Atari Flashback 2.0

Posted in Gadgets & Gizmos

This is so cool! Atari announced they will be launching the Atari Flashback 2.0, which will look like an Atari 2600 console. It will include two joysticks and 40 games such as Pong, Asteroids, Centipede, Millipede, Lunar Lander, Breakout, Missile Command and Combat. And it will only cost about $30, for endless hours of retro fun.

I left my Atari 2600 and a box full of games in Mexico when I moved to Canada 8 years ago. What the hell was I thinking?

Read the full press release.

    Yes, it’s “cool”… except for the fact that you could buy an atari 2600 with 128 built in games in mexico or europe for $30 in *1987*. Except for the fact that these systems have completely killed the classic videogame market. Except for the fact that you can download all the .rom’s for free and play them on your PC with the Original Controllers using atariage’s classic controller -> USB converter. Except for the fact that it’s just a way for a greedy corporation to make a quick buck.
