I don't know how many people who post in these forums have a Vectrex, but with dozens of people having some of the common games on this database, I figured I would post this.

In order to participate, there's only a few very simple rules:

1. On November 1, play your Vectrex.
2. I'll need your name and game(s) that you played.  Or you could supply these yourself for the wiki page.

There's other stuff that can be included for bonuses if anyone wants, like making a video for it, taking screenshots for an included gallery, including your scores, etc.  Full rules and if you want me to update the wiki page for anyone and such can be seen here:

Hope to see some people on the first!

Crabmaster: it might be done next year too, who knows!  (Too early to call right now.)

I'm so there.

Good to hear!

New interview with Vectrex homebrew developer George Pelonis coming soon to a home page near you!

That's cool.  At some point when I have a breather (too much going on right now) I should have a FURY page on the wiki for him, since he was one of the first homebrewers I ever bugged for that.  However, some video game book was coming out and he was going to be in it, so he wanted the info to be exclusive to the book until it was released.  And that was like a year ago, so that stuff should be free to go out now.  But both of us are pretty busy right now (probably more him than me!) so I'm not going to see about it right now, plus I've got other pages that I'll be starting on soon (I hope).

No, it just means you needed to find a Vectrex all along! Wink

I'll add that to the long list of things I "need."  Damned list seems to keep growing, instead of getting smaller.

Does it count if I just turn on my Vectrex and watch it for a while? I would play it if I had a controller...

Oh no!

I'm afraid not  Undecided

I'd say to check Recycled Gamer for their modded sticks, which they're kind of much to a lot of people, although I see where they have the modded Genesis controllers for $40 as their cheapest model now.

Control panels have really dropped in price recently and even a 3D imager with a boxed copy of Narrow Escape went for $255 the other day (I've seen those imagers go for over $1000 alone).  You could probably get a control panel for around $40-$50 if you snipe it.

That's still $40-50 more than I paid for the system...

Well if that's the case, you should get two. Tongue  Systems still going for well over $150.
