WHOA! Why not get it used for $50? Much better deal in my opinion

Holy starmites, that's a lot of bucks!!! I wouldn't even sell a console for that much, and I never will sell any console I own. Well, maybe my PSX for my PS2, but that is all. And I agree, Starkiller, $50 is a much better deal.

Wow I got a brand new in box Atari 2600 4-switch woodgrain three years ago for only $140. I might be selling mine now.

Plain old gamer :)

That is a nice collector's item. If I had billions of dollars, I would give this a home.

Atari 2600 "More games - More fun." So that's where Six Flags got their tagline from.

EDIT: And just to put things in perspective, if instead of buying the $200 Atari 2600 you purchased $200 worth of GE stock back in '78, your investment today would be worth maybe $11,500 inflation-adjusted dollars (3,400 actual dollars). If you chose Ford Motor Company instead (and held it through the recent downturn), your $200 would grown to...?: ~$1,700 IAD, $500 actual.

I f only we'd known.
