Retro Post 1977:Personal Arcade

The Arcade…At Home.

Sure, you love the arcade. Hasn’t your name been on top of the Space Invaders’ leaderboard for as long as anyone can remember? And isn’t that your autographed picture above the door as a reminder to all who dare to enter? All true. But what if you could have that same arcade experience at home? With the Atari 2600 ($180) you can enjoy intergalactic domination without contracting a deadly virus.

The personal video game console comes with two joystick controllers and a Combat game cartridge. Additional games like Space Invaders and Pac-Man are available for purchase separately. If you’re missing the crowds of adoring fans, just invite your friends over for a viewing party. Watching you blow up aliens never gets old.
