Why to buy Atari Flashback 8 Gold 120 Built-In Games :
120 built-in games
The Flashback 8 Gold includes such 2600 1970s mainstays as Adventure, Combat, Night Driver and Space War, as well as later games like Haunted House, Yars' Revenge and the Swordquest series. It also includes several original Activision titles, including Pitfall, Kaboom, Chopper Command, H.E.R.O. and River Raid. Alas, unlike the AtGames latest Sega box, the Atari version will not accept vintage cartridges -- you're limited to the built-in games.
720p HDMI video output
Previous AtGames consoles were restricted to old-fashioned RCA composite video. The Flashback 8 Gold (and the new Sega console) take a page from Nintendo's book and offer HDMI connectors. While the games will still have primitive graphics by today's standards, this at least offers easy one-cable connection to modern HDTVs.
Pause, save and rewind support
In another feature seen earlier on the NES Classic, the Flashback 8 Gold will offer pause and resume and same game slots -- a welcome respite if you need a bathroom break while racking up a new personal best on Asteroids. You can also apparently "rewind" games a few seconds.
Two wireless controllers included
The Flashback 8 Gold includes two wireless Atari joysticks. And these are said to incorporate true 2.4GHz radios, not the infrared versions that have frustrated Amazon reviewers of AtGames' earlier Sega collections by limiting connectivity to line-of-sight.
