    Listen guys, please tell me what you think.

    This guy i know bought a Virtual boy for like 200$. In a box which is kinda ripped, but the console looks pretty awesome.
    Also he got the v-tetris game.

    He is offering me to trade for the Majora's Mask Lamp that is currently on Club Nintendo UK.

    I Have already ordered it, hasn't come in yet.
    So:

    That Lamp + 60$ for Virtual boy in box, with all the cables and a game.
    Worth it?
    Note: I really really really really want a virtual boy. please don't say it's awful, thats not very useful..
    thanks for the help

    Trade. If it's a boxed unit in good condition that seems to be a good price. If you don't mind the box, scour eBay first to see if there aren't any good deals available - you might score one for your $60. Remember, VB's are prone to failure, the fact that it works for sure is a selling point.

    6000stars is realy cheap its 2 cds in the club nintendo store... even chibi robot is more expensive, if he is willing to trade a v-boy for that cheap plasitc thing go for it but make shure he doesnt back out first(it takes up to 3months to deliver for nintendo)

    Fuck Nintendo, I am still waiting for my two CDs SSB4 OST.
    And I suppose that is a valid comment regarding delivery times given I am waiting since SSB4 Wii U was released (Nov. 28 IIRC)

    I think that's a pretty nice deal. It's a great console to play and collecting virtual boy games is a ton of fun. I got mine for $50 with Teleroboxer and Mario tennis, but it's right screen was wacked out. I fixed it, though.
    V-Tetris is worth about $20 or so on it's own. Does it come with the AC adapter? That can be worth a pretty penny.
    Also, make sure it comes with the original eye cover thing. Without it, playing games can be a pain.

    Do it. People are overestimating the price of the Zelda Majora's Mask lamp which by the looks of it is pretty cheaply made.

    I'd do the trade if I were you.

    If it comes with the AC adapter, eye shield, controller, and box, it's totally worth it. Go for it! I promise you'll enjoy it.
    Games I suggest getting:
    Vertical Force
    Wario Land
    Mario Tennis
    Teleroboxer
    Panic Bomber

    I'll sell you mine for $30 New Zealand dollars.
    It arrived to me with the case heavily damaged but you could just put the discs and inserts into a blank 2CD case.

    I would not get the Virtual boy. I had one once and got rid of it 1 week later.
    The VB is crap imo.
    Unconfortable to play and only reddish graphics. Most games are also not even fun to play.

    A great value BUT be warned. I have a Virtual Boy and the lens died on me. Extra money was spent to send it to a repairer in Holland to make sure it works again. It's a meh meh gaming machine but holy crap it's an awesome thing to have on a shelf as a piece of 90's kitsch.
