Anyone else play/collect for the 2600? Promote this thread!

Jr. Pac-Man, my man. Actually you should see about buying a 7800 online; it's backward-compatible with the 2600, and features such neat games as Food Fight and F-18 Hornet.

Though it'll be at home on my small 15 incher in my office, for a gas, I want to see how it'll look on my HDTV. :) Dash Dynamic!

SEADAWG) If you can get your hands on an Atari Flashback 2, the designer's posted instructions on the Intertubes to add a cart slot. Pretty much by design, too, as the circuit board has all the solder points helpfully labeled. I plan on doing this to mine, too... here's the site (atarimuseum.com).

Netplay would certainly have to be slower than regular play, but I'd envision something along the lines of most fantasy sports systems where you have a specific amount of time (I'd say a day or two)
