    I've always wanted a big cabinet that that takes up space and gives me headaches and hurts my eyes!

    But on a serious note, this seems cool for collectors like yourself, but I don't think most people on this site will care.
    Guess I wrong...

    This is amazing. It is fantastic to see somebody take something such as the Virtual Boy, and make it into something that every collector would want. The machine itself is amazing and looks great.

    This beats that GBA bongo-arcade monster by so far.

    This is amazing.

    Now, personally what I would do with this in the future is make a monitor that emulates the VB's 3D perfectly with Red/Cyan glasses like the emulator VBjin. Not only does it cause less eye strain, it makes the game's colors a cooler purple-blue instead of the blood red it was on the original. Of course, this would probably destroy it for VB purists, but besides Keith Apicary, I can't recall too many [​IMG].

    Really, though, this is great.

    That thing is F'N sweet. Kinda makes me wish I didn't sell the other unit I had.

    Freaking awesome. If the VB launched like this, it could even have been successful [​IMG]

    Wow, WOW, wow...
    I think I just jizzed a tiny rainbow.

    That is SO cool! I'd kill to have that in my house.

    Easy, there, don't overdo it.

    ...Interesting, but I don't see how it's THAT cool.

    Ah well, you guys and your strange tendencies! [​IMG]

    How many games were actually released for Virtual Boy? Dont remember there being that many, and i dont think I would put out the money for a cabinet for virtual boy. MAME, SNES, or something like that, definately.. but not VB

    That site will tell you both the released and not released games.

    I would actually like to have this, though I wanna see it in action first.

    Some interesting games. Never had a chance to play any, except for a snippet on the Warioware Inc game (assuming that was from a real game)

    Wow, everyone's so much hyped about Virtual Boy now? I guess that's what you call a sleeper-hit [​IMG]

    By the way, for a good laugh:

    Compared to other cabinets, it actually doesn't seem all that large. I don't think it would really be intrusive unless you made it a point to stick it in the middle of your room.
