It is been 50 a long time considering that Atari sprang to everyday living and kicked off the under no circumstances-ending video clip activity fad. And to celebrate that anniversary, we’re having two new restricted-edition Atari 2600 cartridges—Missile Command and Journey.
These cartridges are absolutely-purposeful when paired with a traditional Atari 2600 console. They attribute one of a kind artwork and a large acrylic logo, which lights up when gaming. And notably, Atari suggests that the new online games are “are manufactured to exacting standards” and use the similar ability attract as unique 2600 cartridges.
The two titles arrive in orange boxes (like their authentic release) and have a cutout window for the cartridge. They also include things like a handful of trinkets, like a whole-shade manual, an enamel pin, an embroidered patch, and a cartridge show stand.
Technically talking, these are not the very first retro re-releases offered by Atari. They are only the latest entries in Atari’s XP line, which also includes Yars’ Revenge and Saboteur. But today’s news is notable because Missile Command and Adventure are my favored Atari online games. So, there’s that.
Here’s the only dilemma Atari rates $100 for these re-released game titles. Which is at minimum 10 instances the amount you’d pay for an unique cartridge. You have to be a really serious collector to go for this things.
