Good video! Wish the Vectrex would have survived and it would have been cool to see the Vectrex scaled down like Coleco's Tabletops.

Just thought I'd share that Packrat Video Games will be selling Vectrex games.  They have permission to sell the games that Classic Games Creations and Vectrexcarts.com used to sell.  Check out their site:  http://www.packratvg.com/vechbrews.html

Yes, they've been selling for other systems for a while but the Vectrex is brand new to them.  Those games were sold by vendors who no longer make those games and PackRat has been given permission to sell these.  :)

I really want to get my hands on a Vectrex. However I can never find one at a sensible price.

One day.. one day...

Sorry to go off topic here [member=4815]llayboy[/member] , what's the update on your documentary? (1up) has this been postponed?

Yes them Vectrex seem to be as rare as chicken's teeth. and i fear the older they get, the more expensive the prices will rise, as everybody that has one I'm sure can kept a watchful eye on the increased value of them. so you might have to bit the bullet in order to acquire a diamond like this.

As I doubt it will be a case were you'll see one cheaper after you snag one.

You just have to be in luck to get a cheap one these days.  The Vectrex is a unique system and it seems to be getting more attention, which raises the prices.  On occasion, though, they do sell cheap.

[member=4275]Greyfox[/member] the documentary is still going ahead but it maybe taking an online form rather than trying to get it out into the big bad world. If the film gains a bit of popularity then I will look to getting it around. It's one of those situations where real life steps in front of this as I do video work in my spare time.

I apologise for the time it's taking to get it finished

Brilliant video. Seem very likeable guys which is great to see in the scene.

The four player games sound well smart.

This blog post was made on Play Your Vectrex Day and I thought the timing was perfect:  CONSOLE OF THE MONTH (NOV 2016) – VECTREX.
