Why do people like to compare this to the Virtual Boy so much despite it's sold more units and has a larger game library.

The 3DS looks nothing like a Virtual Boy.

You may want to get that pudding out of your eyes and ears if you think they are the same.

Probably has to do with lack of intelligence.

not a fair comparison, virtual boy failed because of the concept and the practicality-it couldve had the best lineup on earth, and it still wouldve failed.

The 3DS sold more in its first hour and had more games at launch than the Virtual Boy ever did.

Virtual Boy was discontinued in Japan 5 months after it's release. The 3DS is most likely going to soar in sales after the price drop. End of story.

Ok, you kids, look:

1. The entire gimmick the console is based around sort of sucks and hurts your eyes if you play it too long.

2. It sold much less units than expected.

3. There aren't many games for it, and maybe 4 or 5 good ones.

4. Nintendo dropped the price pretty soon after launch.

The 3DS looks nothing like a Virtual Boy.

You may want to get that pudding out of your eyes and ears if you think they are the same.


That's the comment of the year. I love Gamefaqs.
