Hey guys. I always thought that the cartrage slot on the 800XL was for 2600 games. I bought one cause it was only 2 bucks, but it didn't fit. What type of cartrages did it take? Carts made just for the computer? Was I under the wrong pretenses? Thanks, later.

Yes, you were under the wrong impression. The cartridge slot on the 8-bit computer line is for 8-bit computer cartridges only. Fortunately, there are a LOT of great 8-bit computer cartridge games. :)

 

Even more fortunately, most or all of those cartridge games have been converted to .XEX files and can be booted off an SIO2USB or SIO2SD device instead of trying to track down actual hardware.
