No ET?

They've done a special edition of that but you will have to go digging to find it...

Soo tempted but I just know after about 2 hours of play it'll probably end up discarded in a drawer somewhere...

Had the choice of that or an Amiga but opted for the ST. Never regretted my decision as I learned a hell of a lot more about programming on that than I ever would have on the Amiga. The ST was a beautiful machine to code on.


Cannot say I was ever impressed with the 2600 games, although considering it was launched in 1977 it most certainly had a good run, but I think the 8-Bit line of Atari computers were vastly overlooked and under-appreciated.

Considering the 400/800 was released in 1979 they were way ahead of the competition at the time both in the US and the UK, what with Commodore still having the PET (then the Vic-20 in 1980) and Apple having the II, and on these shores the next couple of years saw the likes of Acorn Atom, BBC Micro and Sinclair ZX80 and 81.

It was not until 1982 when Commodore released the C64 that it truly got competition. And although sonically the C64 hands down beat it, graphically the C64 was only marginally better. As for programming, Atari Basic was way superior.

The beige box totally gets overlooked as the classic it should be.

The trouble is, one of the best bits of the 2600 were the analogue controllers: Breakout etc just wouldn't be the same without analogue controls!

A great film for Atari and retro game fans if you haven't seen it:

An that moon patrol lol, two of my favourite games.

I'm surprised there's so much nostalgia for the Atari in the UK.

Is the ZX Spectrum remake out yet ? Now that had the games. Atic Atac, Sabre Wolf, Chuckie Egg, Skool Daze... Ahhh

Have to admit I'm not a fan of these retro remakes. They tend to be cheaply made. Instead, I have a PSP loaded with Stella. Does the job well enough.

No. I'm assuming you're talking about the handheld. It looks increasingly like it won't be finished. It's hit numerous problems, including legal issues.

Yeah, I just tracked it down myself. There`s still a ray of hope of release by end of year but info seems scarce and the comment section is riddled with requests for refunds and spite.That would such a shame, it looked great. A bit expensive but the nostalgia hit alone would offset some of that ! 8(

SD card slot? Does that mean that games other than Atari ones can't be used on this? Such as Mame and C64?

Wish it had space invaders and outrun

I’m stoked that Saboteur is on there. It was a finished but unreleased game from the last days of Atari. AtariAge gave it a proper boxed release a few years back (I did all the artwork for it too). Top game.

This will be big in 2049

And the Atari 400 has 4 joystick ports!!

Had the 800XL, bit more like a console but comparing games on both C64 and the 800Xl the 800XL usually won. Just see rescue on fractalus one of the best games ever.

Know what you mean, got emulators on my tablet with all the games from my youth, but playing them again just isn't the same, I think they should be left to my fond memories

Don't think it was released on the VCS/2600, although there are homebrew versions now available.

Outrun?!? That's like wanting The Last Of Us on the ZX81. Never happened, never gonna happen.

What about Doom on the Vic-20...never say never lol.....

Very odd screen shot, that is not 2600 Pac Man, not the original version at least. Not the version that along with ET caused the 82 video game crash in the US.

I know later homebrew versions were released, that shot looks like one of them.

Ideal for Christmas for who? Grandad?

I think I'd rather have this... argos.co.uk/pro…642?rec=PDP[7069549]:bottomSlider:P1:OHAT:alternative:6998642:NczU5JVLZDrd3ysTXPHh

I'm waiting for this to come out.

Only issue is it has no sdcard slot. Wish all these reimagined consoles of the past looked so slick

Yeah, such a great documentary. I actually felt really choked up for Howard Warshaw after seeing what he went through. An emotional rollercoaster, especially at the dig site near the end of the movie!
