Looks like the XEGS has a larger library of lightgun games than the 7800.  That's cool.

There are a few more I couldn't find videos for too!

Very nice, so a worthwhile investment for the system.  :)

Some of those look cool. I never had any on that system sadly.

They do look cool.  I have to try to find the gun to get some of these games.

Does anyone know is the SMS phaser pistol works with the Atari 7800 console? I couldn't spend the cash to get a genuine 7800/XE gun, so bought a clone that Best Electronics sells instead. The trouble with it is that it is off on its aim. You have to point to the side of the sprite you are aiming for in order to score a hit.

Yep, I have wanted that light gun because of all the good things I have heard about it. I have an Atari 400 so that is why I have not bought an XE yet. Sounds like you did well on selling your 800XL. Thanks for the information about the Atari Max flash cartridge.

I have a lightgun for PS1, too. Sadly to say that these are not working anymore on non-tube tv sets. Same problem for lightpens. If someone has a workaround or solution to make them playable on modern tv sets - let me know.

Somebody posted something about this a while ago but I don't remember what thread it was in. I think it was a Wii style sensor bar that you could plug PS1 and 2 light guns into and use on a LCD TV. Maybe somebody else knows where it is, sounded pretty cool anyway.

Thanks Shadowrunner! That would be a neat way to extend the life of old light guns.

I knew it was a good idea to own a Saturn. Thanks, Laird! You gave me five more reasons. Now I just have to get a light gun and these games. :43:
