  1. The Atari Museum has a Youtube channel now and it has some very interesting videos. Lets start with this one: Here's one about the XL computers and the Mindlink: I would keep an eye on it for more interesting videos.
  2. Apparently AtGames is being sued by Bandai Namco over Ms.Pacman. https://www.worldipreview.com/news/game-maker-sues-over-ms-pac-man-18676 https://www.polygon.com/2019/9/25/20884111/bandai-namco-atgames-lawsuit-ms-pac-man-pac-man-flashback-blast-copyright-infringement
  3. Is this Songbird's Ebay store? They have the boxes on their store: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-Lynx-game-boxes-x10-BRAND-NEW/123886778526?hash=item1cd83a389e:g:ExsAAOSwbIZdYy6V They also have Zaku: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Zaku-Atari-Lynx-Game-BRAND-NEW-with-cart-box-and-manual/123881717389?hash=item1cd7ecfe8d:g:2PsAAOSw4UNce-o5 Most of the prices seem pretty much like Songbird charges except Zaku.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Alien Brigade, Midnight Mutants, Commando,Asteroids, Desert Falcon. Maybe some homebrews?
  8. Please "Atari" , just release a 7800 collection on consoles.
  9. 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.

  10. 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?
  11. No, Atari Games and Atari Corp were totally separate companies. They did not seem to interact with each other until 1989 or 1990.
  12. My mom had a 2600 and I got interested in Atari though that.
  13. 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.

  14. 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.
