So by wearing the 8-bit tie you’ll be the envy of the office or, at least, you’ll get tons of attention. You’ll be just like Mario when he wore a tie to meetings when negotiating his contact with Nintendo, if he ever had to. Sure the Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 are out there with all their super technology, but sometimes it’s nice to remember the beginnings of the video game revolution. Viva la 8-bit!

In the olden days of gaming, when quarters were a hot commodity and color graphics were the newest innovation, one name stood out as king: Atari. The games were visually simple, but still retain their hold as some of the most challenging and fun games ever created. Sadly, it’s just too difficult to carry around an Atari system and a bag of cartridges and controllers (both joystick and paddle) with you wherever you go. So, we’ve found a pocket sized solution.
Each keychain has a secret – they contain real games. Plug in the included 6 foot cable (on a battery powered reel) into the keychain and your TV , and you really can enjoy the games of yesteryear. Yes, you read that right: these keychains contain real Atari games, and are fully playable!
Here’s how the games break down:
* Joystick 1 – Asteroids and Millipede
* Joystick 2 – Centipede and Yar’s Revenge
* Paddle – Pong, Breakout, and Warlords
Each keychain comes with a separate pocket size reel that holds six feet of cord and RCA jacks (included). Powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included). Single player only.
The price of the Atari 2600 Keychains is $14.99
