How Many 2600's Do You Own

Recommended Posts

I have a couple dozen in storage, though I won't swear that most work. I have two that I know work at home, including my mid 80's vader I got for christmas. I keep the broken ones because I figure they are easy to fix, I'm just one of those that suffers from the lazies and never do anything like that.

I've got my childhood woodgrain system (recently repaired) and my grandparents' 2600 Jr., as well as a Coleco expansion module 1 and 7800 to game on. Hopefully I'll be well set for my VCS gaming for years to come with that arrangement!

These are the 5 2600 systems I have, the 6 switch I basically got back from the police department after they tracked down the thief that took it in 2003, and they only kept following up on the report because I kept checking up on the outcome. Had I not they would have dropped it, and the other 4 2600's were literally dropped off on my doorstep for a mere $90 plus 39 games came with it and a bag of joysticks as shown in the 3rd photo, the other 2 2600's are out of the shot because I didn't exactly want to roll backward out into the street to get the whole shot :P:

I have two 2600s. Not sure what they are called. One has four switches and one has six.

6. Atari reland black 4 switch (modded)

Used to have three, now it's down to just one. It's out of commission these days, but I still keep it kicking around for nostalgia value.

I've got a Sears Video Arcade II, which I know is just the Japanese 2600 with a different name on the label. I've always wanted the original classic, though, but so far they're out of my price range, especially since it wouldn't be so simple as to trade in my SVAII for the wood-grained granddad itself.

 

Definitely on my list, though. One day.

Where do you all get all of these? I feel so under funded with just the one 2600 now...

 

Think I got mine all on Ebay. Mine were all under $50, including at least a few games with each.

 

I have a Sears heavy sixer, a 4 switch Atari woody, and a 7800, all boxed. I used to have a Sears VA II but pretty sure I sold it - I decided at one point that all I really *need* is a 7800, and beyond that all I really *want* is a heavy sixer, one proper Atari-branded VCS, and maybe someday if I'm lucky again a 2800. (I say again because I found one boxed up in a store once and passed on it like a doofus.)

Ive actually been considering getting a 7800 in place of my 2600 but the compatibility issues on certain models makes me nervous. And man, I'd want a 2800 for the controllers alone! Now that I've thought about it, would those controllers work on a 2600/7800?

I have more Sears light sixers than all other models combined. I don't recall how I got so many...
