  1. I really think the main thing is that it is the original version of the first popular programmable video game console. Combined with the fact that it’s a bit rare, it’s not surprising that’s it’s desirable to collectors. But as a practical gaming device, it’s really probably not at all worth the extra expense. The RF might be a tad better on average, but having had a few of these things, I can say it’s not a huge difference, and I would go as far to say that a good light sixer will look better than an average heavy. And there’s practical reasons to avoid the heavies... the CX10 joysticks are even more prone to fail than the CX40s and are much harder to repair. The original select and reset switches are prone to fail (but are fairly easily replaced.) And the cart slot is extra tight, making the later Atari Corp games very difficult to insert. In short, the heavy sixer is easily the most preferable VCS for a collector. But for a practical gamer, a good light sixer might actually be the better choice.
  2. Welcome to the seventh round of the 14th 5200 HSC season! Super Cobra won the poll by thee votes. Play using the default setting. Don’t continue after losing your last helicopter. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records. The high score was set by yours truly with 31,400 points. Bust it if you can for a bonus point!

  4. Sadly, no. I’ve had an Ebay search for it since Shawn mentioned it nearly four years ago now, but I’ve never seen it come up. At this point, I’m just taking Westley’s advice...

  7. Welcome to the sixth round of the 14th 5200 HSC season! Dig Dug won the poll by two votes. Play using the default setting. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records. The high score was set by skosh with (gulp!) 5,000,010 points. Bust it if you can for a bonus point!
