Is it just me, or have prices risen dramatically on ebay in the past 2 months. I've been seeing games that are relatively easy to find going for ridiculous prices. And now, there is a Nester's Funky Bowling that has almost hit $100!

What happenend? I've also seen Virtual Boys going for about $40, for nothing more than the core system; no boxes, games or stands. Now I'm glad that I got mine for $25.

I think that some of this might be because of the Angry Video Game Nerd vid. He basically just advertised the crap out of the Virtual Boy and now other people are going to want to experience for themselves.

i got my VB last year... it came with a working A/C adapter.. and GOLF. I got it for 85 dollars (not working) but it works fine because I used the oven trick.

Even that Virtual Boy for $500 is still way too much. No boxes or even pictures of the other games. I still think that its funny when people think that their Virtual Boy is worth hundreds, and no one bids even though its been relisted several times. Like this one ha ha

$300 for a supposed new Virtual Boy. Yeah right (to the price, not condition).

Well i got my VB for a high price(ofc not $500 and $400 etc but still high) as well. I wanted it so bad so i made the highest bid in the last 2 seconds i got the vb in perfect condition(only time that i got lines in right screen was in wario land and that was one or two as well for the screen brightness that i mentioned in the topic nooooo) 7 games the blockbuster case manuals for the vd and some games as well some boxes the battery pack and the ac tap adapter:)

Too bad I was a kid and didn't have a job when Virtual Boy was being sold on its final days, I would have bought 4 of them easily with every game.

But, looking at my box now I'm glad i was able to find $25 for a brand new one.

BTW, blcklblskt, someone bid on that $300 auction already.

$300 is waaaaay too much for me. I'd rather buy something like Virtual Bowling or one of the other rarer Japanese games.

It seems that 3 copies of Space Invaders Virtual Collection have gone up on ebay recently. But these are the only copies I've seen going off in 5 months of looking on ebay. Very fishy to me...
