So I know this is random, but hear me out.

I had a left over Game Gear clear dust case and due to its similar size wondered if the vb games would fit. Sure enough its a perfect fit as long as you dont have a dust cover on the game. Figured this might be a unique and cheap way to protect not just the pins but the label as well from any wear or dust when not in use. Picture attached.

Better picture with game facing the other way. Maybe this is just my inner sega fanboy talking, but cant we all admit sega always had the better cases? I think its a far better solution, and they stack well!

Oohh, that's a battle you might not want to start =P I sure did like the cases Nintendo provided in the OG Gameboy era. Compared to the Virtual boy dust sleeve though (more akin to the SNES dust sleeve), definitely less protective.

Good eye though. I have a bunch of those GG cases (with carts in them, but still). Good to know it's a good fit!

Haha, very true. Forgot gameboy cases were basically the same. I was thinking more along the lines of snes vs genesis cases.

But yeah, other than them having to be sideways, it's like they were made for these things!

Loved my Game Gear when I had it, and remember the carts and cases also having a nice design, so glad to see this works.

Tricky for VB, the rotated cart would bother me and I need dust caps on all my carts for semi-OCD reasons.

So I just used little baggies myself, but I love that this works!

Yeah, I know the feeling. I'm the same way, and now I have a stack of dust covers that won't fit, and that bothers me a little.

That said, with that niggle aside, I feel like the cartridges are better protected in here, especially some of my really rare titles I've accumulated so far. Anything that sorta-kinda protects against what little sunlight that creeps into my gaming room (AZ sun is deadly for anything printed) and helps prevent any scratches or marks to the label is a win win for me.

Oh wow, this is a great information, thanks for sharing.

I may do this in the interim until I'm able to get custom DS cases finally created

Glad I could help!

Custom DS cases would indeed be the better route, but this is far more cost effective, and like mentioned before, at least protects your label.

I get ultra paranoid about opening Nintendo's cheapo cardboard boxes too many times as you increase the likelihood of creasing the side flap. So I try to keep my Nintendo game carts outside the boxes at all time.

This at least protects them while they wait to be played again.

My local store agreed to sell me these cases for a buck a piece. Seems to be the rough going rate, and I only need 15-20 for now.

That being said, if you ever are successful with DS style cases that hold the larger VB cart, please post them and let us know if you start to sell them. I'd also be more than happy to help with the artwork, if need be.

Well, there is already a guide to making your own out there actually

as far as the artwork, most are already available here and there for these DS style cases.
