  1. I'v ordered from Best a few times and never had trouble. They were small orders through email though and items that were easy to get to I suppose.
  2. Copied from website: The New 2019 Best CX78 JoyPad controller Upgrade / Rebuild Kit. Includes the Best designed New 2019 Upgraded / Longer / Beefed up CX78 cable, two New stronger FR4 Glass Epoxy Gold plated CX78 PCB boards, New Gold plated 6 mm dot X / Y and two Fire buttons with Gold plated 6 mm dot upgraded Silicon pads all with New tactical feed back functions, 6 new Phillips Stainless Steel screws. The New Best CX78 Cable is already soldered onto the 2 new stronger PCB boards, making this CX78 upgrade kit, a solder less type of installation. All that required to install this CX78 upgrade kit, is a small Philips screwdriver to take apart the stock CX78 JoyPad, Drill with a small drill bit (or a rat tail round file or easy out hole opener), small diagonal cutters and a small Phillips screwdriver to put it back together. Complete Best CX78 Upgrade instructions included. CB103168 $36.95
  3. I was recently browsing Best's website and apparently they now have an upgrade kit for the 7800 Joypad available. It seems to be what people wanted. http://www.best-electronics-ca.com/Best CX78 Upgrade kit 2.htm
  4. Alien Brigade, Midnight Mutants, Commando,Asteroids, Desert Falcon. Maybe some homebrews?
  5. Please "Atari" , just release a 7800 collection on consoles.
  6. I stumbled upon some interesting things in a podcast about the unreleased Odyssey 3 console. It turns out that Philips and Mattel were working together on something in 1983.

  7. I wasn't sure where to post this because it technically isn't a dedicated console. It will use cartridges. Link: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2019/04/first_images_of_cartridge-based_retro_console_the_evercade_revealed The first cart is a 20 game Atari game compilation. The reason I'm posting this here is that I saw that It has four 7800 games included! This is the first time 7800 games have been released in a more modern way than the Flashback one right?
  8. No, Atari Games and Atari Corp were totally separate companies. They did not seem to interact with each other until 1989 or 1990.
  9. My mom had a 2600 and I got interested in Atari though that.
  10. Well,there is Nintendo Force Magazine.It is bi-monthly and launched the month after Nintendo Power was discontinued. It covers everything Nintendo.Right now it's on Patreon for $4.99 an issue US, and $5.99 an issue in Canada.It also has a digital version for $2.99 an issue. I am currently a subscriber.

  11. Atari was experimenting with VR in the 1980's. https://killscreen.com/versions/ataris-secret-vr-experiments-of-the-1980s/ It shows how far Atari was thinking ahead back then.
  12. I see that Best Electronics has a new upgraded 7800 power supply. http://www.best-electronics-ca.com/New%20Best%207800%20Power%20supply.htm It looks very interesting and the description makes me want to buy one.
  13. There was an option for multi track audio in the broadcast settings on the TV.It was set to stereo and I turned it to mono. I didn't find it before because it was not in the audio options. It seems to have fixed it.I tested it on the Jr.
  14. I"ve been looking for the third one.Was it even in a game?The 7800 is in it. If it was it had to have been in a game released after June 1984 when the 7800 was revealed. http://www.randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-history-1984.html It is an Atari Inc catalog so it had to have before Atari Corp formed.According to this page there were only two Atari games released after the 7800 reveal, Stargate and Gremlins. I have never seen a sealed 1984 release of ether game never mind a boxed version on Ebay.
