The Atari 2600 Pause Kit

atari 2600 pause kit

Have you ever wanted to pause your Atari 2600 to take a phone call or make a sandwich, but when you reached down to hit the pause switch you realized, “the atari never had a pause button!” Well for a mere 20 bucks and a little time behind the soldering iron, you can mod you Atari 2600 to gain the very modern ability to pause. The kit is being sold at the Atari Age store and includes:

  • Populated Atari 2600 Pause Kit circuit board
  • Red, Black, Blue, Green and Orange (x2) wires
  • Heat shrink tubing
  • Toggle switch
  • Double-sided tape

A great way to bring a bit of modern to something retro, so drop by the Atari Age store and order yours before they are gone.
