Nerd Buy: Atari 2600 “Retro” Handheld

by Phil Wheat

One of the most iconic video games consoles, the Atari 2600, is returning as a handheld console and [yet another] plug and play TV joystick in time for Christmas 2017.

The Atari Retro Handheld features the immortalised wood effect and includes 50 classic games built-in, including: Asteroids, Pong, Centipede, Missile Command, Breakout, Millipede and more. In addition to featuring a 2.4″ screen, it also includes A/V output (with HDMI adapter available) and super responsive buttons with a stylish analogue control stick.

The Atari Retro Plug and Play TV Joystick features a progressive design, with the inclusion of an arcade style button on top of the controller and will connect to your TV with the included A/V cable (or HDMI with an available adapter). It will feature the same 50 built-in games as the handheld.

Officially licensed by Atari and developed by PQube, the Atari Retro Handheld console will retail for just £34.99 and the Atari Retro Plug and Play TV Joystick at just £24.99. Both are available to pre-order now at FunstockRetro.co.uk
