Atari Dreams

My grandmother never threw catalogs out, she let them sit until the new one came in.

So I can remember spending the better part of a year staring at this image, plotting as to how I would make the Atari 2600 mine.

I had to get my first job but it was so worth it and it changed Christmas forever.

I still feel like there's an RGB sunburst emanating from me when I think about playing my 2600.

My dad and I used to play the "Combat" cartridge non-stop. I even recognize the Ricochet-Fire Maze Tank game on the screen. But in all the years of playing, we never got the 2600 to create the RGB sunburst shown. Was it a special easter-egg? :D

Anybody else notice the guy isn't even holding the joystick and the elegant lady beside him is holding her joystick sideways, without her fingers even near the fire button?
