Looking for a cool way to access your favorite 8-bit Atari games? Then you’ll want to take a closer look at the new Atari 400 Mini, which emulates all Atari 8-bit systems from the 400 through the 800XL. The home console released in late March and is on sale for $108 (was $120). Though the 10% discount isn’t enormous, it is the first deal on the Atari 400 Mini since release.

The Atari 400 Mini is more than just a modern revival of old Atari consoles. Along with access to a bunch of built-in games, you can plug in a USB drive to access 8-bit Atari ROMs you own and expand its library. You’ll also get four save state slots per game, making it easier than ever to explore these retro titles. The 400 Mini also has the ability to rewind gameplay, offers an optional CRT filter, and supports 720hp output.

Along with the console, you’ll get the CXStick, a modernized version of the iconic Atari CX40 joystick.

Here’s a look at all the preinstalled Costumes on the Atari 400 Mini:

Beyond the new Atari 400 Mini, there are plenty of other Atari consoles to consider. This includes the Atari 2600+ that launched last year and plays original cartridges. It costs $130, but it’s a great option if you still have a bunch of your old Atari games lurking in the basement or stashed away in a closet–or if you want to buy some new games, including the wonderful Mr. Run and Jump. A cheaper alternative is the My Arcade Atari Game Station Pro, which is on sale for $60 (down from $100) and is loaded with over 200 Atari games and comes with two joysticks.

If you want to bring your games on the road, the budget-friendly Atari Pocket Player Pro is worth a closer look. Along with a decidedly retro design, the $40 handheld comes with 100 games, including Asteroids, Centipedian Tempest, and Breakout. And for something a bit off the beaten path, you’ll find the Tiny Arcade Atari 2600, which is a tiny desktop arcade game that features a 1.5-inch retro monitor and 10 games.
