Voting YES! :)

It's hard to keep up with the Flashbacks. I have an Atari Flashback 6 and Atari Flashback 7, but I've seen on Amazon Atari Flashback 8 Activision Edition, Atari Flashback 8 Gold, and now there's an Atari Flashback 9. Plus I want the Flashback ColecoVision and Flashback Intellivision, but both of those are expensive now.

Is that for a real ColecoVision or the Flashback ColecoVision. Do they ship to Florida?

@Mark:

I find especially the latter two interesting too. For me this may be a good way to get into ColecoVision and Intelivision games! ... The name of the first Atari Flashback console is really 'Atari Flashback Mini 7800' as it resembles the 7800 console and it's also got some 7800 emulated games on board. After it's release there was much criticism as most people weren't even aware of the 7800 and were looking for that 2600 nostalgia. On top of things the console ironically runs on an NES chip and some games are not very well balanced! Flashback 2 was coming with a chip that resembled original hardware. I was told about hidden games and even a cartridge mod! Flashback 3-8 and as far as I understand 9 are all the same type of emulator but on each release they add more and different games. At least the 9th edition now allows software updates & upgrades via SD card. ... Usually after Christmas you will find brand new or once played Flashback consoles on the various online market places and can pick them up as a bargain! :-)

@RetroRob: It should also exist Atari 400/800 Flashback, and with SD Card can add games

I have found a bunch of flashbacks floating around cheap in my area.  Garage sales, flea markets, craigslist, etc.  $5 up to like $20.  Haven't seen the Intellivision one though.  I got a ColecoVision flashback from a guy at AtariAge.com for $15.

@S.BAZ:

The Atari Flashbacks are cheap to get here too. However I haven't found a bargain for the Intellivision or Colecovision yet! ... I noticed that you processed a couple of my requests for games on the Atari Flashback 3 console! Many thanks! Maybe you got this console too? Anyways I'll let Omar know about it and maybe we can have a little competition over Christmas! Have a good one!

@RetroRob: Hey there are no more games for the Atari Flashback 3. By the way I have the Atari Flashback 2 and there is no added game.

Mhhh, I see what you mean now! I also don't see them when I search for a single game! However I saw all my 13 Flashback 3 requests being processed in my list of completed requests. Maybe it just takes some time until they're on here. Similiar to the monthly top scorer list where there seem to be weekly updates.

Were the FB5 games newly added? Maybe my request for FB3 games was completed but as games also appear on FB5 they were added there? I think the FB5 console was not made for pal systems unfortunately.

Yeah, I looked the FB5 games up already. Apart from Video Pinball it's not one of the games I requested. My completed FB3 requests are Centipede (easy&normal), Frog Pond, Outlaw (games 13-16), Air Sea Battle (A/B), Video Pinball (A/B), Asteroids (A/B). Good games to chase scores for, eh? I still hope they're available when the site refreshes.

@omargeddon:

I asked S.Baz about the completed but missing FB3 games. He says there may be a mistake and they're not meant to be added. There are to many same games and similar platforms already and they're likely to become redundant. If we spot specific games that are different from others we can still request them. We can post them under emulated. I will start doing this soon!

@RetroRob: In this case you can play Atari Flashback 3 games and post them in Emulation category. The same for Intellivision Flashback and Colecovision Flashback = Emulation Category.

Funny, that's actually the one I wanted to play first of the requested games. I have the FB3 stored away and need to dig it out first though! ;-)
