yeah if you have the piece, use good epoxy (TEST IT FIRST ON SOMETHING ELSE) or Krazy Glue. Don't buy imitation Krazy Glue, shell out the extra couple bucks for the real stuff. I used the fake stuff for years and just a week ago bought a tube of the real deal and it's a world of difference when repairing plastics.

Yeah, be careful getting used VBs on ebay. Most people don't tell you that the battery pack isn't included (just like they say "I can't test to see if the head unit works or not, I don't know where the AC adaptor plugs in it", when we all know it plugs into the CONTROLLER... sigh...).

Mine didn't come with a battery pack, but fortunately it came with at 3rd party AC adaptor with a REALLY LONG cord! So I'm not complaining!

Uh, no.

Nintendo is already insane enough to have 2 portable systems on the market simultaneously. Granted I love both of them, but having a 3rd system that is not a standard console would be suicide. The revolution is simply going to be the follow up to GameCube, that's it. PS3's and Xenon's specs are out and updating, Nintendo just wants to develop what it can for now, then just like Microsoft and Sony they will release specs and them change them every 3 months.

Yes, they have the technology to easily make a new 3d system, but there is basically STILL NO MARKET! People don't want to be trapped in a box by themselves... there's just some sort of temporary novelty to it for most people. Many just can't take it seriously. They need some grip of their surroundings.

Do you see any mainstream 3d peripherals? Nope. i-glasses aren't even doing well, and they were the closest thing to mainstream. I have shutterglasses for PC. They are the greatest invention since sliced bread but they're still for a niche audience, and there's no one company on top raking in the profit. In fact, there's dozens of companies making them and they basically all do the same thing. Shutterglasses have been around for decades and will never die, but they will most likely never get popular.

If Nintendo wanted to, they could have put the DS into a helmet, added a focus and ipd knob, and make more 3d games. Instead they opted to keep it friendly to the masses.

Do you see mainstream touch-sensitive peripherals? Yup. Loads of people are familiar with PDAs, so Nintendo took a gamble and thought it'd be an original and fun idea to have a touch-sensitive screen. Were there dual screen systems before DS? Sort of. Nintendo Game and Watch LCD games were basically the same design as the DS, and sold quite well back in the 80s.

I have an ad I've never seen anywhere else, just found it today sitting in a pile of ancient magazine pullouts and such. It's for a 1995 Virtual Boy mall tour!!!

I completely forgot about it for a while! I picked it up at the end of the show while they were packing up (I didn't know about it earlier, so that's when I arrived). Wow, I was 13 years old back then... It's amazing I keep so much crap and in such good condition.

Anyhow, I'll scan it tonight and submit it soon!
