Atari Flashback 5
« on: October 22, 2014, 03:26:54 AM »
is coming for Christmas season 2014: http://www.dollargeneral.com/product/index.jsp?productId=15702686

Looks like it will have twelve M-Network games not on earlier models, along with five homebrews I have not seen before. May be worth picking up...

Return to Haunted House? That must be a homebrew, no? 
Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Tempting.  How many games do they usually have on them?

Most of the ones I've seen usually have between 50 and 70 games. This one says 92 which is a great deal!

Yes, the Atari FB 4 had 75 games. Earlier models had 60. This really is a great deal. Does Europe not get many of these flashback systems?

I went to Dollar General tonight with every intent of buying Atari FB 5. Wouldn't you know it, they had one Sega Genesis portable with SD card support. I couldn't pass it up because I missed out on this entirely last year. Got to the register ready to lay down $40 as marked. The cashier told me they were on sale today for $28 and this was the last one they had in stock. Kaching! Got this thing home and am thoroughly impressed by the quality and ability to download ROM's for play. Sega Genesis heaven!

Only a pimp with additional games, old concept to get some fresh money out of retro fans.
If you'll buy an Atari clone with built in games then this is far better as you are able to play all cartridges.
