Super Space Invaders, pretty cool.
Those VBs aren't worth the time or effort, you can't even test them because they require the controller and battery pack (the battery pack attaches to the controller), they are also missing the stand (unless you want to duct tape it around your head like the AVGN).
Bridgett, don't you think I
would want a Virtual Boy before we would send one to someone else? (bridgypoo is my wife).
Tbh, the problem with the Virtual Boy is that for the 3D effect, they used a very obscure and weird method for the display. It's like a row of tiny red LEDs to the side of each eye. These things are known for failing over time. On top of that, the plastic on the eye pieces is very hard and brittle and known to crack easily. If you can find a mint unit for good condition, I would say go for it, but that's part of the reason the complete ones are worth so much.
Personally, before I'd get a Virtual Boy I think I would rather get a PC Engine, Coregrafx or Supergrafx. I was looking on Ebay and Coregrafx were $120 with all the hookups and some games. Afaik they work on US TVs and power with no modification. This would be preferable because I think they already do composite video out, and they play Japanese HUCards. The adapter for the US Turbografx-16 to allow it display video in composite is like over $200 alone. A lot of the games that I would want (Star Soldier games), the Japanese versions are much cheaper than the US counterparts. You can get a pin adapter that will allow the US Turbografx to play Japanese HUCards but it's probably very in demand due to the prices of US games, and so it itself might be very expensive.
