Wanted some atari flashback controllers to fool around with. Found a red and black atari flashback 1 on ebay with 2 controllers. No ac or av cord. If I buy it and keep the controllers would the flashback be worth anything? Would anyone buy a flashback or is flashabck 1 not worth anything?
??

FB1 is a POS and no one wants them.
The joysticks are not compatible with any other system, so would need a total make over to use them

I'm sorry I thought there was a technical term. That is just personal preference then. It may not be moddable but still has some good games builtin. So somebody must want it. As for the controllers I know they only work on fb but I was going to gut them and mod them.

Hey now, the FB is not the greatest thing out there but it isn't that bad. It's playable, but the controllers are real hand crampers. They're just too small and the configuration is not really right for hands. What would be neat is to mod some NES controllers to work on it. That would make it more enjoyable of a system.

No matter what, there is probably close to 0% chance that someone would want to buy a flashback with no controllers or power adapter, I just don't see it happening. There is a game store locally that has a flashback with the box for ten bucks and no one has bought in in over a year. I just dont know what you would hope to get out of the bare unit with a low market value for even ones in the box with everything.
