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.
