Marios tennis is cheap because i think it got bundled with the virtual boy, so every virtual boy had marios tennis with it. making it more common.

Red alarm, teleroboxer and a few others arent too expensive, they are good fun as well. 3D tetris is a game i still am yet to buy and yeah its expensive because i think it was the last released Virtual Boy game, so not many people would have got a hold of it, plus tetris is a popular game so that adds to the price i guess.

wario land i got the cartridge not long ago for 15$ it aint to expensive, but if your looking for a boxed copy your gonna pay more because you know back in the day the box was just 'packaging' people just threw it out.

the real real expensive games like virtual bowling, SD Gundam Dimension war etc, i dunno i didnt really play them much (on the emulator as i dont own them) But wario land and alot of the other virtual boy games i find more fun and they are by far cheaper.

Most of the games are expensive because the Virtual boy got discontinued within like a year, thats pretty short life-span for a gaming console, it was only released in US and Japan so mainly poeple from them places would have got the games when the system was released, people in Australia, United Kingdom, Europe etc all missed out.

Its funny cause im from Australia and only heard about the Virtual Boy last year! But i guess i hadn't been much of a game collector years back, only in recent years i have decided collecting games is a great hobby and is great fun as well to play alot of these great gems (games as well as the unique systems)

Hope this info helps!

That's awesome, i was thinking of doing a teleroboxer one as i've beaten all the robots without dying and even beaten the final hidden cat boss, i love that game so much as well. I havnt had the time to do it, if you want to that would be cool, all the robot bosses, each robot boss could be recorded seperately.

cool i'll have to look into them games!

Yeah i heard it doesnt work with LCD or Plasma TV's, thats the same for lightguns as well they dont work either on a LCD or Plasma TV, thats fine though i got plenty of TV's that work with my lightguns so should be fine with the Glasses.

I'm sure the 3D glasses wont enhance the graphics, i mean its still going to be 8-bit but i guess the experience and feeling of 3D will be better.

Missile defense 3D looks cool, basic lightgun game, shoot the missiles on the screen but apparently they come towards you almost giving the feeling they are coming out the screen!

Hey, i have recently bought Sega 3D Glasses off ebay, i got them cheap because its missing the left ear holder, they havnt arrived but when they do i'l be able to play missile defense 3D, outrun 3D, space harrier 3D and maze hunter 3D.

I'm just wondering, has anyone got the Sega 3D Glasses? they were released in the 1980's i beleive, are they better then the virtual boy that was released in 1990's? do they cause eye strain? are the 3D effects better then the virtual boy? are the small hand full of games for the Sega Master System that have 3D better then the small hand full of games released for the virtual boy?

Whats the best Sega master system 3D game? why?

Thanks!

Hmm not sure... maybe its to do with how many objects are on screen at one time? sorta like framerate, if it cant keep up with the game and it has a glitchy display... its going to fritz out. When my virtual boy had glitchy display in the right eye it only did it in teleroboxer, maybe because its a big game with alot of action, not sure lol. games like mario tennis and v tetris didnt go glitchy however.

hope it helps
