Eye of the Beholder (SNES)

As traditional dungeon hacks aren't the most commonly available game on the SNES, and as SSI's Eye of the Beholder remains a truly classic RPG based on the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons ruleset, I'd say bidding on this Eye of the Beholder (SNES) eBay auction might be a good idea. Provided you enjoy your digital RPGs that is.

The game comes in its original box, and should only run on NTSC SNES consoles. Seller ships worldwide.

The definitive Amiga CD32

Commodore almost got it right with the Amiga CD32 console, but its neat, slightly upgraded console version of the A1200 was too little too late.

On the other hand this unique machine is a great thing to own and play, and this is a lovely Amiga CD32 eBay auction.

The console on offer comes with mouse, cables, PSU, the impressive Terrible Fire Expansion Module, and an 8GB CF card filled to the brim with software. This Amiga CD32 seems to be in excellent condition, has been tested and is working.

Oh, it's a Vectrex 3D Imager!

Haven't seen one of those for quite some time, but I do have to admit that the Vectrex 3D Imager headset seems incredibly elegant when compared to today's headsets. It's not much of a VR system admittedly, but it will allow you to play certain Vectrex games in stereoscopic 3D, and that was hugely impressive back then. That is also very rare today, so if interested in one complete in its box do have a look at this Vectrex 3D Imager eBay auction.

Combining a decent (but decidedly failed) 8-bit console with an improved CPC 464 under the same sleek-for-the-time hood, the Amstrad 464 Plus was a lovely, well-priced micro that along with the 6128 Plus helped prolong the life of Amstrad's classic line well into the '90s.
