Atari's psudeo-console with 30 games and 7800-style joysticks has apparently been released, check your local Target circulars for it, its $37.77 from what I saw...

FYI, this is just another one of those crummy Famiclones with what are basically inferior NES ports of Atari games.

I posted about this.... and I was ignored.... What makes you so special? :p

But it'd still be worth the money if it had a slot for the carts.....

Yeah actually this is the 3rd time that thing has been mentioned here. Green Meanie brought it up when the flashback was announced.

I would get it if it was priced at 29.99 at its current price its just not worth it to me.

I tried it at Best Buy tonight and was horrified. I'm a fan of Desert Falcon, and the "conversion" on there almost made me cry. It was just like playing a bad Famicom pirate. The controller was awful, too...really loose and inaccurate. Granted, it had probably been handled by more than a few kids before I got to it, but if the thing's that easy to wear out...ugh...
