Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Atari 2600 10-in-1 Joystick Review - Atari 2600 10-in-1 Joystick Review
Fri, March 03 2006 | 12:57AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Atari has had some financial troubles in the past years - the company trademark sold from company to company over the years until it was finally snatched up by Infogrames, which has used the Atari license to publish many games, including the Unreal franchise. Infogrames set up a licensing agreement with Jakk's Pacific, makers of several toy electronics, to publish a nostalgic Atari 2600 game system, ready for any standard TV. The unit comes completely intact: everything you need to play is in one piece. The reset, select, and start buttons are integrated into the base, as well as a power switch and red power LED. The video and mono audio cable are also permanently attached to the joystick's base. The game system is powered by 4 AAA batteries (not included), which are inserted into a compartment on the bottom of the base. The batteries make the base a little deeper and the weight a little heavier than an original Atari joystick. Other than that, this has the same nostalgic ergonomics of the original Atari joystick (horrible though they may be).
