Biggest thing I don't like about this is that they had an opportunity to include 7800 compatibility and of course they chose not to. The 7800 is my favorite video game system of all time. It was the pinnacle of Atari's 8-bit greatness, it had the heart of the 2600 and had the potential to be so much more. The Atari 7800 is almost always overlooked and always has been for as long as I can remember. With the exception of the very first Flashback. Hopefully Hyperkin will get around to the 7800.

I'm with you 100%. There was no reason NOT to. It would have been nice also in that I have a nice stack of 7800 game S with no working 7800 to enjoy them on. I keep missing out on one with every add I respond to or they want way too much. This could have solved that but oh well.

Perhaps it was too difficult this time around. Adding 7800 support would've required a different cartridge slot, adding another emulator and possibly different eternals. Also, I hate to admit it, but the people wanting 7800 support probably make up the minority of potential buyers.

Sounds like a dumb reason but in just though it was because they just like the name RetroN77. With 7800 capability that would make no sense.

  The name Retron77 refers to 1977, the year the 2600 came out.

Oh I know, that is why to it would make no sense to add 7800 capability in named theory anyway. LOL

I would have posted this in the Retron77 thread but this is nothing more than what is posted there. Posted here to catalog it for future review.
