2600 in the Palm of your Hands

Author: John Pio  //  Category: News

With a name like “Mario the Modder” you would expect “Mario” to hack and modify Nintendo systems exclusively, but oh no, “Mario” goes super old school and has created one of the most portable Atari 2600 mods to date. Well its not really an Atari 2600 but the Atari Flashback 2, Legacy Engineering’s 2005 commissioned remake of the classic system.


Well “Mario” took a hack saw to it and threw in a little solder and tada! He has created a very portable Atari 2600 he calls Stella, after the original code name for the 2600. Just take a look at his video and photos.

    Pretty sweet. Anyone know if he makes portable Intellivision units?

  2. John Pio Says:

    You’d have to mod an Intellivision 10 or 25 system like he did to the Atari Flashback 2. It had a teeny board.

    Man…no clue how to do that but I could totally go for some portable Night Stalker whenever I need to kill a few minutes. Does he sell the units or is it “One of a kind”?
