    Would've been a fun stocking filler but we all know it will have a stupidly high price.

    Are people really willing to shell out money for what amounts to a single fifty-year-old game?

    looks cool. I'd be interested in if for $10 maybe $15 anything over that'd be overpriced for me.

    Atari Jaguar Mini? Nah. Atari Lynx Mini? Nope.

    This. This is what's going to save Atari this Christmas.

    Hopefully once the next recession hits , people wont be so willing to waste their money on useless garbage consoles like this
    ( including the Nintendo game and watch)

    Nice to see the Atari name still hanging in there, even if it's not the same company from the 20th century. I wonder when they'll get that Atari hotel done?

    Well you know what would be better? An Atari handheld that could play Atari-exclusive games from the 2600 to the Jaguar, also including the Lynx and with mapped buttons for the 5200 and Jaguar.

    I wonder if this handheld's LCD can display color, or only black and white. If the former, it may open up some more interesting use cases if it is ever possible to run other software on it.

    I hate to be that bitch (that's a lie, I love being that bitch), but in order for the VCS to be a failure, doesn't it actually have to come out and, like, fail? Yeah yeah, it's coming in November... this time. They've lied about coming as much as I used to so my ex-boyfriend would leave me alone. I'll believe it when the voluptuous soprano finishes her aria.

    As far as this little pong machine goes. It plays one game in black and white. Maybe the new Atari can get this out without fucking it up. I dunno. This may be too much tech for them to handle.

    I love PONG consoles with actual knob controllers, but it being in a form factor like this doesn’t seem.. pleasant to use. Nor cheap.
