Hey everyone, over the past month, I have been adding in loads of variations to both the Atari 2600 and NES databases. So far, there have been a handful of people who are aware of these variations and have added them to their collections. I'd like to go ahead and make everyone aware of these variations so that it will make it easier for everyone to update their collections. Here is a list of variation titles to look out for:

Atari 2600
Numbered
Text Label
Picture Label
Rerelease
"Use With Paddle Controllers" Error

NES
5 Screw
3 Screw
3 Screw w/Round Seal
3 Screw w/Oval Seal
Round Seal
Oval Seal

If anyone has any questions regarding these variations, please don't hesitate to PM me. Thanks! Smiley

Hoping on the bandwagon here...

Anyway, my name is Ben and I am a proud staff member on one of the best video game sites on the Web. My job on the staff is as Hardware Contributor, although I spend as much time on the games database as I do the hardware database. My main specialties are pre-SNES systems and Japanese systems. I am specifically interested in the Atari 7800, NES/Famicom, Sega Master System and the TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine. I joined the site on August 20, 2004, and became a staff member on July 7, 2007. In between that time I was essentially inactive on the site, but then I noticed how incomplete the database was and I decided to something about it. Not long afterwards, I applied for a position on the staff and got my current position as Hardware Contributor.

I am currently a college student in my second year and I plan to major in history. I'm currently trying to wrap my GE (general education) courses before I begin working on my major, and afterwards I might transfer to SJSU to get my BS. I am currently unemployed, and I haven't had luck finding a job yet. Aside from playing video games and going to college, I am a huge music fan and I also enjoy the occasional anime.

I've been collecting for about as long as I can remember, starting back when I was about 7 years old. During that time, I discovered the wonders of Funcoland and started collecting for the NES and Game Boy. A few years later, I began collecting for the Sega Master System and Genesis, and by 2003 I was into the Atari 2600. Just recently I've been into collecting for import systems, mainly the Famicom, Sega Mark III and PC Engine.

Learn more about me, after the jump if you want...
