Thanks for the posts, i have to agree with you people on the uniqueness of the virtual boy, when i was about 7 or so i got a gameboy, never even heard of the virtual boy until last year, 2008.

I also thought gunpei yokoi was still alive making these metroid games, like the third one but last year i found out what happend to him.

i really do think that the virtual boy would of had alot of thinking put into it, and i guess if i think about it back then, would i rather a virtual boy with a limited amount of set games, a costly price or a small portable gaming device, black and white great games like mario bros, donkey kong, metroid 2.

Either way the virtual boy never got released in Australia so i would of never had the chance of buying one.

My first poll, anyway this poll is about what do you rather the gameboy or the virtual boy, and you can also say things like if more games like such and such were on the virtual boy id pick it, etc.

Virtual boy:

Gameboy:

i personally rather the virtual boy, portable or not, its a bigger screen, it has 3d effects that are impressive, and the graphics are like super nintendo

the gameboy games were black and white small screen and impossible to even play if you werent in the right position of lighting otherwise the screen was to dark or too reflective.

so yeah comments etc you can post as well (not sure how the poll thing works or wether its just a thread stating a poll is on it).

Just a quick question, but what posters are out in the world that are about the virtual boy, especially some of the games, i only ever see waterworld on ebay the poster, im not sure if i saw a faceball poster for VB in the angry videogame nerds walls (search him up on youtube if you dont know who he is, he did a harsh review on the virtual boy kinda funny, well alot are funny but he did a good review on alotta the games).

thanks.

Yeah i agree not too many posts this is pretty much my favourite forum i check it everdyay during my time on the computer and it kinda sucks seing no one reply to a comment or something i try n make a few threads if i got a question etc.

i mainly go on the homepage check on the right hand side bar to see new posts, thats about it.

i was thinkin of puttin up a few threads like questions people may know the answer too, like what posters about the virtual boy did nintendo power give out, i can only think of the waterworld one.

i recently had my friends come over they dislike the virtual boy they aint one of those retro people they just go ahh my eyes hurt or this is boring or something but its also hard telling them the controls when theyve probably never seen the controller before or how the game works.

like i would be askin ok for mario tennis a is to hit it normal and b is like a lob move around left right up down and of course they would keep missing, teleroboxer was one of the hard ones to teach but that games real awesome, i dunno why they hate it i think its a awesome little thing and if the virtual boy had as many quality games as the gameboy i would rather the 3d red an black then a small black and white screen.

anyway they r a few theads u might see pop up.

Also once again thanks dogp your guide is awesome on opening the virtual boy up im glad people like you are around =D

nice find, they got a reserve price so im guessing it will be more then 200+ $ because of jack bros and waterworld and for the fact it has a virtual boy included too.

true to that it is a instant very good collection.

wow, nice.

is there any virtual boy stuff you dont own?

also another question i was gonna make another thread for it, was gonna ask who actually bought a virtual boy when they released and what were your thoughts on it.

i would of only been about 3 when they were released, and they did not hit australia so yeah lol.

whats more common a virtual boy with its box or a virtual boy with its hardcase?

how much do the hardcases sell for seperately?

aprox how many were made?

were blockbuster even aloud to sell the hardcases? i think i read somehwere that they were not for sale just youd get it if you rented it then had to return it in its hardcase. btw did you guys ever see them virtual boy trading cards on ebay that sold for 200+ i got a screenshot somewhere i was amazed, the guy also had a virtual bowling cart that sold (this was like a month and a bit ago)

I just double checked and the mario clash that sold for US $84 is not sealed the top part shows the cardboard top part has been opened if it was sealed the plastic would be stopping it.

heres a zoomed up pic the one i sent is pretty small this is the US $84

im pretty sure its not sealed, all the ones that he has that are sealed he states are sealed, sure it could of been a mistake but he has put there that mario clash virtual boy platforms COMPLETE CIB.

maybe the people thought it was sealed because when i read your comment i was like oh it may actually of been sealed

heres a pic of the top showing it has been opened i guess (just put a red circle where its noticable)
