Not saying it's useless, it certainly offers great functionality for younger audiences, but I don't think Labo as it is now, will be anything more than a gimmick.
..And who could forget dear Ratboy.
I don't know if it was overhyped. The moment I seen it, I thought it was garbage and destined to fail. It's a bit early for the obituaries but, ya, barring some sort of miracle it'll be remembered in years to come as, "Do you remember when Nintendo tried to sell us cardboard with some tacked on shallow, garbage games?" "No!? Me neither."
Overhyped? Certainly not on here. It was one of the rare occasions where the haters and fanboys agreed on something; that it would fail.
Labo is one of the dumbest ideas in recent memory when it comes to gaming. Why would I spend that kind of money on cardboard gimmicks when I could just buy a real remote control car for less, a crappy keyboard for less, etc...
Just wait for Nintendo forcing us to use them as the only available controller for upcoming games for generations to come. I hope they've learned from the Wii and won't do this, but who knows?
Consoles shouldn't be about 480p, 720p, 1080p or the prettiest slideshow.
They're about a magical box that outputs wonderful streams of 60 images per second.
Lolabo. Even the weebs couldn't defend it. $80 shovelware with a side of cardboard, gtfo with that s***.

Interest died fast enough
Has it? What about the hobbyist DIY crowd?
They realized that there are better alternatives out if you're just a little interested in this stuff... and also, they realized it's f'ing cardboard :D
Yeah, that’s not what i remember. People were laughing at it. Few people cared or defended it.
This. The topic creator must've been living under a rock the whole time leading up to Labo's release.

It depends on the summer camp. Like an educational one with a few kits that they share. I even gave the option of Nintendo selling it in bulk as a possibility.
I even said they have hurdles. Like Jesus Christ, don't overreact.
All the hype came from the fanboys. Nintendo even claimed it was for the younger (or young at heart) audience. It was all the idiots on here that were like “LABO FOR SMASH BROS!” and “WATCH! LABO IS GOING TO OUTSELL GOD OF WAR!!1!1”. Nintendo didn’t overhype this, everyone else did.
