Best bet to confirm would probably be to check recorded news stories from the launch.

I got mine on the 29th, I think. It's a solid piece, doesn't feel fragile at all. Grips the controller male end very firmly. I think it uses a micro USB B. At first I thought I'd have to go get a cable for it, but my phone uses the same thing. :-D After plugging that in, I found it worked right off the bat for most applications. There's a Virtual Boy-related program I have that it didn't initially work for, but XPadder got it working without any fuss. It even works without batteries. There really are no other controllers with the same layout as a VB controller, so this is the best option.

For those of you who want to use XPadder, you can use these attached images I edited to look nice and work for it. One is full color, the other saves a few KB by using a 256-color palette (in case 30 KB matters to you, LOL).

Yeah, that is a good story. I had some family and friends over to see Star Wars, and they tried out my VB. They liked it, and thought the controller was ahead of its time.

The system was practically made for a Metroid. The dual D-Pads would be great for it, the depth, extensive use of red and black... Yeah, it is a go-to game. Not sure about Mars specifically. It would be like setting Zelds in Germany or something.

I think the VB controller is great, so if it's cool, I would like to order one as well! :-D

why would you want to play the VB on your PC? Just play your VB on your VB!


To me I see it as not everyone can afford some of the games or has a Flash Boy to play them. This is also makes it easier for people to use emulation to capture clear footage of games without needing a bunch of equipment.


I kid I kid, and I get it. For me it just takes away the experience of the amazing 3D graphics that the lasers trick us into :) but I get it for the purposes of development and testing on a computer!


Well, the VB doesn't have any lasers, but there are VB emulators that are compatible with current VR headsets. They work... okay. Honestly, it isn't the best for a bunch of technical reasons involving pixel ratios. But it is the best many people can do.

The best reason, though, is for developers to test their games.

I am on that same wavelength. In the event that we ever produced that many games, it would rub me the wrong way to cannibalize hundreds or thousands of retail games. Plus, that jacks the price up. Good luck on this.

That is not how I understood what he said. :-P Sounds like he is talking about getting new carts made. Either 3D printed, or maybe by talking to certain people. When I worked at GameStop, I had to learn to recognize official versus bootleg carts. Some were obvious, but a few were not. Of course, these carts will be used to improve the Virtual Boy library instead of for piracy or con jobs.

Well, that was how I took it.
