Atari and Sega Flashback game consoles and portables announced
AtGames has announced its Autumn 2017 lineup of classic gaming hardware. This includes new premium HD versions of their classic gaming consoles: the Atari Flashback 8 Gold and the Sega Genesis Flashback.
Each console includes an amazing selection of built-in 16-bit games, as well as an impressive range of features
Sega Genesis Flashback
The latest Sega Genesis from AtGames not only boasts HDMI 720p output, but use a new Genesis 6-button wireless controller.
Its UI uses large, high-resolution boxart to better replicate a digital shelving system and it also features enhanced stereo audio.
With 85 games and cartridge support for most games, anyone with a large Genesis library looking to replay their collection on a modern TV is in for a treat with this.
Built-in all-time favorites include the Sonic series, Mortal Kombat series, Phantasy Star series, and Shining Force series games.
Atari Flashback 8 Gold
If your gaming history goes even further back (guilty, your honour) then here’s an even bigger blast from the past.
The Atari Flashback 8 Gold brings you a wood grain-style finish for that 70s vibe.
You also get a pair of wireless joysticks and HDMI output.
Save states and scanlines are also supported with this device, which has over 120 games included – making it an outstanding value for the money.
Games include legends like Activision’s Pitfall! and Taito’s Space Invaders, as well as many other all-time Atari 2600 classics like Kaboom!, River Raid, Centipede, and Millipede.
Sega and Atari portables
Both of these portable gamers allow you to add more games via an optional SD card and sport a high res 2.8-inch display.
You can even output your games through your big telly via an optional cable. They are both powered by an in-built rechargeable battery.
