2600 to NES converter cart question.

Recommended Posts

So a few weeks ago I was going through the closet at my granparents house. I found about 30 2600 carts, but when I asked about where the 2600 was, they said my reclusive uncle who lives about 100+ miles away took it about 20 years ago. Working 2600's go for about 50 bucks if i'm not mistaken. Is there any way to build an NES cartridge with a connector port on top that accepts 2600 games and is able to play them using NES Hardware (maybe using dip switches on the converter to select difficultly and game modes)? I don't have very much programming knowledge at all but I am a fast learner. I can solder OK. I have an original front loader NES and a Retron3 avalible to me.

You can get a working 2600 (loose), with all the connectors for around $20 + shipping...give or take. It all depends on which model you purchase. IMHO, it would be much more logical to go that route. I'm not even thinking a converter (2600 to NES) would even be possible without packing a whole bunch of hardware into the converter.
