2600+ Unboxing

After a little over a decade of disinterest in Atari (and video games in general), my son rekindled my interest this past August with programming.  Little did I know that it would be an interesting time period to get back into Atari (the VCS/2600 specifically).  New games were being made, AtariAge was purchased, and a new 2600 would soon be released, among other things.  It all seemed pretty exciting.  

 

I preordered the Atari 2600+ from Amazon on September 28th.  Over the following weeks, I talked myself into preordering the other stuff too, extra joystick, paddle set, Berserk (Enhanced Edition), and Mr. Run and Jump.  My Atari 2600+ was delivered this evening, but none of the other stuff has even shipped yet. 

 

Anyways, here's some unboxing photos.  Not a review or anything yet.

The front and back of the packaging.

Once you open the top flap, there's the little VCS sitting underneath a protective plastic shield.  To the right is the box containing the joystick and game cartridge.

Underneath the console is a quick start guide and a flat box containing the HDMI and power cables.

...and here's everything you get.  The joystick has a nice feel to it.  The game cartridge comes in a little slip case.

And finally, here is a side-by-side comparison with an 80's four switch.
