Toying with the idea of getting a PS4, but a few things have been keeping me from delving too far into modern gaming (Have a Wii U.) My main concern is that i'm really cheap and will not/refuse to pay for an online monthly subscription service for online gaming. How much functionality does the PS4 have if you don't pay to be a member of PSN Gold or whatever it is? I play one player games or local multiplayer with friends, I really have no interest in online gaming. Even for free on the Wii U I pretty much never use it. Also, the PS4 seems to have taken a step back from the PS3 in multi media capability (Still enjoying my 1st gen PS3 fat.) Does it play 3D blu rays? Can you still stream media from a USB stick? What about always online requirement games? I have my gaming room in my basement and it will be Wifi only. Will that create lag and problems if I am trying to play one player games that are required to be online. Can I take a PS4 game to a friends house to play it, or is that no longer a thing? I am interested in the PS4 mainly for it's VR capabilities, which I view to be the first real progress in gaming in a long time over just "slightly sharper graphics" each generation. But if the hassles are too big forget it, don't really want to deal with most of the pratfalls of modern gaming (pay for online, updates, dlc, always online, in game purchases, pay to win, etc. etc. etc.). Of the two modern consoles the PS4 seems less cumbersome in this regard than the Xbone and that's why i'm asking. Thanks!
The Virtual Boy was a critical and commercial failure, one of Nintendo's few. That being said, like other niche consoles it holds a place in the heart of many. Because it was a Nintendo system there were at least a few good games for it (Warioland being my favorite, an excellent platformer.) There is also a decent homebrew scene for the virtual boy, and even someone who created link cables for two player action that Nintendo never got around to making. So please, share your virtual boy memories, news, collections, and thoughts here!

Dave Nunez has a PHD in Computer Science & Virtual Reality (VR) & helps answer the questions: Why is VR so hard? Why is it so expensive? And which VR setup should gamers get? What are your thoughts on VR? Will it die like it did in the 90s? Or is now the perfect time for VR to become....reality?!
