Amazing the detail that goes into the packaging and presentation. Really nice.

Thank you, TrekMD. Seeing a new Atari VCS gives me hope that 2021 will be a better year.

You know, I am surprised at how heavy this new VCS is.  I have to set it up.

That's pretty cool, never seen a PS1 track ball before. Are there many games for the system that have mouse support?

You mostly use the trackball for arcade games from compilations.  :)

I got the final set of patches of Activision and Atari games.  I designed the patches for Rampage, Fighter Pilot, Kung Fu Master, and Double Dragon as those games did not have official patches.  I also got another book about Atari...

So, I finally upgraded my GBA's screen and went ahead an got a new case for it as well to, essentially, remake it as if it were new.  Here's a picture of the original case and the upgraded GBA.  The new screen makes the system as different as night and day.  No more straining my eyes to play! 


And here are two multi carts for the SNES that I got.  280 games between the two carts...
