    VectrexWii, made by Aruskano, is a new Wii homebrew port of Vectrex, the short-lived video game console released in the early 1980's. The original console came with it's own monochrome monitor that used plastic screen overlays to add color, statical graphics and border decorations. Check the project page for further information about this emulator.

    I remember begging my mom for a Vectrex when they where closing them out... Of course at the time $50 was probably a lot of money... eBay still has them although they seem to have gotten a wee bit more expensive.

    Ahh well at least I can play it on the Wii now [​IMG] Thank you!
