Heh, seconding that NES comment - I think Nintendo Age sums that up pretty well.

Having said that - the Japanese side (Famicom) of NES collecting is much, much friendlier in the west, and I've been visiting FamicomWorld.com daily for ten years now, they are a great bunch and there's nothing like the elitism and passive aggression you see on Nintendo Age there.

For any NES fans, the Famicom is also a better machine to play and collect for (if I can put my bias to one side), for many reasons.

Informing me they were sending my details to Capcom. That sort of thing.


I'm staggered by this - were they threats that if you DIDN'T give one then this would happen? Very immature and foolish behaviour...

As Thunder said, Minestorm, I think we're all very thankful that you're here and while we're on the topic I'd also like to express long-term thanks and gratitude. Because of you, I can play my favourite game in the world in glorious red and black 3D!

By the way, Retro Gamer mag has a Street Fighter cover article this month - I was really hoping that Hyper Fighting VB would be in it!

There won't be any more full HF's ever. It's been a bit of a nightmare to be honest. I had threats from people, and Capcom definitely do chase up copyrights.



What the hell kind of threats? That is not on, the hell's wrong with people?

I'm with RunnerPack, especially if there was more than one LED so that they could flash in a 'flowing' sequence.

Batteries on these don't last long, so that would make sense too.

I don't think there's any kind of connecting data hidden away that would interest a VB historian as such, as it is just an LED on a badge. A remote control would need a much bigger PCB for example.

Thanks for the snaps - I like them, if only you could swap the KS for letters VB :)

In seriousness, you could probably get some Virtual branding applied somewhere somehow. There are similar headphones that allow the plates to be switched out etc.

Does anyone offer this service for the UK or Europe?

I have a broken VB that I can't diagnose...
