Is it worth getting a virtual boy?
Depends what price you found it at.
If you really enjoy its few games, yes. No emulator is likely to ever do it justice because of the different screen technology from anything else. None I've tried even have decent sound quality.
kinda neat collectors item. i now wish i bought one when they were liquidating them for like $50 from sears
If you hate your eye sight then get it.
I have one ... I brush the dust off it every couple of years, just to dick around with for an hour ...
Well, it depends on why you want it. If you want it to play a few games that you fondly remember, then yeah, get it. As theclaw pointed out, I don't think there will ever be an emulator for it. I've never even heard mention of one and I stay pretty up-to-date on the emu scene.
If you want it for a collector's item, then it might not be a horrible idea if you can get one for cheap. I only see like 18 of them on fleaBay which is a pretty low number. They seem to be going for around $50 or more also.
It will probably be hard to get many games for it also.
No, theclaw said no emulator will ever do it justice ... there are emulators for it ...
I dont know...You're so vague. If you think it'd be fun, and are just curious and you can get it for roughly the cost of a daily lunch at a cafe, then I guess. But I dont know why you'd want one. The redness of it, (I've never played but saw videos) seems horrible and painful but I could be wrong...
I am blind in one eye, so playing on the VB is a special experience for me lol
But seriously, if you can get one very cheaply ... especially if it's had a power supply mod performed on it ... and you can get the games cheaply enough, also ... then get it
