The 80s Weekly - Issue 50
New Atari Gamestation Pro Console, Remembering the Plymouth Duster Ad from the first MTV VMAs, Valuable '80s Board Games, and a Tiny Toy Giveaway.
The 80s Weekly is your source for the nostalgic news, headlines, and giveaways related to 1980s pop culture.
Editor’s Note: 50th Issue! WOW! Thanks everyone for the support and feedback over the past year. I look forward to bringing the next 50 issues and long live the 80s!!!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my Atari 2600, but this new Gamestion Pro Console might be the best Atari platform ever made (and it’s not even made by Atari!) My Arcade has teamed up with Atari to integrate Atari 2600, 5200, 7800, and Arcade games into a single platform. It has wireless controllers and a full HD display for modern TVs. Look for it at the end of October. And the price tag isn’t bad at $100.
The Giveaway for Issue 50 features tiny versions of the toys we remember from the 80s! One lucky winner will receive a Lite Brite Mini, the World’s Smallest Etch-A-Sketch, and the Rubik’s Edge (much easier to solve than the original!) Click the button below to get your entries and GOOD LUCK!
