One of the best Vectrex dust covers for your Vectrex is still being made new today by "papa*nannysfunstuff" (previously known as Nanny's Sewing Treats). Located eBay as "papa*nannysfunstuff", and on AtariAge.com the Atari Age Member "oldjd". The nice thing about their dust covers is Jay Smith was informed about their desire to make a new dust cover and he approved them. Their Vectrex dust covers are made of a soft black pleather is form fitted to the Vectrex and embroidered with a USA GCE Vectrex logo on the front of the cover. The inside is soft to allow the cover to be used many times without concern about altering the factory finish of the your Vectrex. I was happy to loan their team a Vectrex years console ago for use in making an original pattern for their Vectrex Dust cover. I am totally satisfied with the result and use the cover I purchased on my "daily player" console. I was happy to connect Nanny's Sewing Treats with "Burgetime Chef" Keith Robinson for an approved Intellivision console dust cover. From there things certainly took off and they now make quality dust covers for many different kinds of classic consoles, and a few classic computers too. Love the fact they want to do approved covers and insist on making an original pattern from the actual console for each dust cover they produce. Love that each cover is finished with an embroidered logo for the particular system. If you are in need a quality "Made in the USA" dust cover for your Vectrex and other classic system see the links below to contact and purchase:

Alpha-Beta-Hera! A games from the classic arcade days I really like is a game called "Juno First". Now there is a Vectrex version in production with a clever play on the title called "Hera Primera". The game is still in development but the author "Peiselull" has been kind enough to put up an interim copy of "Hera Primera" over on www.forum64.de. Game play and music are already very good. I will be following more developments of this title in the future with keen interest! Peiselull authorized mirroring of the game on other sites. So without further delay see the link below to download a copy of "Hera Primera". A link to the original forum thread is also presented below.:

What's better than original developer documentation for the Vectrex? Original era developer documentation that lives on and is updated! My thanks to Paul Newell and John Hall for reminding me of this site and providing LOTS of updates since I last looked at it. All good developer resources provide a nice mix of history along with the technical details. While 'A Bit of Vectrex History' leans more to the technical side of the Vectrex, there is still some cool story points to add flavor and spice. You can find 'A Bit of Vectrex History' at the link below.

November 18, 2016: The hardware just keeps flowing in 2016! Now we have Thomas Sontowski (of soon to be released Vectrex "Robot Arena" fame) producing his own Vectrex MultiCart / DevCart called "VecFever". I've got the fever from the name alone! But "VecFever" is not just another multicart. Thomas's cart takes the idea of a multicart a step further Below is a list of the prototype features described in the "first look" video.
Specifications (copied from Kiwi's YouTube video description):
VecFever will coming pre-loaded with Thomas Sontowski's incredible game "Robot Arena" is a great extra for this new Vectrex hardware. I wonder what is more enticing for the purchase? VecFever with a Robot Arena bonus? Or Robot Arena with a VecFever bonus? Either way, every Vectrex enthusiast is hot and bothered waiting for VecFever's release.

It's interesting timing today on the topic of Vectrex Multicarts. I have been answering quite a few question as late for current availability and historical topics. Well today "VectrexRoli" has released another one of his excellent YouTube videos covering the topic of the best currently shipping Vectrex Multicarts. He also discusses some of the advantages of each style of multicart. When watching VectrexRoli's videos be sure to expand the video description by clicking "Show More". Because he usually offers much more information than just the video topics. See below for the links to VectrexRoli's video as well as some of the resource links for the different multicart designs discussed.

The coprocessor cart we have all been waiting for! Vectrex32 is a powerful development cart with BASIC built in. But not only just a language. Vectrex32 has powerful processor with real-time connectivity to your PC providing the ability to write, debug, and run games interactively on the Vectrex. So much power in fact that your Vectrex can offload all the heavy processing externally to the Vectrex32 cart. That leaves the main 6809 CPU tasked only with controller i/o, sound, and vector display. Hidden line removal other dynamic image generation can now be perform real-time, negating the requirement for any pre-calculated images store in lookup tables. Vectrex32 adds so much capability to the Vectrex it is simply better that you head on over to Vectrex32.com and check it out for yourself. Find out more here: Vectrex32 Main web site

September 15, 2016 A rather rare Japanese Vectrex Demonstration Machine came up on auction on Yahoo Auctions. The item being sold included the a fully working ""Demonstration Machine" Demo display case with coin-operated timer, a fully working Bandai Vectrex (光速船), an extra overlay for Solar Quest, and display case keys. Super rare and for sure another Vectrex "Holy Grail" item on any Vectrex collector's list. As the bidding progressed the final price ended up quite high for a Vectrex item. Not the highest ever paid, but definitely higher than most other items sold in Vectrex history. See below for some price statistics and links to the auction.

In case you have been absent from the Vectrex scene a while (like this site has been), the classic unreleased title "Mail Plane" has been found again. This time the game is fully playable (unlike the previous ROM Dump) to the end. Crashing more than 5 times also takes the played to the "Game Over" screen. Vectrexer (aka: Chris Romero) and www.Vectrex.com are happy to have purchased the fully playable version of the unreleased game "Mail Plane" so that the Vectrex community can enjoy this long anticipated find. The effort was made all the more sweet by the participation of several post-acquisition monetary contributors. My sincere thank you to the contributors:
  • Tony Holcomb (50tbrd),
  • Lorne Allaire,
  • Eugenio (TrekMD) Angueira,
  • Helmet Mueller (hcmffm),
  • Olivier Orillard,

  • We have generous and enthusiastic members who love the Vectrex! Thank you!
    Additional thanks To Richard Hutchinson over at Vectrex.Biz for the VecDump. This tool helped to provide an additional method to extract the Mail Plane binary from the game cart.
    My thanks to those other people who helped in others nice ways as well.

    Did you wonder where Revival Studios disappeared to? So did we! Happy to announce Revival is back in the game with two new Vectrex releases. V-Hockey: A top-view ice hockey game with arcade overtones, as your lone player (and goalkeeper) fight for control of the puck and attempt to score more goals than the opposition. Colorclash slim: A fun action game people can just pickup and play. The player has to shoot the various gems that are falling down from the top of the screen. The gems are marked with symbols and the player has to match up the symbol on his ship with the symbol on the gems. The player has to clear a number of gems each level. Colorclash has lot of new features to check out! Both titles are set to debut at Retro Spelcomputer Beurs (Retro Console Fair) to be held in Apeldoorn/The Netherlands on October 3rd 2010. For more information on "V-Hockey" and "Colorclash Slim" check out the Revival Studio web site: http://www.revival-studios.com

    August 7, 2010:
    Mr. Boston is stretching his traveling legs once again! Vectrex.com's Mr. Boston cart is now up on eBay for auction. Mr. Boston has been seen at Classic Gaming Expo (www.CGEXPO.com) but has rarely been seen elsewhere for viewing or for sale. The current Mr Boston up on eBay is a complete games with the Cart, Box, Overlay, Sleeve, Insert, and Instructions. The condition is conservatively rated at very good.

    Finding a Mr. Boston cart for sale anywhere in any condition is classified as an extremely rare event. There are only Three or four Vectrex Mr. Boston games know to exist. Of those found to date, only two are complete with all the original contents. The others are loose carts. It is safe to say that this rare game is one of the most sought Vectrex items in any Vectrex collector's list.

    Mr. Boston Liquor commissioned this promotional version of the game for the Vectrex. Mr. Boston's gameplay is exactly the same game as the Vectrex game Clean Sweep. The major difference are an ad for Mr. Boston Liquors that is displayed before the games starts. The other major difference is the replacement of the main character in the game with a Mr. Boston's top hat from the brand's logo image.

    It is assumed a Vectrex and the Mr. Boston labeled game would be left out on the counter to attract attention to the Mr. Boston brand of schnapps in order to increase store sales while providing a bit of gaming fun. A few other platforms from the same era in the early 1980's also had similar co-marketing or branding applied to help increase store sales. However, there have been no confirmed sightings of a Vectrex with a Mr. Boston cart use for store advertising at this time.
    For those interested the Mr. Boston brand still exists and is sold today. For more information look here for Mr. Boston Schnapps:

    Vectrex Clean Sweep itself was a decent Pac-Man clone. The the player controls a vacuum cleaner that must vacuum up the dollar bills scattered around the bank. The size of the vacuum increases as more bits are collected. The player must deposit them into the vault in the center when the vacuum gets full. Entering chambers in the four corners of the maze allows the player to vacuum up the robbers that are chasing the player for a short time.

    A few years ago Vectrex.com ran the auction for this Mr. Boston. At the close of the sale the final price was $3400.00 [USD] cash plus a boxed Bandai Vectrex. But that sale did not complete. The sale that completed was the closed on 2010-09-04 for $7,200.00. Funds transferred and the cart was shipped to the new owner. See this web page below for the sale. Mr. Boston is also listed at www.gamesniped.com as number seven of the ten worlds most expensive video games ever!

    If you have a desire to acquire a Vectrex Mr. Boston for your own collection now is the time to act! See item number 250678211957 on eBay:

    Update 2010-08-13: The current bid for Mr. Boston stands $3,000.00 [USD] with three days to go!

    The reserve is definitely lower than the recent King Kong price of $41,300 for the NES Stadium Events sold on February 26, 2010. But as a hint the owner relates the reserve for Mr. Boston is higher than the last sale price.

    Update 2010-08-15:  The last closing bid for Mr. Boston ended $3,827.00! Lower than the reserve price of $5K the owner set for the auction. But not by much!

    Update 2010-08-15: Even though the eBay auction didn't meet the reserve there was a flurry of emails and eBay messages afterward in which the reserve was me in post eBay offers by one of the interested buyers. If you are still interested in acquiring the game you may want to head over to Atari Ag or Digital Press and make the owner an offer. If you already know the owner's email address then feel free to send an offer in.

    Update 2010-08-22: Vectrex Mr. Boston is sold! More information on this sale coming.

    Update 2010-09-04: Vectrex Mr. Boston is effectively transferred. The final sale price for the complete Vectrex Mr. Boston game was $7,200.00!! Quite the impressive price! This sale sets a new high bar for Vectrex game values, and classic game values in general. Congratulations to the new owner of one of the most rare and valuable games on any platform or era!

While Retrozone no longer shows the USB Vectrex Controller adapter on the site, perhaps a little noise can get another batch produced. Have a look at what was over at archive.org: http://web.archive.org/web/20060213222703/http://retrousb.com/vectrex.html

    Did you miss out on the eBay auctions for the Vectrex clear and red cartridge cases? If so, then keep an eye open for them to appear on some future Vectrex titles. Be prepared to strike as few of these cartridge cases were made. Developers should email the eBay contact for availability and pricing. Alternatively, you can contact Vectrexer over at Digital Press.

    I would like to take a short break from the Vectrex world to inform the optically self flagellating gamers of another cool product. Richard H. of VecVox and VecFlash fame worked with other Virtual Boy enthusiasts Chris (not me) and Pat to produce the "FlashBoy", a flash memory cartridge for the Nintendo Virtual Boy. The FlashBoy's concept is similar to the VecFlash in that the both load games via USB cable into a flash cart allowing everyone to enjoy various titles for the Virtual Boy. The Flashboy also allows a possible jump start of the Virtual Boy homebrew development scene since cyclical testing is much easier, while still being low cost and convenient. There is even a VB coding competition in progress. If you are a collector the FlashBoy has an added bonus of being a complete and beautifully boxed product with instructions and professional support. To find more information and place and order for the FlashBoy, look here: http://www.vr32.de now back to Vectrex!

    Could this be a Vectrex cartridge case straight from the depths of Hell itself? ;-) Hurry on over to eBay to check out this rare item.: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260241954112

    Is this a newly uncovered Vectrex rarity or a secret realization of a clear cartridge case? Hurry on over to eBay to check out this rare item.: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250247763283

    We brought you the preview at CGE2K7 and now Kristof Tuts has released VECTREXIANS. This is his implementation of Galaxians on the Vectrex. Better in its final form that it was at the show this is a title you will not want to miss! Great sound! Great play action. An excellent calibration setup that should be included in all Vectrex games. Kristof has really thought this port through to ensure it's the most fun a Galaxians game can be on the Vectrex platform. Buy you copy before they are all gone!: http://www.kristofsnewvectrexgames.comli.com/

    Vectrex crazy people, you are asleep at the wheel! How do I know this? I was also asleep (or driving drunk) around the information superhighway. Check out the Vectrex find of the year that Rudy just made on the bidders hell otherwise known as eBay. Not so hellish this time! Look Here!: Vectrex with MRB!

    In case you are wondering after the eBay page expires it was a Vectrex console with a Mr. Boston Cart. France may not have baseball, but Rudy sure scored a home run with this $128.50 find! Congratulations Rudy! Along with this find there are four known copies of Mr. Boston out there, with two of them still in the box.

    Update on Fury Unlimited's upcoming Vectrex releases.! 3D Sector-X a new 3D game for the Vectrex is expected to be released in Jan/Feb of 2008. Sector-X: Ghosts of the Apocalypse release is timeframe is November 2008. Go check out the Fury Unlimited's web site for more information: http://www.furyunlimited.com/

    Special News for the Classing Gaming Expo 2007 (CGE2K7) Auction! VecFlash USB GCE2K7 Special Edition. This set has a customized tag and a special modification just for the show! In addition to the "Special Mod" this version is also the second generation of the USB version with super fast load times! All auction proceeds to go to the CGExpo charity Special Olympics. The VecFlash USB is a user loadable Vectrex Multicart and is being provided courtesy of its creator Richard Hutchinson, over at  http://www.Vectrex.BIZ (via archive.org on 2007-11-30.

    Pitcher's Duel! Well you hear it rumored and now it is confirmed. Pitcher's Duel will be offered for sale at Classic Gaming Expo 2007!: See the statement below and Read the CGE2K7 news release here:: http://www.cgexpo.com/ (via Archive.org on 2007-08-26)

    Official info from Sean Kelly:
    "Pitcher's Duel does not include an overlay. The overlay on the box front is the actual GCE overlay that was made for the game back in the day but I didn't have the time or expertise to make an overlay for the game.

    The green cartridge cases were made by me - of course. They cost about seven times as much to manufacture as the regular black ones because of the type of plastic used and the very small quantity produced. I have no intention of doing them in a rainbow of colors now - this was just a one-time thing.

    The game is fairly well-done and is about 90% complete. There are some problems with rules not being implemented or implemented incorrectly that there's actually a pretty funny story explained in the manual.

    The boxed version of the game will be limited to ONE PER PERSON at CGE. That's not to disappoint people who can't come to CGE, but rather to keep people from scalping them on eBay afterwards. The scalping is going to happen anyway, but we'd like to keep it to a minimum. Technically, the first person in line could buy them all and sell the 99 extra on eBay at a hefty profit - and you all know some persons would do that. We don't want to see that anymore than anyone else! The loose cartridges will be available after the show as long as people want them. It is the exact same game sans the green shell and box."

This place had great food, warm hospitality, and live music on a stage that invited audience members to come up and join in playing or singing. While you are in the Morro Bay area along California's beautiful coastline you might take a short side trip to have lunch or dinner at the Last Stage West when they reopen. Have a look here for more details:  http://www.LastStageWest.net
