    That 5200 Jr model is sexy!  THAT's the 5200 that should have been released.  That's the 5200 that should be sitting in my collection.

    I have the 2600 adapter for the 5200 and it is a cool thing to have.

    TrekMD reacted to kamakazi20012 in Champ Games Robotron: 2084 Demo for Atari 2600   
    Umm...how...is...this...possible?!?  It shouldn't be doing that.  The 2600?  The system that gave us a crummy Pac-Man, a blocky Centipede, is pulling this off?  How?  OK.  We need to borrow Doc Brown's DeLorean and travel back in time to about 1980 and let Champ Games show the Atari programmers how it's done.  Period.  No ands, ifs, or buts.  Very impressive!
    The things homebrewers are doing these days with these Atari machines is impressive.  I'd love to get my hands on the revised 5200 Pac-Man. That one looks and sounds a lot better than the one the 5200 officially received.  But to see Robotron on the 2600...that couldn't have been an easy task.  I wonder if someone were to tackle it if those games like Moon Patrol and Centipede we did get could be redone to look/sound more like the arcades?

    They made the 2600 adapter for the 5200, so they were going to do the same for the 7800. I don't think they wanted 5200 owners to feel left out when the system was canceled so soon! 😣

    I agree on the 5200 pause button. That thing was a life saver. 
    I agree on the Xbox hard drive. PlayStation made me hate memory cards with a passion.  Dreamcast, too.  There was never enough space for all your games and there was always that one game that hogged a whole memory card.
    I see where they were going with four controller ports.  The 5200 was first to have them, n64 was first to use them successfully.  Just play Super Smash Bros with three friends and you will understand.
    Gyruss is one 5200 title I have been after for a long time now.

    TrekMD reacted to peteym5 in Cartridge Reprint Labels and Alternate Designs   
    I am working on providing some Labels for the Cartridges released by Video 61 for anyone who has a printer and wished to reprint the labels for them. These are alternative designs and not the actual ones currently in use. The games sold by Atari Sales are only sold with the Silver Solid Background with the colored rainbow strip above the image. If there is a decision to be made to change our cartridge label style, it will be for future game titles only. I could post all the images here, or put them all into a zip file when ready. The Styles I am have are Blue XEGS style. Colored Activision Style. Full Image Style, Silver Striped XL Style. Yellow Tengen Style, and Silver 5200 Style.

    Does anyone here really like a style that they really like?
