yeah, you’re right, it should be “north america”, not “usa”. changed that.
so finally the article is online! i actually did a quite longish interview with the author matt kwong a while ago. too bad there is (was) no way to get one of the vbs. btw, i was told that the vbs were not sealed, aka shrinkwrapped, in contrast to what the article says.
That’s a pretty cool article. BTW, I’ve had several brand new VBs… I sold a couple 6 or 7 years ago, and they didn’t sell for that much (I think $50-$75… they still popped up on ebay every now and then). Then I sold another ~3 years ago and it sold for $250 on ebay… and they actually bought it to play, not to keep unopened (they asked me to test it before shipping). I also sold an unopened Mosaic VB, which sold for ~$350.
