    It's down to $10? Giddy-up! [​IMG]
    I haven't been able to pull the trigger at $20, but $10 is definitely a bargain.

    $6.88 for shipping, so if you can find it in a store for $20, that still might be a good option.

    I've just got to wonder why that "Activision TV Games" thingy needs so many buttons; is it designed so that both lefties and righties can use it or something? [​IMG]

    I'd rather just hook up my atari 2600. It would be much easier and much cheaper. Haha. Michael is right. Just download the emulator and the games. That way, you can get lots of games without paying for them. Isn't the internet great?

    Yeah, but of course, ROMs are illegal. Emulators aren't (unless they are licensed, like Bleem!) but the ROMs are.

    I wonder...does it have two directional pads to allow for two players? Granted, it would be a tight fit, but it would also be a nice touch.
    I notice the sound output is mono... [​IMG]

    It does look a bit fancy for 2600 games, why not just take the old school route and make it a stick + a button?

    Remember that you have to get most of the switches on there to select your game and everything as well as a stick and button.

    No Combat because it's not an Activision game.

    Do you think in 20 years they'll be selling a similar controller that has 10 Play Station 2 games built into it? [​IMG]

    If it included HERO I'd think about getting it.

    I went to Traders Village(a huge flea market) and saw something similar. Instead of activision games it had about 100 arcade/console games in it. Stargate, Millipede, Archanoid, Lode Runner, DK and DKjr., Contra etc.. it came with a light gun and an extra controller.

    But at $60 it was a little too pricey.
