Don't get me wrong, the game looks tripe but I kinda see this topic as videogame archeology and I don't understand that mentality, personally.


It's fun looking back at old threads like these, when we were pining for "Faceball" and "Bound High". Well, I have Faceball and Bound-High carts; they are very fun!

That gives credibility to the dream of some day having "Dragon Hopper", and possibly Zero Racers and Goldeneye...

Ok I'm reluctant to post this, but here it goes I did see it on E-bay once. But unfortunately it was before I knew what Planet Virtual Boy was and at the time low on cash :p . Yes it exists and it is definitely out there.:)


What time period was that?

We need to set up a group committed to buying it if-and-when it ever shows up again, dividing the price between us. (And somehow making sure that none of us is the actual OWNER, bidding PRIVATELY against us to maximize the price!)

He's probably referring to the Dragon Hopper that was on half.com . I'm assuming someone put it up as a joke or something... AFAIK, it's always been listed as "out of stock".

Welllll, once there was a "dolphin demo" on ebay. I was tempted, but it was hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

Let's assume that it (DH) does show up on ebay some day; it would really, REALLY suck (swamp water through a straw!!!!) if someone bought it and HOARDED it again (disappearing it for another decade or two)!

But it would equally suck if someone was a member HERE and participated in the "community fund", secretly bidding against the rest of us to fleece us out of the most bucks. Perhaps we could have a "private thread", those who actually INVEST would be the only ones who could see it, and we would each sign an agreement making us legally prosecutable should anyone try to scam the rest.

...it's the best I can think of....

:-/


PS --- if one shows up, it absolutely would HAVE to go through escrow. I bought "Gundam" through escrow; it was over 800 bucks, well worth a few dollars to protect myself...

we are jumping the gun a bit because there is still no hard proof that the game exists in private hands. let's assume it does and it could come up for public auction. i would assume it would go for a lot of money, probably more than others might assume. if the active members here tossed $200 each at the auction, we wouldn't raise enough to come near what I think it would sell for. then it becomes a question of how much are you willing to pledge towards something knowing the only pay off is a CIB copy? at that point i feel that most people would back off, let those with deeper pockets make the effort, and then wait to buy a CIB release copy for around $80. i guess the difference would be getting preservationists and collectors involved. personally, i am neither, i'm a gamer. i enjoy playing prototypes and unreleased games, but i don't seek them out or have any sort of craving to do so. by this i mean that experiencing DH would be really fun, but i'm not about to take a loan out to get it.

I'm assuming a copy of "Dragon Hopper" does exist but where its at is another question. More than likely someone does have and has no idea what it is, or, they have it and don't want it to go on the internet for whatever reason.

It's been 5 years since this topic started and while some of the unreleased games surfaced, there hasn't been anything at all regarding Dragon Hopper.. no photos, no videos, nothing to verify that it's even out there. I want to be optimistic but I'm starting to wonder..
