Wow! Looking at your display cases makes me feel like I'm in a store in 1996, and the Virtual Boy is still alive, and there's hope that Dragon Hopper and Zero Racers will be released soon!

Several people asked me to post some pics of my current collection, so I have begun to make pictures of everything. Right now, I'm trying to find a way to display everything as nicely as possible within the 6 picture limit on the profile page, and the first idea that came to mind was make a collage of all my games using a scanner and Paint. Attached is the collage of my game collection. I shrunk it to 58% of its original size in Paint so that it would be under the 5000K limit for this thread. This is now also the first picture on my profile page, where it appears in a much smaller form.

I'll probably try to scan all the other items that will fit on my scanner as well as take photos of the other ones individually that won't fit on my scanner and make collages out of those. I actually like using this collage as my desktop background. I don't have too many icons on it, so I keep black margins on the sides where the icons go and then I can see Virtual Boy stuff in the middle everyday at work, which is a nice helpful start to my day. Just giving this as a suggestion to others to make collages of your Virtual Boy collections for fun and artful purposes.

Woooooww Ben!!!!!!


What a great colection, I hope to get one like yours some day..... On purpose, those prototypes that you have unmounted ,which games are they? Are them Faceballs?


I want a complete one and Richard told me that complete games are distributed by Uncletusker and can't contact on him......


Do you know who could help me?


I also want to say that I'm very interested in buying games, so if you can offer something.....

It would be totally awesome if one of those EPROM carts was an original prototype cart of Faceball, but unfortunately, that is not the case. They are EPROM carts containing Sample Soft for VUE Programming and Space Pinball (the prototype version of Galactic Pinball).

Because the ROMs of the Sample Soft demo and the Space Pinball game have been available on this site for sometime, there is uncertainty as to whether or not these two carts are “genuine” (meaning they contain actual versions of the ROMs that were flashed onto them way back in 1995 during the development phase) or if they are “fakes” (meaning someone took the available ROMs of these and flashed them onto the genuine dev carts at a much later period of time). No matter what, though, the carts themselves are genuine dev carts made by Nintendo. Nevertheless, I am strongly convinced that these carts are fully genuine, and some of the reasons for this are as follows:

The uber-collector from whom I purchased these carts had these carts in his possession for many years, and I am 100% confident that he had the Space Pinball prototype cart in his possession long before its ROM was made readily available online.

Also, as best as he can remember, both of these carts came from the main office that wrote guides for Nintendo Power back in 2007 when the office didn't get its contract renewed at the time of Nintendo Power's move to San Francisco. Thus, these two cartridges left that office when it closed and, in a short time, found their way into his collection, where they remained until I purchased them. There is good reason to suppose that the cartridges would have been in that office since they originally arrived there in 1995 and remained in that office until the office closed in 2007.

The most major proof, however, lies in the cart of Sample Soft for VUE Programming itself. If you look closely at the cart that has VUE SAMPLE 1 on it in my collage, you will notice that the “VIRTUAL BOY” and “Nintendo” molded letters, etc. appear nowhere on the outer shell of the cart. To me, this is strong evidence that this cart was made during a pre-production period before the EPROM carts were sent on a large scale to developers, because all dev carts that I have ever seen, save for this one, have those molded letters on them. The Sample Soft for VUE Programming would have been one of the first things that developers would have wanted to flash onto an EPROM cart to test out on a Virtual Boy, since it was one of the first programs made for the Virtual Boy, so it would make sense that it would be the ROM to appear on a very early version of the EPROM cart. What are the chances that a hoaxer would have access to such a rare cart, in order to be able then to flash the earliest available program onto it to make it look “genuine”? Very slim in my estimation, especially since it doesn’t seem that this cart was ever publicly put online for sale in an attempt to get a large profit.

All of this evidence convinces me that these two carts were sent to the Nintendo Power office originally in 1995 to test out on a Virtual Boy, remained there until 2007, found their way into the uber-collector’s collection, and then found their way into my collection. But I guess I still can’t say this with 100% certainty, unfortunately.

Faceball’s release on cartridge should occur in a few months, and it will indeed be released by the UncleTusker team, the same team that released Bound High CIB recently. Eric, the owner of the game who is trying to get back most of his money that he had to pay to acquire it, has mentioned that complete copies of the game might sell for $100.00 each, and if that is too much money for anyone to spend, then they should simply wait for the ROM to be released online after he has gotten back most of his investment. He also said that nothing is set in stone yet. Thus, if you desire to get a complete copy of Faceball, I would recommend checking this site regularly for updates on when it will be released. The month of February 2013 has already been mentioned as the possible date for its release.

Unfortunately, I don't have any extra copies of Virtual Boy games to sell, so I can't help you there, but I wish you the best in your quest to expand your VB collection! :-)

Regards.

I'll have to make all these into a collage for my profile collection some time later.

I wish my scanner didn't have all sorts of hairs and stuff underneath the glass, which always appear in the scans.
