The Atari 2600 Video Game System was launched in October 1977 by the Atari Corporation. It is widely considered the first commercially successful video game console to be based around the microprocessor and cartridge configuration.
"I specifically remember the day that we got an Atari 2600 games console. I remember my dad bringing it into the living room and I remember opening the box and connecting it up to our TV.
Obviously the first game we played had to be Space Invaders, and I still remember the noise those aliens made as they shuffled back and forth across the screen!
We only had two games for it!, so if we got bored of Space Invaders (which we didn't) then we could play Combat which was bundled with the console.
It wasn't until several months had passed that we (well my dad) considered buying another cartridge for it and that cartridge was Video Pinball." - Jason Fitzpatrick
Our Atari 2600 is boxed and complete with both joysticks and paddles. We have a large number of game cartridges, both the popular and the more obscure ones. Many of our games are in their original packaging too.
We currently do not have our charges listed online, but we are happy to quote you by phone. Please call us on 01440 709794 and we'll be happy to help.
Minimum Order Charge
We do have a minimum order charge of £50 (excluding delivery) for all hires. This is to cover the time involved in organising and dispatching a single small item. Sorry :-(
New clients are required to pay in advance by BACS or credit card. Repeat customers can open a credit account with us on 30 days terms.
Multiple Items & Job Lots
If you're looking to fit out an entire set and need many items, we are happy to quote a discounted rate based on the quantity of items.
The term dry hire means to hire an item without having a technician supplied to support it. Most of our small items are available to dry hire, but some of the more complicated equipment that require specialist knowledge are not. In these cases we will deliver the item(s) personally and set them up for you. Please call us for a quotation based on the hire period and location.
