With the Atari 2600 gaining a definitive space in my rack, the problem of the cable lenght arose joystick CX40, that is not long enough to get to the couch. As I have already mentioned in a previous article, the Atari 2600 must have been designed to sit on a coffee table, close to the user, to facilitate access to the switches staying on the console: SELECT, START, etc. I say this because the joystick cables are short while the cables from the power source and RF tend to be huge.
But in my room there is no place for a coffee table, so I end up having to choose between sitting on the floor or put the console on the floor to be able to play while sitting on the couch. Now this problem is solved thanks to Two Extenders Cables 1.8m for Atari Joystick 2600 (TWO NEW 6 Foot Extension Cables for ATARI 2600 Controller Joystick NEW 6FT), not acquired eBay, from the seller Video Games Source.
The stents mark has no apparent, comes only in a plastic bag with a label written “Made in China”, but worked perfectly and keep their promises. Now I have plenty of cable in the joysticks Atari 2600.
The package was sent by the modality USPS First Class Mail Intl / First Class Package Service Intl and came only 14 calendar days. This year is somewhat atypical, packages delayed horrors in the middle of the year, passing some of 90 calendar days, and still had 3 China lost packages. Now, in Christmas season, where typically the deadlines increase, that year oddly deadlines were smaller.
