Virtual Boy Rumor Debunking

Lately there has been a lot of false trash rumors going around about the Virtual Boy, and I'm here to debunk them.

Rumor: The Virtual Boy is not fun.
Reality: On the contrary! According to a recent survey, ten out of ten people find the Virtual Boy fun. It is so fun, that it comes bundled with a Wii Remote and is fully compatible with it.

Rumor: The Virtual Boy was a failiure.
Reality: NOT TRUE! The Virtual Boy sold more than 70 billion units, more than any other electronic device, ever. That's nearly twelve units sold for every human being alive today. The Virtual Boy also had superior third party support and churned out a library of over ten thousand games including classics like Super Mario 128, Halo 4 and Metal Gear Solid 7.

Rumor: The Virtual Boy has a monochrome red screen.
Reality: NOT TRUE! The Virtual Boy could display its graphics in vivid 512 bit color, more colors than actually in existence.

Rumor: The Virtual Boy causes headaches, vision problems, severed limbs, and other medical problems.
Reality: NOT TRUE! This was due to a typo that originally occured in the original Virtual Boy manual. The actual warning read: CAUTION. USE OF THE VIRTUAL BOY SYSTEM WILL PREVENT HEADACHES, MIGRAINES, WORLD HUNGER, AIDS AND CANCER. FOR BEST RESULTS, PLEASE USE IN AN AREA WITH DANGEROUS MATERIALS AND SHARP OBJECTS. After the mistake was realized years later, the NOA employee who made the manual was promptly gassed to death by Miyamoto himself.

Rumor: The Virtual Boy "has bad graphics."
Reality: That's because you've never played it! Play the Virtual Boy for yourself, and you will see that its advanced 3D graphics are rendered more beautifully than any console or graphics card can do. Each Virtual Boy has the approximate graphical processing power of nearly seventy million Nvidia 8800 Ultras combined. Virtual Boy is so advanced that it can't be viewed on conventional TV or LCD screens.

Memorial to Gunpei Yokoi, the Great Founder

How about the one where you throw up in pain and then start bleeding from your eyes? What was it called? Xcailibear or something like that.

I remember in elementary school, we went on a field trip. One kid brought this with him on the bus and was playing it on the bus.

I had this when I was little and it did indeed give me headaches. I ended up selling. It was really fun though. Except for the headaches.

I hd a robot boxing game, a wario game, mario tennis, and i think one more but i don't remember now, maybe pinball?

I've played Virtual Boy Wario Land sometime ago, excellent game. Everything else I tried mimicked tech demos. I did try WL on the emulator but it lost something from it.

Surprised that this was by Nintendo and not some no mark company.

VECTOR FOR THE WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN
