  • Atari Flashback 2 vs. Intellivision Direct to TV

    First off, I am a huge fan of these nostalgic games, hell I grew up on them. I also think they would be great for my sons and I to play together, no violence or profanity yet challenging and fun.

    So does anyone out there have either of these yet? I am seriously considering asking for one for Christmas.

    I like the Intellivision Direct to TV but I have a question that the website doesnt seem to answer.
    If it only comes with one controller how can you play the 2 player sports games? Do I need to buy 2 of them? If so, how can 2 be hooked up at once when most TV's only have one place to plug in at? The intellivision sports games had no AI, so 2 people were required and I just dont see how that is possible with this product.

    Help, Christmas is right around the corner!

    I saw an original Intellivision in the original box at the Pasadena Rose Bowl flea market in August. I can't remember what the guy was asking for it. He also had an "Odessey" (sp?) for sale.

    I prefer a challenge and teamwork rather than a stat loading server without sound tactical ideals.
