Effectively, I would like to complete my collection, but I'm not obsessed with this objective. I prefer to buy my favourite games at the cheapest price possible (while in good condition and preferably boxed) and be patient looking for the rarest games at affordable price. In my short experience in this matter I've noticed that patience is a good travel companion!

Feck thats a lot of cash for a non 3D experience on a PAL only tv, which is great for me from UK, but i doubt I'll be making a bid.

Kinda looks official, I too am intrigued as to what this actually is.

Actually, if it's a real "Video Adapter VUE", it should have a red/green anaglyph mode (see the attached screen-shot of Red Alarm projected on a large screen at some expo). Perhaps that mode only works with the RGB cable he can't get to work.

Also, it looks like he has a dev cart (auction has a screen-shot of the "Sample Soft" demo with the monkey and banana-pillar). It's not included, but for that price it should come with at least one!

I like how FREE is all in capital letters. Yeah, it'd better be for that price, man!

Nice advertising the projector as being one in only two known to man when it says "Projector №12" on one of his photos. So there are at least twelve of those :D

Actually, I would be very intrigued if somebody would auction it and put pictures and documentation up. One can still dream, right?

cYa,

Well, there were at least twelve. Who knows how many still exist in working condition / not thrown away into the trash, though?

But you're right, that's a bit of a misadvertisement. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if this actually were to be a scam of some sorts.

Actually, he says it's one of two "known to exist", which implies that he's talking about the ones in the hands of private collectors, but you do have a point (as does DaVince; about loss and destruction).

Besides, if you want to get technical, there's been at least one made by an individual (DogP) which even has a few more features, so this really isn't that impressive (although still quite interesting, especially as a collectible, don't get me wrong). I think he's asking a ridiculously too-high price, though. I think he's just trying to get the highest "Make an Offer" he can, and I don't blame him.

Amazing auction! But... $50,000? Paha. It's worth maybe 1/20th of that. But it will be interesting to see for how much it goes, if it's anywhere near a fraction of the asking price, I really need to put up my VUE Debugger. :P

I am attaching the photos from the auction to preserve them and remind me to add them to PVB. :D

Haha, i had just spotted that about 20 minutes ago and was about to post it but ya beat me to it!

Is this some official product or is this just made by someone who wanted to play it on the TV? it wouldnt be able to produce 3D would it like the emulators? it would just be red and black like the VB but on the TV with no 3d effects yeh?

50,000 dollars is alot!!! is it just the quality of the photo or is that a hint of yellow in the game when its on the TV?

Very interesting...
