AtGames rolls out the Atari Flashback X for the holidays and it links to the Legends Ultimate arcade cabinet

AtGames - Atari Flashback X
This season's variation on the Atari Flashback has 110 built-in games and wired controllers.
It's been a while since I've bought an Atari Flashback. I tried out the Pong Blast HDMI dongle from last season, but the Atari Flashbacks kind of lost their luster for me. Each year it's the same 100 games with a few switch-ups. Sure, they improved the wireless joysticks and added an SD card slot, but their quality has been in question for so long, I just stopped.

I'm not seeing any specs on this model mentioning an SD slot. Makes me think that was a short-lived addition of Flashbacks past. The manual mentions compatibility with original Atari Paddle Controllers for some of the 4-player games. Sam's Club has a model that includes 10 additional games, but the list includes games on the primary game list. I'm not sure what the additional titles are.

This year's mini console has a new cosmetic design, 720P output, wired joysticks, and connectivity with the Legends Ultimate Arcade cabinet (allowing use of the controls and monitor). Upon looking at the game list, I spotted H.E.R.O. and Fatal Run which is pretty cool. I'm on the fence as to whether or not I really need another one of these minis.
