de. Let's see how this develops...

Last but not least I want to let you all know that the PHSCologram is not (longer?) for sale.
