Very interesting, and amazing that 2600 cartridges will still play, yet NES ones would stop playing after a couple of months and you went through the cleaning ritual any time you wanted to play one.

I expect the emulator board probably holds all the rooms.. After all, the complete TOSEC Atari 8-bit rom collection is around 360Mb, zipped. It's not very big!
The thing will probably "recognise" your cart, reading only the header or something, then drag out the rom from the onboard chip.

.. I imagine..
Maybe.

I have ALL of the 2600 ROMs on a handheld. Wish I had a second one as a backup, only brought one with me from TN. Fits well in a calculator case. This would have been priceless back in the day.

Saw a preview video from John Hancock. Seems a bit pricey for what it is really when there are better alternatives out there. Although I do see the appeal of playing Atari on an Atari, in particular Yars Revenge and River Raid.

Maybe some 7800 games could be nice also.

Web / Game Dev, occasionally finishes off coding games also!

I have the black version of this that I use for 2600 and NES emulation and old retro stuff. Portable and have a mini joypad for it. Glad I could find it to bring with me.
