Atari Flashback portable old-school gaming



The Atari Flashback is a compact package running for 15 hours at a time on 3 AAA batteries, to let you re-experience the huge Atari pixels of yesteryear. Games are uploaded via USB (though it’s not entirely clear how yet) and it has two joystick controller ports so you can even do full head-to-head gaming. Screen resolution is 320X240 and the NTSC versions will have AV out. It’ll also be in the glorious fake oak grain we’ve come to expect from quality Atari-related goods. [GT]
