Once they're gone they're gone! buy old consoles and scavenge them. That is till someone makes an fpga version

I got lucky in that the retro game store around the corner from me let me buy 5 of their junker 2600s that didn't work and they didn't feel like working on for $5 each. To me it was worth that price for all the parts I could use from them. I've actually not even attempted to fire them up to see what is wrong to fix them because I've got spares of working 2600s already. So to have these already labeled as bad and able to snag parts of em I'm okay with.


Makes up for the dozen or so I had about 20years ago that were parts units that got ...."tossed" out of my mothers garage when the aunt moved in and I was away with a new wife and house of my own at the time...grrrr

Wow. Best is really charging a lot for their TIA chips. I picked some up a few months ago and never paid more than 12.95 or so each for the TSU branded ones.
