Hyperkin Retron77, Atari VCS Clone

The Atari 2600 VCS has been ignored as waves of clone-consoles came to market. There have been some long ago, but these were geographically released during the original reign of this famed console. More recently, NES clones seem very plentiful, with several options available that make use of modern features like HDMI output. Hyperkin's Retron77 is one of the first mainstream consoles to provide a cartridge slot for your existing collection of games and compatibility with modern TVs.

Hyperkin Retron77 Joysticks

Hyperkin Retron77 joysticks The Retron77 comes with one joystick and compatible ports for 2 players. This is a side-by-side comparison with an Atari joystick.
Hyperkin Retron77 joysticks Unlike most of my original Atari joysticks, the Hyperkin version is quite "stiff". That is to say, there is very little tilt from it's center point. If you are accustomed to the range of motion found in Atari sticks, you may be apt to put excessive pressure on the Hyperkin stick. I feel it is well made and not at all flimsy. It simply has a different feel from most others.
Hyperkin Retron77 joysticks The Retron77 joystick comes with a nice long cord giving you about 9 1/2 feet of wiggle room.
