  1. Cool, but for $349 I think the Costco cab is a better buy, even with only 2 games. My money is on this and the Costco PCBA being the same, so it might be possible to flash the Costco board with the extra games (provided someone gets a backup of the HSN board).
  2. Nice job! I've got a similar issue on an Astrocade that I need fixed but haven't gotten around to it.
  3. Not to mentioned two companies: Bally, then Astrovision, and there may have been a gap in sales between '79 and '81 (this part isn't clear in the Wikipedia article). The system still suffers from name confusion to this day: its often called the "Bally Astrocade" which in fact its not - Bally sold the Bally Home Library Computer and Bally Professional Arcade, while I believe Astrovision re-released it as the Bally Computer System and later the Astrocade (which was originally going to be called the "Astro Arcade"). And of course for a while Astrovision sold stock of whatever they had to clear out old stock, then I guess to clear everything out when they tried to hold off bankruptcy. I often get called out on the system name but I stand by what I feel is correct, and of course, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It's a great and often highly underrated system.
  4. Astrocade (well, Bally Computer System model, actually) was for sale at Play World on Long Island, NY in Syosset. It's where I first saw the console and was like "WOW, what the heck is that?" It looked amazing, as did the games, but I had never heard of it before. It became my second system, the first being the Atari 2600.
  5. "And those TMNT units, which are exclusive to Walmart for now, will only be available in limited quantities, Bachrach warned." Sure they're limited, just like the whole wave 1 cabinets were...
  6. Years before that, Telegames couldn't give these away, new in box and all. Thought about picking one up but I already had enough actual ColecoVisions so I passed.
  7. This conversation isn’t going anywhere, so let’s just leave it here. Thanks for the feedback

    There's no list here guys, I don't think posting here that you want one will help. Those of us that have gotten one have reached out to Thomas directly, at least that's how it worked for me. Just don't want people getting their hope's up thinking posting here is the way to get one. Read through the history on the post and you'll see what I mean.
  9. Um, yeah no, pretty sure that's not what he meant.
  10. Not quite the same thing, pretty sure it was advertised & hosted in some way- wasn't there a web page for it? Anyway doesn't seem like its going to be an issue anymore.
  11. And those of us with carpal tunnel syndrome can't use the controllers at all, I had to buy a pair of Atari 7800 Euro gamepads to continue to play my Coleco.
