And another fantastic Speccy!

I generally do try and mix things up in Retro Treasures, but I just had to break my (never really revealed) posting rules in order to let you lovely vintage gaming people know about this pretty excellent ZX Spectrum eBay auction. This particular, beautiful Sinclair micro comes with a new membrane for its keyboard, and a very handy composite mod that will allow you to connect it to modern TVs.

The Spectrum on offer also comes a video cable, the Sinclair power supply, and big selection of boxed, complete games. Among them you'll find R-Type, Driller, Carrier Command, Cobra, Match Day II, Bomb Jack, Ikari Warriors, and Batman.

Ultima: Quest of the Avatar (NES)

I have never played any western RPG on Nintendo's venerable 8-bit console, but I can't help but be intrigued by this Ultima: Quest for the Avatar (NES) eBay auction. The copy on offer seems to be in great condition and comes complete in its box. As for the game itself, it is supposed to be a slightly different, slightly cut-down of the classic Quest of the Avatar CRPG which is definitely a good thing.

One Fine ZX Spectrum+

It may not look as sleek or unique as the original Speccy models, but the improved keyboard and the reset switch of the ZX Spectrum Plus more than make up for the micro's bulkier size. Other than that it's a lovely Sinclair 8-bit, does everything you'd expect it to, and you can grab one via this ZX Spectrum + eBay auction. The computer comes complete with power supply, leads, a Sony tape player, the official manual, a third party user guide, and a box of games and tapes.

Nintendo Virtual Boy - NIB

The Virtual Boy, one of the very few Nintendo products that really bombed, was, despite its many problems, an utterly unique machine. It was a portable early-VR system with black-and-red visuals that, occasional headache aside, allowed gamers a glimpse of truly stereoscopic 3D, and sported some pretty well designed games.

You can grab one to see what the fuss was (not) all about back in the mid '90s via this Nintendo Virtual Boy eBay auction. The console on offer is essentially new, has never been used, never taken out of its packaging, and comes complete in the original box.
