Virtual Boy (RG)

Nintendo's most signifcant hardware failure and the machine many of attacked but few have actually played, the Virtual Boy was the last console that Game Boy creator Gunpei Yokoi worked on before he left the company.

This feature takes a look back at the development of the machine and the reasons for its dismal commercial performance. I also talk exclusively to Virtual Boy developers about what they really thought about Nintendo's headache-inducing flop.
