I've never seen tabs on VB games (but I only collect JP), did they definitely come with them?

Come to think of it, I've not seen sealed US VB games either..

Here's the thing - I get why a CIB release is not part and why it is not offered - all sorts of advantages to that.

However, you're missing out in the 'no-brainer' impulse factor that having a CIB in there would bring.
More people would back it because it is almost no risk, you'll have lots of resellers wanting in of course if you do (which has both pros and cons I should note).

I would support with $100 without a CIB, but at least double that if there was a CIB, but it would need to be a genuine target (albeit not a certified promise) from the start.

If you know that your captive audience is relatively low in numbers, then you need to receive as much investment as possible form each individual, and a CIB target release (at least a soft-promise) is the most direct way to go.

I thought this was a registry for various 2015 projects and their respective threads?

I wish more people realised that sticking something in a case with a sticker doesn't increase the value 1000%

That's right in terms of asking prices for VGA-graded items, but it's also right in that it's stupidly overpriced - because all VGA-graded items are stupidly overpriced.

You could get a brand new stock unplayed JP VB on eBay easily for 20% of that cost.

Welcome! A new old stock unit is going to cost mega bucks.

I bought a like new boxed JP model 3 years back for about £150 with some game sand shipping etc - but there are definitely cheaper options.

Well, it's not a Nintendo console at heart - it IS a Nintendo console, however over the years it's always been the ugly child, always hidden at the back as a reminder of fragility.

So that's what it means, it signals that the company are being a bit more accepting of the VB, on a system where the pros (and cons) are more obvious and relative.

Given the question has been asked about VB games on the Virtual Console before - this will be seen as a hint, and therefore Nintendo knowing this (and still including it) is a positive sign, albeit a small one.

So, I was never suggesting it shouldn't be included - only that it is interesting that it's included.

New theme shows some old consoles~~

Unusual for the VB to show up in these kinds of things, not holding my breath for VB emulation, but crossing fingers...

What do you mean by any UK game? Any modern or retro games from the UK generally? Or is UK an abbreviation for something else?

Figured I'd ask, I hope I'm not missing something obvious.
