Title: Atari Flashback Portable is Coming Out This Year!
Post by: nosweargamer on July 08, 2016, 03:59:41 AM
At Games will be releasing a portable Atari Flashback this year!
I've included details in the video below.
What do you think? Are you interested in getting one when it comes out?
Does At Games release their stuff overseas as well?

That's very cool! I'm not a huge 2600 fan so it's not really for me but for others I'm sure this will be a must buy.

Might be interested at the right price, we normally get them here through the various retro gaming outlets...

That's really cool.  The fact that it has an SD card is excellent too.

So, is anyone getting this?  I think I'm going to. They are already on backorder on some sites!

Forgot all about it. How much are they?

Toys R Us had it for $49.  I can't find it on their site anymore.

I just ordered one of these.  Here's a video review which reveals something I was not aware of.  I won't spoil it.

Doesn't sound too bad and at that price you really can't go wrong!

Yeah, I found it for $40 at Bed Bath and Beyond and I have a 20% off coupon, so I'll end up paying about $32 for it.

Has anyone gotten the new version launched this year?  It has better emulation and ROMs that did not work before work now.

I didn't even know there was a new one. Sounds like some good improvements.

Yes.  I'm tempted to get one.  I have a 20% off coupon for Bed Bath and Beyond that drops the price.  May have to consider it.

I got the Flashback 9 this year on sale.  It's cool because it has HDMI output so it can be used on a modern TV.

Looks like there will be a third version of the Atari Flashback portable this year.  Here is a link to the game list and more details:  Full Game List for the Atari Flashback Portable (2019) (https://armchairarcade.com/perspectives/2019/10/30/full-game-list-for-the-atari-flashback-portable-2019/?fbclid=IwAR0Y0DXqNQKgnDqPAtrP8Pbbkdg4PNsSwjmCFekGmzPXkNaeGODy9QmHTss#prettyPhoto).

The never ending project, why not just buy the Atari Handheld from funstock?

Post by: TrekMD on November 06, 2019, 23:36:37 PM
I have that one but there is one significant difference between these and the Funstock one.  The latter doesn't have an SD card slot that let you add just about any title to the system.

The link works but it is out of stock as a new version is being released this year.
