Peep dis, yo. That’s right: an Atari 2600…not the crappy inside-a-controller version, but an officially licensed miniature version of the console with buttons instead of those stupid switches and original game controllers…for $30 US. Available at Wal*Mart (who pays better than the unions protesting it) and Best Buy, among others, in October.
It even comes with Yars’ Revenge and Yars’ Return. I played one of the Yar games for many, many hours. The thing even comes with Battlezone, which is arguably the first 3D first-person shooter (though the first version of Battlezone was a black-and-white arcade game…actually green-and-black if memory serves). Follow the links and check out the online manual with original-style package graphics and some super-cool screenshots. Behold, kiddies, this is what we had to make do with for game-playing experience 25 years ago. Bet your pixellated sex acts don’t look so crappy now, huh?
