Launch Dates Announced for AtGames Genesis and Atari 2600 Devices

AtGames has been creating retro gaming playback devices for quite some time, and today, they announced a final release date for their upcoming Atari 2600 and Sega Genesis/Mega Drive devices. The HDMI-capable Atari Flashback 8 Gold will be released alongside the HDMI-capable Sega Genesis Flashback for $79.99 on September 22. They will each include a selection of built-in games and also include wireless controllers.

September 1 will see the release of the Atari Flashback Portable Game Player, the Sega Ultimate Portable Game Player, the Atari Flashback 8 Classic Game Console, and the Sega Genesis Flashback without HDMI playback. The Gold consoles are definitely the ones to buy for legacy cart owners as they have cart compatibility. AtGames has had emulation issues before though – but if those are ironed out, these could be the definitive ways to enjoy your classic game collection on modern-day TVs.
