  • I recently purchased a Atari 10-in-1 [thinkgeek.com] thingy and it's about the most fun you can have with $22.99. Owning an original would be pretty cool though.
    • I have my eye on those, as well. I finally decided what I really wanted was to get back into gaming; I already have a 2600 and several games, though not all the ones in those 10-in-1 systems. I can play most of the ones I don't have through emulators, but there's still some I'd like to get ahold of.

      There used to be a business called Hozer Video that would make you a cartridge of any Atari game ever made. I just found out last night they went out of business after personality conflicts. I'm extremely annoyed. There are likely now some games I'll never be able to play that I wanted to get through them. I love those old games; performance was impossible, so playability was the watchword.

      As I said, I already own a 2600, but it is a priceless gift from my father when I was a boy, so I could never open it and take a soldering iron to it. I'm probably not too good at that kind of thing anyway, so the Brazilian model that already had A/V cables would have been nice, but end the end I decided to pass. I may be able to inherit an extra 2600 from my brother-in-law, though, I hear.

      Meanwhile, I am most definitely going to acquire a 5200. I have longed for one of those machines for nearly twenty years. I've only seen one in my life, and I almost cried when that friend (who I didn't get to see more than once a year or so) told me he'd gotten rid of his and gotten a Nintendo.
