I want honest answers, if I opened up a real store where you could buy real stuff, would you or your parents be willing to buy anything? Not only would I make the items cheap but you'd also get 500 Viz for each US $1 you spent in the store. All profit would be put toward the server cost and for new features.

Store items would include:

-A PC Controller
which would be used for playing the RGR games and would be automatically set up to play the games without having to setup any controller settings (I'd make the default controller input settings of the systems assigned to and based on this controller which would also be the official controller used for the RGR).

-USB Controller Adapter
there'd be different ones for each system, basically would be an adapter you'd plug into your USB port which would allow you to plugin the real controllers for these original systems

-Classic PC Controllers
controllers which would be identical to each of the systems in the RGR that would plug right into your PC so that you can play the systems with the controller they were meant to be played with

-Game toys
toys or items based on video games

-Other Vizzed Merchandise
basically other various things designed by vizzed or with the vizzed logo on it such as t-shirts, mouse pads, etc. Here's a shirt I designed a while back:

The only reason I said maybe instead of yes is because I don't know if I'll have money to buy stuff.

I know you wouldn't since you're a kid but it's a matter of whether your parents would be willing to buy something for you from the site.

It would depend on which games the toys were from & what the merchandise looked like.

I like the first example of the t-shirt better. It looks like Master Chief got dropped out of nowhere into the Mushroom Kingdom & he has no idea where he's at.

I think you should there are unlimited possibilities with it.

You could even sell Viz in there, gift cards, or even some sort of awesome package where if you pay so and so you can play every game for free etc...

Whatever doesn't do good in the store you can just discontinue that item.

I honestly don't see what good a poll will do in deciding this matter though, I think your better actually making it.

Most the people answering this poll will probably say maybe or no. Don't let that fool you though cause a majority of purchases will probably be from people who are not members yet just like with the donations, there really is no way of telling how well it will do till you actually make it

I voted yes. I like the idea of a preset PC controller to play the games with. But I don't know if I'd buy anything else if I didn't need it. I've once thought about Vizzed having a store. The idea popped in my head a while back, but I never gave it much thought. I will say it would be a good idea if you're looking to generate profit. You may not get a lot of buyers, at first anyway, but every item sold helps. Keep that in mind.

I would buy things if Vizzed opened up a real store. And I am being serious about this too, I would be happy if you had a store, and if you would be able to give more details and specifications about what you would sell, then I would be able to tell you what I would buy. Perhaps it would start off as a small shop, and then a few years later you would be able to expand upon your business.

I'm curious, though- would you charge for just the item, or add in shipping costs with it?

The shipping would probably be a flat rate so I could just add that into the overall cost if that's more convenient. Of course, if it's to other countries, the shipping would be higher since it's more expensive to ship overseas.
