LOL. It's a standard CX-80 trak-ball that they wired in the resistors to be 2-button compatible for 7800 games.

 

It's the same $15 trak-ball Best sells new, plus $1.99 worth of resistors.

 

The $89.95 they're asking is ridiculous.

This site be in Minnesota. Hey, I live there!

 

Do we now have TWO Atari sales sites that are in dire need of a makeover? This looks like it was made in '95.

The prices look more like 1988.

Oh wait, there's also Sierra Bravo, who's website design still looks like a BBS from the 80s.

 

Whether it's Amazon, or whatever, I will predict this:

 

You could have a retro game store on the web that charges a few bucks more than the competition. You could blow the others out of the water just by having a fully-functioning ecommerce solution like thousands of other sites have enjoyed for many years. People would value convenience over saving $.

 

But that's just my theory.

Please don't buy from Bravo Siera. The BS initial is appropriate as the ass-hat that runs the place has single handedly destroyed the comp.sci.atari8bit newsgroup. He spams more than every Viagra seller combined and has for over a decade ignored polite pleas to stop.

Ha ha! I remember seeing that in the early-mid 90s, before I ever saw a web browser. You mean he's still on Usenet? Now I'm wondering why he's never doing it on AtariAge or any of the other WWW forums? Just curious.

Probably because if he tried his ass would be kicked out of her pretty quickly.

Isn't he trying to sell a used ICD Catbox [for the Jaguar] for $600?
