Gold Plated Atari 2600 Game Deck

gold plated atari 2600 game console

It all started with the Atari 2600 and the competitors.  They turned the gaming world on their head and changed entertainment forever. The Atari 2600 was the gold standard of the day and now someone has stepped up and given it a due reward making a Gold Plated Atari 2600.

The game deck looks incredible with every piece of one of history’s coolest gadgets glistening in the light.  Every piece of the Atari 2600 has been encased in gold bringing up the question of whether it would still work or not.  Most likely the controller would be a bit unwieldy coated in gold, but who really cares.

One big mystery is what game is hidden in the golden cartridge?  Is it one of the Atari 2600 classics or just an empty case?  The only people who probably know the answer to the mystery are Urchin Associates the creator of this unique tribute to the Atari 2600.

Do not expect to find this item for sale.  It is a one of kind tribute to the history of gaming.
