The Reality of Virtual Boy

After Nintendo achieved world-shaking success with its Game Boy handheld system, a next-generation follow-up seemed inevitable. Yet few could have predicted the form it would take—or how poorly it would fare with critics and consumers alike. That device, Virtual Boy, stands as a rare black mark on Nintendo’s long legacy of console hardware: An abject commercial failure, retired after only half a year of life. But was it really as bad as all that? 25 years after Virtual Boy’s rocky launch, this book provides a comprehensive and open-minded exploration of the Virtual Boy and its library from start to finish.

Packed with history, critiques, direct-feed screenshots, and complete packaging photography for the console’s entire library (and then some), this is the definitive chronicle of Virtual Boy’s history.

Thanks, bought it.

The sample PDF has the table of contents, it says there are 4 pages dedicated to unreleased games. Personally, that’s what I’m most interested in, could anyone who bought it tell me if there is any new information or screenshots published in this book? Thanks

I bought it, but it’s not yet arrived to post a review. I could’ve sworn I read at point of order that they were complete, printed, in stock and ready to go out the door – has anyone else received theirs yet?

Not yet. Still waiting – but also haven’t gotten any email updates….

I received a shipping update just today, it shipped out from the States yesterday in fact. So looks like others’ should also be on their way today / or soon at least.
