15 years later, the Virtual Boy is back

But this time no one is laughing. Hardcore game developers/publishers who aren’t the usual suspects for Nintendo handhelds are falling all over themselves to make games for it, if the list of games lined up for it so far is any indicator. It’s a disruptive masterpiece, and has had Nintendo getting all the attention at E3 this year, even before the show floor opened.

Nintendo 3DSI’m eager to see it in action. It seems like a day one purchase to me, and now that I think of it, I won’t be surprised if it is sold out for an extended period of time, as the Wii was. My current guess is an MSRP of around $180 (hopefully less, but nothing’s been announced about price yet), and hopefully a release around November 2010, though it could be sometime in 2011. If it does sell out (if it’s a holiday 2010 release I think it will definitely sell out until sometime in 2011 at least), I won’t be surprised to see people pay $300 for it on ebay.

Nintendo’s domination will continue…

Update: it begins…
