Virtual Boy TV spotted on eBay for $50,000

For the low, low price of $50,000 you can have your very own Nintendo Virtual Boy TV. Originally used by developers to output their games on a TV (for testing purposes!), you can re-live all the fun you had playing Mario Tennis at Toys R Us, but at home, and on TV!

Apparently this is a tremendously rare item, but there are several things that might keep you away. For one, it only outputs on PAL TVs, so you’d have to have access to one of those in order to play. Even then, it only works the standard AV cables, that is, not the fancy RGB cables.

The $50,000 price tag is also a sort of “best guess,” with the actual value of the item totally unknown. Maybe there’s some money mark out there who wants it so bad that he’s willing to pay one million dollars for it?

Oh, I don’t think any games are included, either. I mean, I see photos of the games in use, but I’m not sure that they’re included.

Why am I writing so much about this?
