The legendary first and most beautiful of the Amigas, the Amiga 1000, remains one of the most elegant and ground-breaking computers ever designed and, intriguingly, one of the rarest of the Commodore family.

Seller ships worldwide.

Ed Fries has done the rather unthinkable and ported FPS mega-hit HALO to the Atari 2600. Of course, it's not a FPS anymore and things look decidedly blockier, but you still get to control the horrendously named Master Chief in a large exploration game filled with a ton of enemies to shoot and keys to collect. What's more, the game, Halo 2600, has been released in proper, physical cartridge form (complete with box and everything) by AtariAge and you can grab your copy here. It will set you back $50 and you can only order up to two copies.
