The Failed Promise of the VCS/2600 Trak-Ball Controller


Recommended Posts

Did you know that Atari made a trak ball for the 2600 but didn't release one single game that supported it? Be sure to check out long-time 2600 CONNECTION staff writer Scott Stilphen's excellent and in-depth article "The Failed Promise of the VCS/2600 Trak-Ball Controller."




I do not own a track ball for the 2600 right now. I want to get one!


Years ago, in the early 1990s, I picked up one of the models that looks like the Atai 800XL at Child world or Kay Bee Toys - I cannot recall.

I needed $ so I sold it.  Damn!


What do you think about the trak ball? Which model do you own?
