      PS - I didn't know the CX40 single button works on the 7800 version either. I need to go give that a try.

  9. Visited The Final Stage Video Game shop near Concord, NH today & picked up a mint copy of Gravitar!

    1. chas10e


      that place is awesome !!!!

    2. Piggles


      I used to buy from them when they were in Hillsboro. Excellent shop. How much did Gravitar go for and did they have any more?

    3. mmervine


      $7, but it was their last copy...they have several mint 2600 and 7800 games!

      Interesting thing about Burger Time is that it might be owned by SNK/Playmore now.
