The Atari Flashback 3 cometh!

The Atari Flashback 3 is coming and the reason for it vanishing from online retailers' virtual shelves has become clear. Forget buying it for £19.95, the console has a UK RRP of £59.95 and an official release date scheduled for September 30th. The RRP is in line with the expected US retail price.

Retailers have already begun to list the Flashback 3 , with most saying it is currently out of stock. Zavvi continue to list the product but the price has now shot up to £34.95 and Argos expect to sell the console for around £40.

The Flashback 3 is coming with 60 games built-in, but without SD card support and will cost you a bit more this time around. At least this time it won't be vaporware.

No, that's not *the* Flashback 3 that's been talked about for ages, i.e. Legacy's. The name and brand was licensed out to an Asian firm by Atari.

Yes, to clarify, the Flashback 3 has nothing to do with the hard work and creative efforts of Legacy Engineering. (shame)
