Changes for United Kingdom Customers
Starting January 1, 2021, we will no longer able to accept and ship orders to our friends in the United Kingdom.
As of the new year there are new requirements for sellers outside the UK to collect and remit VAT for any sales less than or equal to £135. This is not a trivial undertaking, and our current store does not have the means to collect VAT for orders of £135 or less. We are actively researching new store software that will properly support collection of VAT, as well as what is required on our end to register for VAT collection and what is involved in terms of time and money to manage this on our end.
Any orders to the United Kingdom that were placed before January 1st do not fall under this provision and will be shipped without issue (mainly pre-orders for our latest games).
Here's an article on the UK.gov website that goes into this in some detail for those who want to learn more about it.
We hope this is something we can resolve reasonably quickly so we can once again ship to our customers in the United Kingdom. We do have many products listed on eBay and Etsy that can be shipped to the UK, as eBay and Etsy are responsible for collecting and remitting VAT for any sales of items on their marketplaces.
Similar rules will be going into effect in the European Union beginning July 1, 2021.
New Edladdin Super Combo and Super SMS Arcade Controllers
Our friends at Edladdin Controllers have been busy, with the release of two new arcade controllers that we have added to the AtariAge Store! These new additions are the Super Combo and Super SMS arcade controllers.
The Super Combo is a multi-console controller designed for the Atari 2600, Atari 7800, and ColecoVision, as well as the Adam computer, Atari 8-bit computers, and the Commodore 64. It's built around a Sanwa™ JLF-TP-8YT ball-top joystick with an octagonal restrictor plate and four pair of Suzo-Happ pushbuttons for an authentic ambidextrous arcade experience. Use your keypad overlays for an authentic ColecoVision experience, thanks to the custom 3D printed keypad frame. Simply slide them under the frame from the right edge, just like on the original ColecoVision and Adam controllers.
The Super SMS transforms gameplay on all the great Sega Master System joystick games, like Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Afterburner, Choplifter, Double Dragon, Psycho Fox, and - of course - the Sonic the Hedgehog games. The Super SMS is also 100% compatible with the classic Atari CX-40 joystick familiar to owners of the Atari 2600, Atari Flashback, and many of the 8-bit era computers. The octagonal restrictor plate is the perfect compromise between a 4-way and 8-way joystick, providing distinct landing points for your stick in all eight directions. The Suzo-Happ arcade pushbuttons deliver true left/right two-button control just like the original Sega Master System game pads.
We have an Edladdin Controllers section in our store where you can find a variety of Edladdin arcade controllers and accessories.

New Jaguar Titles Arrive - Pre-Order Today!
We're proud to announce the addition of three new Atari Jaguar games to the AtariAge Store, Last Strike, reBOOTed, and Brawn and Brains! We've also re-issued an older Jaguar title, Xenon 2, with an updated box and label, as well as a completely new manual! Pre-order these games today, and we'll have them shipped to you as soon as they are ready (currently aiming for the end of November).
Here's a brief description of each of the new games:
Last Strike: Last Strike is a fun shooter with both horizontal and vertical scrolling levels. You must defeat the enemies you encounter while traversing each level, rescuing any stranded humans you encounter along the way. And you'll want to rescue the humans, as you earn credits that you can later use in the shop to upgrade your ship! Some of the upgrades include the Megabomb, Twin Shot, Rear Shot, Shield, Extra Life, and Speedup. At the end of each level, you'll encounter an enemy boss that you must destroy in order to proceed to the next level!
reBOOTed: From space, to the open highway, to the sea. The worlds of Reboot return in a multi-game cartridge that will make your head spin and TV explode with hours of fun! These landmark, thoroughly updated classics, can now be easily enjoyed in one cartridge! reBOOTed is a collection of seven Jaguar games on a single 6MB cartridge! The games featured in this multipack have all been given an update with new graphics, music and other additions such as Pro Controller support and cartridge saves. Some of these titles have previously never had a physical release, while others were only available on Jaguar CD or in extremely limited runs due to production costs.
Brawn and Brains: Brawn and Brains is a collection of three unique Atari Jaguar games, each from a different Jaguar developer. This collection features Dragonkeep (Lawrence Staveley), Tiles (Rik Day), and Do the Same (Matmook/Jagware). This is the first release of these games in cartridge form, offered in an economical release with cartridge and manual.
