So much false hope in the thread title for those that didn't get a copy.

I thought this was pretty interesting:
eBay item #263608086487 is a Virtual League Baseball prototype. The guy selling it has no idea if there are any differences between this and the final version.


Scroll up a bit, this item gets tons of coverage in this thread.

Ok so there are two things going on: This maker of repro games does a lot for the VB community, and at the same time charges an exorbitant amount for a particular repro VB game, near certainly with the intention of fooling people into thinking they're getting a copy from the original highly-sought after batch to justify the goliath price tag.

Can we all just agree on that? It seems like all the parties debating this are not acknowledging one of these facts or the other. We should all be saying "Thanks for all your hard work for the community Kevin, by the way that's a shady thing you're doing with Hyper Fighting." It's ok, that really seems like the fact here. Even if the creator of Hyper Fighting steps out of the shadows and settles any issues today, this should have been done before the very first sale if ethics were a concern.

DreamMary: That Virtual League Baseball proto has been on eBay for nearly two years now, we've discussed it in this thread before. tl;dr version: The owner has no idea of the value of the proto, and so is shooting for the stars basing the price off of TG-16 protos, which the seller feels are just as niche and desirable. As you can tell by the 2 year-old listing, his feeling is misguided lol.

Do I think it "could" happen? Yes, they could easily make a little lightweight plastic VR headset-type device with the entire VB library on it, include Bound High and Dragon Hopper on it, and charge about $100 for it. That would be a dream come true for many of us, and I personally would love to see it.

Do I think it "will" happen? I'd pretty much bet my life savings that it won't. Nintendo already tried to give this system to the public back in '95, and the public responded with a near-universal "no thank you". The past success, library of hits, and loads of hype leading to launch are what resulted in the success of the NES and SNES Classic Minis. A Virtual Boy Classic would not be afforded those same perks and advantages. Even an N64 Classic (which is a system that was received by the public 1000000x better than the VB but still pretty lukewarm by Nintendo standards) probably wouldn't invoke anywhere near the level of hype and fervor (and therefore sales) of the NES and SNES Classic.

What I could see happening way before we'd ever see a VB Classic, would be 3DS releases of Virtual Boy games, hopefully in a compilation, much like the Mr. Game & Watch DS compilations. That seems much more viable to me, and even that seems like a fading hope, given that the 3DS is currently a shadow walking towards the sunset.
