What is the Nintendo Switch and how does it compare to the previous models and other consoles?

What is the Nintendo Switch and how does it compare to the previous models and other consoles?

Nintendo has recently held a launch event for their latest console named Nintendo Switch. As you can imagine, people are very excited to see a new console here, but there is also some skepticism here! Every Nintendo console was innovative in its right. The Nintendo 64 was a sheer delight to use, and it brought some revolutionary game ideas, the Wii U provided motion controls that were a lot of fun, and now Nintendo is preparing for something even more interesting.

VGA New Year for Auctions in 2017!

Nintendo Employee 1992 Product Information Training Manual Promo Binder

Hey all! Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and I wish everyone single one of you a Happy New Year! I’ve taken some time off during the Christmas break and some time off in the first week of the New Year but I’m happy to say we’re back in business!

So 2016 has passed by and as always we’ve posted so many auctions it’s hard to mention which ones were the biggest. I do know however that there are less incredibly rare items that I’ve been use to seeing before 2016, heck, even 2015. I mean it’s subjective as what I might find rare; you might not find rare. But for example I don’t think I’ve seen the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time official Famitsu Brother’s Flute. OR a Final Fantasy 7 Music Box. Seems like collectors are hanging onto their most prized possessions. But there will always be new and interesting stuff coming out and with the new year into play, let’ all hope for some goodies to hit ebay and other places for good prices :).

The Rise of Online Gaming

Video games have always been a changing medium. They have never rested on their laurels and instead have been moving forward and evolving continuously. From simple machines that could only play one game, arcades full of the latest hits, to consoles and PCs providing endless fun. Combined with handheld gaming consoles and mobile phones, how we play games has never been the same. Today, you can play something on your phone as you wait for a bus or you can engross yourself and commit hours of time to a complex and challenging console release. What has changed video games the most in recent years is online play and it brings a whole new dimension to the medium.

Atari Pong Clock by Buro Vormkrijgers – Only 400 ever made – Sander Mulder, Mario Christmas Window Decor and More! #mario #nes #nintendo #christmas #supermariobro #atari

Sorry folks, no Black Friday deals on eBay for video game related stuff unless you’re buying a console or some NOS games. But I still think the auctions in this post will tickle your fancy! First up is this awesome PONG Clock! Instead of reiterating what the seller wrote, I’ll simply copy and paste the auction description below:

“I’m selling my Pong clock. Designed by Sander Mulders, this is 1 of only 400 Pong clocks he ever produced. These are no longer made as Atari only allowed a very small production run. When these went on sale they sold out in one day. These are extremely rare and don’t show up often on Ebay.

I am the only owner of this clock and have kept it in excellent condition in a smoke free home. It has been displayed for about a year and kept in a box for the remainder of its time. It works flawlessly for both keeping time and for playing pong with it. A short clip of my pong clock at work can be found here: https://youtu.be/_qYFcjryfvM

Yogurtland Nintendo Bowls and Spoons, Baby Mario Japan Figure, Sega Dreamcast Watch and More! #sega #nintendo #supermariobros #nes #fallout #xbox #playstation

game-on-yogurtland-super-mario-nintendo-2016

Yogurtland had a pretty cool limited edition Super Mario Bros. bowls and spoons. The bowls and spoons showcase vintage Mario (not like we know him today) with the innocent jump in the air with his first pump, and Luigi jumping with a big smile. Ya… they still do that now but for some reason there’s something to these old animations that I love so much. I guess I saw them so much as a kid that it’s embedded in my brain. Oh well…

Today’s post won’t have too many auctions like I normally throw up here as my watchlist didn’t comprise of too many note worthy auctions. The ones that were noteworthy have expired a few days ago. But today’s auction list is short and sweet. I’m sure you’ll find something to bid on as the current bids for these auctions are quite low and all finishing today. Take a peek!
