Described somewhat excitedly by its seller as an "ultra rare holy grail", the Atari Jaguar VR Headset that recently appeared on eBay is both a thing of beauty and, indeed, one of extreme rarity. The headset was the result of the collaboration between Atari and Virtuality and a product that was eventually dropped; rumour has it only 2 of them are available worldwide.
What you'll be bidding on (provided you can spend over $14,500) will be the red/low-res version of the headset and it seems to come complete with everything a Jaguar collector might need. Seller ships only within the US.

No, really, it is. It's cold, the Speccy still hasn't aged a day, a seller that ships worldwide has been discovered and this particular boxed ZX Spectrum auction will provide you with everything you need to get started and more. To be precise here's what you'll be getting: a complete, boxed 48k ZX Spectrum with a new keyboard membrane, a composite video output and a SCART adapter to connect the thing to a modern TV, a Walkman (!) to get your games loaded, a joystick with its interface and a small selection of games.

My favourite online retro gaming store, the ever brilliant Magisterrex.com, is sadly closing down. Sad times indeed, but at least it's going out with a bang and a 50% off everything sale that will end on January 13. So, yeah, better hurry up and grab your retro gear and games while you can.
Oh, and happy 2013 everyone!
