The Flashback2 had controllers similar to the 7800 yet smaller(the worst controllers ever made)...the Flashback2 has full size 2600 controllers, and normal controller ports, so if you had old controllers or a genesis controller laying around you could use that...other than Flashback2 being way out of print cant think of a good reason to get other than it being a cool gift for an Atari Fan.
They are 60 games you can play in front of your kid and have his jaw draop when the games are not even close to what his Leapfrog can do.
The 60 games are a weird selection since their is no Pac-Man games, Q-Bert, or hardly any of the arcade clones of the day instead you get this...
