A 6800!!! At least we upgraded to a MOSTEK 6502
I upgraded to 6809 and then 68000........Why?

I am sitting inside a Motorola plant as I type this. It is the same place I was working when Pong came out, and when the 6800 came out.......how time flies.

We have that and several dozen other games. For children of the 60s / 70s this is a comfortable game console. I never mastered the PS2 - too much time and effort required to master all of its complexity. I love my tablet, smartphone, and myriad PCs running linux and windows, but modern game consoles are another matter..

Indeed they do, I think the biggest problem for me is hand/eye coordination and lack of interest. It took me less than 15 minutes to figure out most of my new phone which is also my first smart phone.. (Samsung Galaxy S III - what a great phone.. )

"Spin the bottle" was my fave game. I have reconnected with one of the participants via FB. You guys go for the metaphysical thrill, we went for the unadulterated endorphin releasing versions.

Inappropriate for children and yes, the game play looks exactly like that.

twitch.tv distributes many game play streams, it's as far pong as you can get without suiting up.Technically remarkable.

wow, technically advanced for sure!

i wish that they could have more games like mario and pacman, megaman etc.
stuff like that game has its place just like a scary movie, but man i see more of that type than the others. my 6yearold barely can play games anymore.

dont get me wrong.... i love a good gore fest everynow and then.
