Warlords is a great one. The problem I have anymore is finding 3 other players. I'm also worried the spinners are the crummy gen1 spinners they used from the wave1 asteroids.

I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I got my first Telstar for my birthday.

Everyone from school wanted to come over and play on it, sadly nobody placed any quarters on the tv..

The game's simplicity draws attention even today.

Is this actually bar/counter height so you can stand at it or is this another "too tiny for any adult to play on" situation?

Best buy lists it at just under 40", so not too bad.

Is the thing playing all arcade versions? I ask, because AFAIK, Circus Atari was only called that on the 2600. The actual arcade game was just called Circus.

They claim its arcade ROMS, so i'll go with that for now.

Well arcade pong is solid state electronics, it doesn't have roms so.....   Yeah they are using crappy ports of some of the games most likely.   This would be consistent with everything the company that now holds the Atari license has done over the past few years.

Nobody expects an FPGA simulation or such, and its pong, so how hard can it be.

Expectations are not that high for accuracy, and does anyone really care. No.

They'll still sell out.

Call me crazy but when a product is advertised as the arcade version of Pong, I expect the arcade version of Pong.   At least if I were a typical uneducated consumer.

I don't think the arcade version of pong, is the arcade version of pong, and i've played it.

Does it have the same analog distortion in the sound? Do the controls show the same variable tension
in the spinners on every machine. There was wide variation on all the pong atari versions, and numerous clones I ever played.

So, no, going by some Arcade 'standard' pong, was pretty much undoable, even when they were in the arcades.

You've always got an answer, even if it doesn't make any sense whatsoever.  Of course clone versions of pong aren't like the original.... because they are clones.   Re-creating the original arcade version of pong is quite easy as the original schematics are available and even better someone took the crusty old 1974 schematics, cleaned them up and converted them into 16 easy to read circuits.

Here you go.... pong:

http://atarihq.com/danb/files/PongSchematic.pdf

As they have the rights to the game they also have the rights to the circuit.... make this and you have pong.   Of course they didn't do that because they had to cram a bunch of other games in there which is fine, but then don't make pong teh advertised game when the real pong isn't even on it.
