Atari2600.com out of commission?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any info on what's up with Atari2600.com?  I know it was a one-person operation, and the-video-game-gallery on eBay seems to still be up and running, but payment processing on the website has been down for at least a week now.  Probably longer, as that's just how long I've been trying--I haven't ordered anything from there in the last year or so.  I've sent two emails through the "contact us" page and haven't received a response.

I think they are ebay only now.

Hrm.  Feels like they should probably put something on the site to indicate that. 😕 It's unfortunate, because there are a few things still listed for sale that aren't on the eBay store that I'd love to pick up.

Nothing but fond memories of using Atari2600.com in the late 00's and earlier this decade......

 

Reasonable prices, filling up a virtual shopping cart of 10-20 cartridges in one swoop and of course the bargains to be had looking at their "Nekid Ladies & Wounded Warriors" discount section for all the classic systems.  I also appreciated the brief (but honest) game reviews that were listed.

 

All good things do come to an end though.

And most likely they're long gone.  That site hasn't been updated regularly for quite a while.

That's a shame.  Thanks for the additional confirmation though!

Yeah, it is strange that he leaves that site online without maintaining it at all. It would be pretty easy to update it and point to his eBay store, which would probably help him get further eBay business.

He was always a bit flaky, even ten years ago when the site was fully operational and business was booming, so nothing surprises me.  It's too bad because it was pretty much a go-to place to get stuff once upon a time.
