Innovation Virtual Boy AC Adapter for $2.99 + shipping.


Yeah, I saw that auction. Just marketed as an Snes adapter it seems.

I'm certain that L_E_T would disagree, but I say give it a go if you plan to keep it.
Please take warning that NOS VB consoles are especially susceptible to getting the glitchy line problem since the ribbon cables haven't moved in 17 years , so adjust the IPD knob very slowly and once you find the sweet spot for your eyes don't touch it again.

You might be best off selling your NOS unit and buying a used complete one for cheaper.

If they have any extra free time, they listen to hip-hop


i've been listening to indy, underground hip-hop, and groups that are now much bigger, for going on 20 years. i listen to hip-hop from all around the world and i did it before it became something "cool" to do. Hip-hop makes up a majority of my listening time (about 8hrs a day) but I also enjoy Jazz, Blues, Metal, Funk, R&b, Chiptunes, Folk, etc, etc...

i am also an avid homebrew proponent and a collector of classic video game experiences.

i don't appreciate it when a genre of music is grouped with the undesirable actions of a few. the modern "rap" music that plays on the radio is not hip-hop. hip-hop is something that a large majority of kids these days do not understand, appreciate, or are even aware exists.


I was trying to refer to the stereotype of loudly listening to rap or whatever on headphones in public while *simultaneously* playing angry birds. My intent was to generalize and insult the masses of rich yuppie kids that go around ragging on every classic game/console almost any chance they get.

Maybe somebody used an incorrect AC adapter and fried the voltage regulator?

Congrats! You can still enjoy it in a dark room at night until you can find an extra eyeshade. :)

I have never met a single person that has played a VB and understood that you need to adjust the IPD/Focus that disliked the VB.

Ignorant mob mentality is the main reason that the VB is disliked. Let the haters hate. kids these days just want their emo hair, pretend that they are popular because of facebook friends, and spend most their time playing online FPS games while proving to themselves & the world that they learned some bad words. If they have any extra free time, they listen to hip-hop and play Angry Birds on their smart phone.



Also, don't be too upset about YouTube comments in general. I have seen some of the worst comments on the entire internet made there. I'm a bit shocked that YouTube never cracked down on all the racist & vulgar trolls.

Do you want them loose or boxed?
Boxed and complete in good condition, I'd say you can sometimes get Space Squash/Nester's for about $60 each, and 3D Tetris for around $80.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not all too keen on current pricing.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. She got out of surgey a little over an hour ago. I hope that I'll get to speak with her on the phone tonight or tomorrow morning. For now I'm just relieved.

I know this thread is stupid, but I'm freaked out. She's in her 60s and has had a series of serious problems in the past few years that also freaked me out.

Please just knock on wood for her.
Thanks friends, I'll update tomorrow as soon as I hear back from her husband.
