Atari 2600 Light Sixer and 30 Classic Games

Originally released in October 1977, the 2600 was manufactured in Sunnyvale, California. The consoles manufactured here had thick internal RF shielding & thick plastic molding around the sides & bottom. These added weight to the console, and being that all 6 switches were on the front, these consoles were nicknamed "Heavy Sixers". After this first year, production moved to Hong Kong, and the consoles manufactured there had thinner RF shielding & plastic molding da da.. the the birth of the "Light Sixer".

Having hidden in a subterranean cave for several years a classic example of the light sixers has survived, and is presenting itself in this most excellent ebay lot.
