That's true, just make sure you're buying one that has an eyeshade. I've noticed most that are up for less than 10 bucks don't. Also, always check your shipping prices...

btw, there's a ridiculous lot on ebay I saw recently:

that's a LOT of parts!!! (no pun intended???)

The person who owns the game can be bribed to lending it. I would gladly donate towards the cause of sending hundreds of dollars via paypal to someone to get a game dumped.

Either that, or give gas/food money to a rom dumper-type person to personally travel to a unreleased game owner's house along with proper equipment to dump the game :)

Thanks for the update. Yeah, Space Squash seems much more appropriate a game to pay less than $100 for. I prefer Cosmic Smash on Dreamcast myself ;)

I must have been really tired when I wrote that list to say only $250 for Virtual Bowling!!! Gah!!!

Just wanted to add that I'm in a great mood tonight, because I finally got my copy of Galactic Pinball in the mail today that I ordered months ago... it was WELL WORTH THE WAIT! I'm a pinball addict, and there's not many more (legal) games for me to collect, so whenever I find an awesome one it gets me that much closer to a state of absolute bliss.

In american funds, here's approximately what I've seen on ebay lately (past few months):

i am not listing demo versions!

New In Box unless specified, US version unless specified (unless Japan only, of course)

3D Tetris - I saw it recently for buy it now at $85
Galactic Pinball - around $12 loose, $25 NIB
Golf - $7
Insmouse No Yakata - $85 buy it now
Jack Bros. - loose around $30, sometimes $40 buy it now
Mario Clash - loose around $20
Mario's Tennis - $5 loose, box is expensive
Nester's Funky Bowling - WAY over $100, don't remember?
Panic Bomber - $8 japanese version
Red Alarm - $12
SD Gundam Dimension War - up to $1000+
Space Invaders Virtual Collection - up to $2000+
Space Squash - $150
Teleroboxer - $12 loose
V-Tetris - $7 or less
Vertical Force - US $25, Japanese $15
Virtual Bowling - $250?
Virtual Boy Wario Land - loose $20, up to $40 NIB
Virtual Fishing - up to $100 or so???
Virtual Lab - $150
Virtual League Baseball - US version $2 or less, Japan $6 (you can always find a lot of 6 or more US VLBs for like $10... it's sad)
Waterworld USA Ocean - $35-$60 mint in box (this one dropped a LOT recently for some odd reason)

I may be a little off with the rarer titles, but that's what I've seen at some point in time.

I know that those of you in the UK are having a harder time, but search for US sellers who will ship internationally to avoid being ripped off. I've noticed UK bids going ridiculous.

the hardware is hilariously priced - $20+ for the AC adaptor mib, head unit (bare) around $10, eyeshade $10+, official headphones $25, the stand i've seen go for as much as $30! ???

it seems the best bet to start off is go with a lot, it's easier because many people look for specific games. I've seen some RARE games in lots that don't end for very much, like system with stand and eyeshade+ac adaptor +hard case +5 commons +Nester's Funky bowling ended at only around $200 a few weeks ago... I was kicking myself. Some people also don't list VB under video games (like under toys because they're idiots), and they go for less sometimes.
I just do a generic search (all categories) for "virtual boy" (in quotes), and "search title and description" checked off. That way you get both the "vintage games" and "other games" sections (where VB stuff is most commonly placed), as well as miscellaneous listings elsewhere.

happy VB hunting...

If someone were to make Strong Bad Zone for VB I would be highly grateful.

Don't know what I'm talking about?

ebay, usually listed as "eye shade"

expect to pay around 10 bucks plus shipping

if you have the original black plastic rim you could make your own "shade" out of fabric and cardboard, probably.

If Blox ever gets made I guess it will be the first homebrewed, published, and sold game on VB. The homebrew scene on other retro systems is growing like crazy. Anyone see the atari 2600 stuff coming out lately? Skeleton is awesome, it even has stereo sound! 3DO, Sega CD, CDI, Colecovision, and especially Dreamcast are doing really well.

Good Deal Games publishes new games for classic systems, check out www.gooddealgames.com

Yes, many folks will gladly shell out good money for a really well-made homebrew, especially on a system that didn't release a lot of games like VB or Vectrex.

Shutterglasses are amazing now with current refresh rates, the flicker is is basically unnoticable to the human eye if your monitor is above 75 hz (I play at 100 :) )

A good site to check out is
http://www.stereo3d.com/shutter.htm

And this is a decent list of pretty compatible games:
http://www.edimensional.com/misc/games.htm

I bought these glasses:
http://www.i-glassesstore.com/3dgaming.html

I was very lucky enough to get them, with a bonus set of 2 wired TV glasses and transmitter, and 3 DVD movies for $80 total at PhillyClassic this year (I can't really recommend the TV ones, the flicker is unbearable).

The PC ones work great, are wireless, and are flawless with most direct3D/DirectX games (yes, you could even get them to work with Playstation emulators)

if you have a NVIDIA graphics card it works extremely well, but if you don't, you need a glidewrapper or something that is apparently VERY glitchy.

Enjoy!

I'm dying for a new/updated pc vb emulator, especially one with shutterglasses support. Analygraph is OK, but shutterglasses rock.

Has anyone released the source for their now-defunct emulators? has anyone picked them up? are any of them worth picking up?

sigh...

bootleg carts?

Bootleg gameboy carts have always been easy to find, but has anyone ever seen these so-called VB bootleg carts? I have heard of one on one site that had all the games ever released, plus several homebrew games and demos. I have a feeling that if it did actually exist that a few games were missing, just like on all the bootleg gb carts I have.

Personally, I would love to be able to play the demos and homebrews on the actual system, so I'm dying to hunt one of these suckers down. I'm possibly going to asia next summer, and I'll definately search while I'm there. Any info in the meantime would be great.
