Use cartridges with Atari Flashback 2

atari flashback

The Atari Flashback is a game system that includes 40 original Atari 2600 games for about $30. The games are placed on a rom chip just like the original except it is soldered inside the case instead of on a cartridge. You can bypass the rom chip with a couple toggle switches and add an external cartridge adapter to play any of the original 2600 games. All of the pinouts are marked on board and the site has links to get the proper connector. Time to start hitting up ebay for the big game lots.

  1. Enough of these Atari things! I want to see pictures of Vince Veneziani!!! Does anyone have any pictures of Vince that they can share? After what I saw of him at Defcon, I want more. MORE!!!!

  2. wal mart carries them in the us, may be tesco (thats the big store with everything in it, thats steals the souls of small, family owned businesses, right?) might have one (although i did a web search for you, didn’t find anything at tesco, but or or whatever you brits use for suffix’s for the web had some)

    ps learn how to control the u key or i willl take it away, that goes for all brits! if someone said i had honour i would kick them in the head, since i would assume it was an insult. thats what the revolutionary war was about people, we got one too many u’s!

  3. I bought my Flashback2 today. Since you use a composite a/v cable instead of an RF switchbox, you get a crystal clear picture. Emulation is perfect. A couple of the homebrew games are a little buggy.
