Here's an official VGA Box, model HKT-8100, in original box. The current bid is ¥5,500. Unfortunately it is listed as "junk" (untested / as-is).

10 year anniversary!

Hey everyone, I created this forum on December 13, 2008, exactly 10 years ago today!! I started the first thread two days later: Welcome VO fans . The timing was fortuitous, with Xbox 360 VOOT being announced the following February, triggering an influx of activity here. Several Virtual-On ports hav...

Re: Virtual-On in VR with real stereo 3D

Welcome back! Thanks for the details, it sounds promising. Do you have a Rift or Vive to try it out in VR?

I upgraded the forum software and extensions. Unfortunately the style was not compatible with the new version, so I'll have to find a new style to use. (suggestions welcome)

Re: PS4 ports announced!

I wish they would release a PC port. In any case, the announcement says it is download-only, and I would guess Japan-only. How do we buy this in the US?

Re: Yahoo! Japan Auctions thread

This one caught my interest. It is a DC controller with a connector hacked on to connect it to a Naomi. The auction includes a compatibility list of sorts, confirming VOOT 5.66 can read the VMU data (custom colors). I suspected this was the case but never got around to trying it. The other compatibl...

Re: Yahoo! Japan Auctions thread

This is not really VOOT related but interesting nonetheless. A Dreamcast Dev Kit in the original box. The starting price is ¥880,000 ($7,848 as of 10/16). EDIT 10/20: The price has dropped to ¥480,000 ($4,265).

Re: Cyber Trooper's MAYHEM Tournament at GOEAZ 8/10-8/12

Unfortunately I won't be able to make to this event. Maybe next time. But the setup looks amazing. Do you know the provenance of the 5.66 cab? Is it the one from from Arcade Infinity? I can't imagine many were imported from Japan. I still remember seeing the original eBay listing (IIRC $2500) around...
