Other Atari Things

Atari has put out some other game systems; the 5200, 7800, and the next-gen Jaguar systems come to mind. All of these systems died a quick death for a number of reasons: awful joysticks, no 3rd party licensing, and bad marketing among them. Nevertheless, there were some good games released for these consoles, and being able to buy them at bargain basement prices never hurts either... I got my 7800 boxed with a few 2600 games...the price was reasonable and I really wanted a decent system to play my 2600 games on. Well, when I first came online, I found a listing for O'Shea's: a place where you could supposedly could buy boxed 2600/7800 games for .80 cents each. I was skeptical, but I decided to buy some games. They came exactly as ordered-mint and Playable...so if you see any 7800 games up at auction on ebay- check around O'Shea's first...( do a search for them- I'll have the Url linked soon. I got my Jaguar for 2 reasons: the systems (core and CD) were dirt cheap ($50 for both) and so I could play Aliens vs Predator (also dirt cheap) But after picking up a few other games for it, I realized just why I got them for so little... As for the 5200, I only played with one once at a friends' house...Hopefully I'll have one of my own someday...

Other Atari Hardware

I own a Atari 7800 prosystem: it came boxed with 2 controllers, power pack and is in excellent shape. I bought my Jaguar core system on clearance at a local Toy Works- also got a component cable cord there cheap. My Jaguar CD system is complete- other than the games listed below it also came with a Myst Demo and a Tempest 2000 music soundtrack. The CD system and most of my Jaguar games were found at a Wal-Mart for awesome prices-(the CD system cost less than my Jag core console) :-) I don't own a 5200, yet...
