In 1986, a new version of the Atari 2600 was released, unofficially referred to as the 2600 Jr. With its introduction came a resurgence in software development both from Atari and from third parties. Indeed so popular is the system that 21 years on, homebrew games for the system are still being made and sold by hobbyists with several new titles available each year. How could you overlook a massive 128 bytes of Ram.

One of the first interactive fiction computer games and an early descendant of Colossal Cave Adventure. Written in 1977–1979, "Zork" was originally MIT hacker jargon for an unfinished program. The implementors named the completed game Dungeon, but by that time the name Zork had already stuck. Three of the original Zork programmers joined with others to found Infocom in 1979.
Zork distinguished itself in its genre as an especially rich game in terms of both the quality of the storytelling and the sophistication of its text parser, which understood full sentences, not just single verbs or nouns.
And now the miraculous has happened, yes you guessed theres a near mint copy on ebay

Amstrad GX4000, essentially an Amstrad CPC 6128 plus without a keyboard and disk drive, was a commercial flop with only a handful of original games released for it, but also a highly sought after 8-bit game console. So, after reading a bit on Amstrad's history, you'll be happy to know that a mint condition Amstrad GX4000 complete with two controllers and Burning Rubber cartridge has just hit ebay.co.uk. Surprisingly it's one of the few consoles that ship worldwide and one of the fewer Amstrad GX4000 under 30£ (for now, at least).

If it weren't for the hideous conspiracy of baked bean sellers the 32-bit home computing beast that was the Amiga 1200 would have been as huge a success as her older Amiga 500 sister. The Amiga 1200 had a brand new powerful graphics chip, a 32-bit 68020 processor, a better OS and a smart price tag, but apparently never sold good enough to save Commodore. Despite the brilliant new games and being backward compatible in a way the PS3 will never be.
Now, provided you live in the UK, you can get a boxed Amiga 1200 with 11 fantastic boxed games including: Frontier Elite II, Power Monger, Mortal Kombat and Theme Park. Have a look at this (probable) bargain:

Dreamcast DIVERS 2000 CX-1
21. april 2000
NO. OF PLAYERS
Fuji Television Divers 2000 Series CX-1 - an impressive title, and an even more impressive piece of Sega hardware.This very special version of the Dreamcast came with everything a serious user could ever want. A remote (for the tv-function), a controller, keyboard, Vibration Pack, internet and teleconference software, a headset and an instruction video. And even though the built-in screen is fairly small, it is of exceptional quality.The unit is designed to be used every day, and even the antenna doubles as a place to hang the headset when it is not in use. Down the sides are two rows of LEDs, that light up when the unit is in use - a feature that definitely does not make the overall appeal any less.Games are loaded from the top, just like your regular Dreamcast. Unfortunately neither a slot or tray loading drive made it to production, even-though it would have went well with the "Sonic head/iMac" look.The DIVERS 2000 was released in the midst of the short Dreamcast life-span, and is considered as Sega's last contribution to Dreamcast collectors the world over.

The Atari Jaguar, released in November 1993, eventually wound up as a commercial failure and prompted Atari to leave the hardware business. After the Atari Corporation properties were bought out by Hasbro Interactive in the late 1990s, Hasbro released the encryption coding to the Jaguar, finally opening the doors for homebrew development.
Several game companies, including Telegames, ScatoLOGIC, and Songbird Productions, have not only released previously unfinished materials from the Jaguar's past, but also several brand new titles to satisfy the system's cult following.
Auction item includes games Blue Lightning, Hover Strike, Dragon's Lair, Myst, Vid Grid and Primal Rage. Seller in US, ships worlwide.

Dark Tower is a 1981 electronic board game by Milton Bradley Company, for one to four players. The object of the game is to amass an army, collect the three keys to the Tower, and defeat the evil within.
Working copies of Dark Tower are increasingly hard to find. The game went out of print shortly after release due to a lawsuit. The suit was brought by two men who claimed to have presented the original concept for "Dark Tower" to Milton Bradley in the late Seventies. Thereafter, they claimed, MB independently developed the game based on their proposal. As part of the resolution of the lawsuit, Milton Bradley pulled the game off the market.

As promised, here's a Retro Treasures post about GoldenEye 007, the best FPS for the Nintendo 64 and the first console shooter that actually worked, since it wisely introduced the analog stick to the mechanics. The game, still highly playable and definitely not a rarity, is widely available and shouldn't be difficult to track down. The following ebay auction is the cheapest I could find and one of the few that are targeting a worldwide audience.

Reputed by many to be nearly unplayable, Cheetahmen II was a video game produced by Active Enterprises in 1992, but strangely the game was never sold commercially. All 1,500 known copies of the game were located in a warehouse in 1997. All were reused Action 52 cartridges with some having a small gold sticker reading "Cheetamen II." The cartridge as you would imagine, is very hard to come by, though ROM images of the game exist on the Internet.

The Nintendo Virtual Boy, a console designed by legendary Gunpei Yokoi, was Nintendo's first and apparently only attempt at a Virtual Reality console, that completely and utterly flopped. The console, released in 1995 in Japan and the US, didn't even make it to Europe, despite being a pretty quirky and interesting little gadget.
Here's what Nintendo had to say on its VR gaming machine:
"The Virtual Boy, our RISC-based, 32-bit system, produces a 3-D experience not possible on conventional television or LCD screens. The system has two high-resolution, mirror-scanning LED (light emitting diode) displays. Its unique design eliminates all external stimuli, totally immersing players into their own private universe with high-resolution red images against a deep black background. The 3-D experience is enhanced through stereo sound and a new specially-designed, double-grip controller that accommodates multidirectional spatial movement. Virtual Boy is a stand-alone, table-top unit that doesn't connect to a television screen. It is powered by six AA batteries."Good news is Europeans can now get their hands on a Virtual Boy and 4 games (Wario Land, Mario Tennis, Galactic Pinball and Red Alarm) for relatively cheap. Provided its price stays below 50£, as usually VBs sell for over 70£.

Well, here's another brilliant auction only available to them lucky UK residents. This one's special though. It's about the machine that familiarized me with words such as RISC and processor. It's about the extremely powerful (back then at least) Acorn Archimeded A3010, complete with Risc OS, PC emulation, the (unforgettable, that's what you are) DR-DOS 6.0 OS, a Lotus driving game, Crystal Maze and a rather quirky little disk collection. Know, that should this go for less than 30£, you'll be missing a huge bargain.

If you are into cyberpunk console RPGs then you just can't do much better than Shadowrun SNES (MobyGames entry). Shadowrun, set in a brilliant Neuromancer inspired gameworld, seamlessly combines tabletop RPG rules with bursts of arcade action and crisp 16-bit visuals to create one of the best non-Japanese CRPGs ever to appear on a Nintendo console. Happily Amazon.com has a stock of these beauties. Not very happily they only ship them within the US.

Snatcher for the Sega Mega CD, a game designed by industry legend Hideo Kojima, was the absolutely best thing to ever appear on Sega's not particularly successful console add-on.

The ColecoVision is a second generation home video game console, released in August 1982. The ColecoVision offered arcade-quality graphics and gaming style, the ability to play other home consoles' video games (notably the Atari 2600), and the means to expand the system's hardware. All told, approximately 170 titles were released in the form of plug-in cartridges between 1982 and 1985. And now the Console and a selection of 6 games have come under the hammer on ebay, unfortunately the Seller ships to the US only

A short post about an amazing (UK only, unfortunately) auction. About a Commodore 64, 50 tapes with games, a joystick, tv-lead, power pack but no tape player to be precise. Also an auction with a £0.99 starting bid.
