Vectrex console & games

Usually going for 50-75£ in the retro gaming market, the Vectrex (first release: 1982 US, followed by a 1983 UK & Japan release) is a pretty rare and very unique console, sporting a crisp 9" monitor and some pretty impressive vector graphics. The console only had 28 games officially released for it, but is happily supported from an incredibly lively homebrew and indy scene to this day (try the Vectrex resource center, Vectrexcarts and Vectorzoa) .

Residents of North & South America, Europe and Australia with even a passing interest in retro gaming might be interested in a pretty interesting Vectrex and video games ebay auction. The (boxed) games are Rip Off, Starship, Cleansweep and Scramble. As for the console, well, it's in mint condition but consoley flavour and obviously coming with the built-in Minestorm game and a fancy Vectrex controller.
