Whilst in Tokyo I did managed to find a boxed and complete (if not in brilliant condition) Atari 2800, it's basically a Sears Telegames II unit with the paddle and controller being part of one unit (just think of what you could have done...). It is a machine that Atari collectors do like as it is quite rare.

It was at the bargain price of Y14800 (about 80 quid), now if only I had the room for it...

I would have grabbed it ;)

Even so, yes you could have sold it back here for double I reckon...

You found any 2800 games for it though? I'll have those off ya if you did now :)

Even found a couple of Commodore Maxs for between 7,800 and 12,800 Yen (complete with Omega Race). If only I had the space.

Pity... complete and in nice condition, you could probably get ?200 for MAXs on eBay. Omega Race is also one of the harder MAX titles to find... certainly it was one of the last I got.
