Oh geez, the Virtual Boy, I forgot I even had that! I agree, it was their first seriously heavy flop. If they had held out a year or two to either develop a color system or reduce it's size things might have been different. I don't regret buying one, but I wish I had held out for a few more months when everything dropped in price as stores tried to dump their surplus inventory (and had some surplus income to hunt down those few games that existed state-side for the system, there were around 20 right?) A side note; I remember the Galactic Pinball game I had for it was great, despite the red-only scheme and bulky unit. I actually spent many hours and many batteries playing through the various levels, and might even dig out the system just to give it a go again. It almost justifies buying the console, and was the only pinball game I really enjoyed playing besides Sega's Game Gear version of Sonic Pinball (or was it Spinball?)
