Atari Flashback 7 Classic Game Console with 2 Controllers

So try to find a wired Flashback console. Or buy this wireless one and connect wired controllers to it. All versions of the Flashback have wired controller ports.
I had the Flashback 5 with two wired controllers and it worked great, pretty much like an original Atari 2600 from back in the day. Sure the Flashback 6 and 7 add a few more games, but otherwise they are the same as the other Flashback versions that have come out over the last few years. I'd rather have a few less games and good controllers!
A game console that plays dozens of old time video games and somewhat replicates the look and feel of the original Atari 2600 game machine.
–A pleasant, nostalgic trip down Atari memory lane
–Has many of the all time greats: Asteroids, Space Invaders, Centipede, Frogger, Missile Command
–Console is more compact than original and uses buttons instead of levers.
–Two Wireless joysticks, one with Start and Select buttons for convenient play
–Documentation too scant: hard to figure out how to play some games
–Joystick control is coarse: hard to control in games like Pong
–The video seems to me to be even cruder than the original Atari 2600
–Can’t update or add games. There isn’t a socket for original game cartridges.
–Easy for fingers to block IR emitter on joystick, causing loss of control
Some Things You Should Know
–The console’s output is composite video, that is, the console has a hard wired yellow video plug and white audio plug. Computer monitors don’t usually have these inputs, but most TVs still do.
–There are sockets on the console to handle wired joysticks and paddles, so you can use original Atari or Commodore controllers if you have them. (I tried an original Atari joystick, and its response was no better than the wireless sticks included.)
–I couldn’t get some games, like Blackjack, to work. I looked on Wikipedia to find that this game was originally a paddle game. That may be the problem since I didn’t have a paddle. This may also explain the problem with Pong.
–I tried to use an original Atari trackball, and it didn’t work, except for the fire button. The trackball has joystick and trackball settings: neither setting worked.
That’s it. A few great games to bring back the olden times, but nothing astonishing. If you can play Centipede and Asteroids for hours on end, this is for you.
I have no idea how this has 4 stars. Bots or something.
I don't know if they have an option but do not order without wired controllers!
