Atari Flashback Portable is Coming Out This Year!
« 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.

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!

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.
