@Akuza   I'm new to the GC, so I'm learning about the system and the extras for it.  :)

Huge fan of the wavebird.  Have one myself and they normally sell on eBay for a fair bit more than 10!

Yes, I checked on Ebay. They are not cheap.  Good ones sell between $35 and $45.  I'm thinking of getting one.  :)

I had the itch for a new piece of gaming hardware yesterday, so after looking around ebay for a couple of hours I bought an Atari XE! It comes with the light gun, controller, and a few games and looks like it's in great condition. I will post some pics when it shows up. Time to explore the world of the Atari 8 bit :113:

I'm not too familiar with the Atari 8 bits.

I've just Googled it and looks like a pretty neat machine. Similar style to the ST.
Be interested to see it mate.

I'm not too familiar with the 8 bits either, so this is going to be a great way to learn! It's basically a computer but inside a console shell. It will play all the Atari 8 bit computer cartridges out of the box, and you can add a tape and disk drive to play the rest of the games. Looking forward to trying it out :)
