The classic Blockbuster-style video stores return | Digital Trends Spanish

Those who grew up in the 1990s were the last to take advantage of video stores. These stores, like the famous Blockbuster, offered the rental of VHS movies and later also video games and DVDs. Soon the most nostalgic will be able to relive those memories with a new virtual reality game, it's called The Last Video Store and has been announced for PlayStation VR. As seen in the trailer, in-game you'll be able to walk through the corridors full of tapes, grabbing and going through every single movie you pull off the shelves — like The evil dead Y Mac and Me—and watch movies with other users in a movie theater or virtual living room. The idea is attractive, but who knows how it will eventually work because of the licenses. According to the description of the trailer, if you don't want t...

The Virtual Boy reached a year on the market before Nintendo discontinued it and in total it sold less than 800,000 units. To have a parameter: in a year it sold fewer units than the Nintendo Switch in any month. What kind of console exactly was the Virtual Boy?
