Atari Heavy sixer question.
« on: May 28, 2012, 16:38:24 PM »
Was the RG article slightly misleading to say that only Heavy Sixers had the Metal Shroud?

My one is a Sixer with the sheild and a red PCB, but the plastic corners are more defined, I would class this as a 2nd phase Sunnyvale VCS, not a heavy Sixer.

Ebay Beware!

Yes you are kind of right. There are later 2600's that have a metal shroud too but its far more light weight.
