So just some random videogame player?  Super.

He held the world record for the high score in Donkey Kong and had an entire film made about his competition with Steve Wiebe for the title. He's not an A-lister by any means but it stands to reason that a significant cross section of people interested in a new Atari 2600 console may have seen The King of Kong.

Odd, just like what they call youtubers.  I guess people really don't like to work for a living anymore, fair enough.

Just a random thought. They haven't shown that system without a cartridge shoved in it have they?

Not that I've seen. I have some "concerns" about the build quality of the switches, too. I wouldn't expect a sturdy, heavy-gauge plastic case with spring loaded dust flaps over the cartridge port for example. I expect I t will be an Android-y thing in a box with a grippy cartridge edge connector, like their other clone systems.
