I'm just kind of curious, but how long has everyone here had their Virtual Boy?

I actually just got mine on the 31st of last month and pretty much have wanted it since it came out. You see, Mom wasn't too keen on the price tag and me going blind back then. Haha! However now that I have it I've been addicted to it like crack!

I've had 3 but got the first on in fall 2008. Wario Land, Red Alarm and V-Tetris hooked me from the start.

I've had my Virtual Boy since December 2009, I bought it on eBay for $199.95 (with Free Shipping ) unused with the included Mario's Tennis, it took awhile until I got some other games for it but eventually found Teleroboxer, Red Alarm and Galactic Pinball in a 3 game lot auction! later on I got Mario's Tennis (Japanese) and Virtual League Baseball (sealed)! and now I'm waiting for Mario Clash, Virtual Boy Wario Land, Vertical Force (Japanese), V-Tetris (Japanese... as it was only released in Japan) and Teleroboxer (which I already have Teleroboxer but the lot of games was a moneysaver so it was worth it...) to come in the mail!

I really love my Virtual Boy!

other stuff: am I also the only (currently) active female member on Planet Virtual Boy?

I got mine when they were clearanced back in '96 or '97. I rented one when it first came out in '95, but couldn't justify the $180 price tag.

I've had mine since June of 2009. I came across it at a thrift store near my house for $30 with 2 games. Prior to that my only experience with one was playing a demo of Red Alarm on one in a Toys R' Us back when they were new. I originally bought it for the sheer novelty but after really tying it out I loved it!

I've had mine since the summer '96 clearance, along with some of the most common games which were $10-$15 each.

I've had my Virtual Boy for exactly a month now. I was slightly apprehensive when I heard all the stuff that people said about the Virtual Boy, but I was relieved when most of its bad points were actually wrong.

Mine was from Blockbuster, with the hardcase, battery pack, AC adapter, and 6 games:

*Mario's Tennis
*Vertical Force
*Golf
*Virtual League Baseball
*Jack Bros
*Waterworld

The case and all 6 of the games had sitckers on them in one way or another. (4 had price stickers, Mario's Tennis had a "Please Rewind/Purchase if this sticker is broken" sticker on it, and VLB had two small silver "Purchase if sticker broken" stickers on it

When I started playing the games, I felt like I was actually back in 1995, renting the Virtual Boy for the first time.

My siblings and I rented one from blockbuster back in the day. I wasn't fortunate enough to get one for christmas that year, nor was I old enough to spend that kind of money on one myself. I bought my first one on ebay in 2003 for $13. I now own 6 (4 are in pieces).

@ gunpeiyokoifan
Nice set you got! And from what I've seen so far (which isn't exactly a long time but we'll just pretend it is for the effect) you are such the only chicka, so you definitely have that going. :P

@ HonkeyKong
Wow, $30? What a steal! Is it in good shape?

@ T-SqProductions
Did that all come together as a set when you got it?!

@ VBSAM
Haha 6? Have you done messed around with making a link cable yet? And nice netting it at $13! And here I thought me getting mine at $90 pretty mint was rockin. Haha!

And awesomeness to everyone else too! Seems like we got a lot of new owners according to the poll at the moment... GLaD I'm not the only one first getting to experience this so late. :P
