That's definitely interesting about the TAC-2. I had no idea they were still selling it by 1988, though I'm glad they were because I've always loved that joystick. Putting it by the 7800 really gives the wrong impression; even if there was a 7800 TAC-2 (though it definitely seems to be the standard 2600 TAC-2), there's no way you could play two-button 7800 games with that particular configuration anyway; you'd have both thumbs on the buttons, but how would you control the joystick? Would have been great for single-button 7800 games and the 2600 titles though, IMO.
Thanks for sharing this man!
I'm not too knowledgeable about 2600 3rd party joysticks...Don't really remember seeing that one before at all....& yea, guess the fact that I've never seen or imagined a 2 button 2600 joystick & that I was so suprised to see this (seemingly) advertised by Sears as one for the 7800 , I overlooked how the configuration wouldn't work out..Does seem cool for strictly 2600 games though, I like it's design
Also I'm guessing the 2600 Baseball, Boxing, Tennis and most likely Football advertised are all from the "Realsports" series by that time, but for some reason they didn't list them that way?
