Never forget your roots. Atari is bringing back some of their classics from the 1980s age of gaming in the Flashback 3 console. The Flashback 3 resembles the old Atari 2600, and comes with two classic Atari joysticks. It’s a complete retro experience, without having to put in the hours it takes trying to get an authentic retro console to work properly, which is a little bittersweet.
The Flashback 3 is preloaded with 60 classic Atari games, which packs enough variety to whet your appetite for vintage gaming any day of the week. Highlights from the list include Asteroids, Centipede, and Adventure. There are some questionable absences, though – no Space Invaders, no Pong, and no Pitfall. Most unfortunate. Even still, if you’re a child of the ’80s, or have been a gamer since the very beginning, you’re going to find plenty of retro goodness to enjoy here.
The Atari Flashback 3 is available now for about $40. You’ll also score a retro limited edition Atari poster with your purchase.
