    Default Microvision!

    Anyone here own a Microvision? I have one and 6 games for it. What are your thoughts about it if you do?

    I had one but it crapped out on me.

    Have seen many busted units in the wild but I haven't come across another working one since.

    I've been told that they're VERY susceptible to failure via static electricity and that may be what caused mine to bite the dust.

    You are lucky. I'm still looking for Cosmic Hunter, Phaser Strike, Mind Buster, Alien Raiders and Vegas Slots.

    I think I'm missing 2 games, but besides that, I have one complete in the closet. Like most people, I turned it on to make sure it worked and then didn't go any further.

    I used to have one a long time ago, but it broke. It was given to me along with all of the games in box. Once the unit broke, I sold it along with the games for like $70. They did amazing stuff with the games considering what processing power and display the system had. If I were more enterprising I think it would be neat to mod one to use Dot matrix of LEDs instead of the flaky LCD.

    Complete US set CIB here, with Star Trek and Phaser Strike variants. Not the easiest set to complete, but not too many titles to get either. Hardest thing to find is a system that is working 100 percent.

    I've had a French one for some time, been trying to sell it here in Japan actually. If anyone wants it let me know. I have pictures here underneath my Channel F stuff: http://www4.ocn.ne.jp/~debiddo/vec.html

    It's a pretty good system though for the time I think. I bought it more as a curiosity than anything.

    Never owned one, but one of the group leaders at our church's boyscout type program had one and would sometimes let us play it during free time. It's amazing how far handheld gaming has come since then.

    When ebay first caught on and everyone wanted what they had as a child them things were some of the hardest to get cheap. Hundreds of dollars. I initally gave up.
