Old-school gamers looking to show up all those fancy kids with their PSPs and DS Lites (or even our own Ben Heck) are about to get another weapon in their arsenal: Curt Vendel, the designer of the Atari Flashback Portable, posted a couple pics of the unit to the AtariAge forums, and it's looking pretty slick. In addition to aping the ridged lines of the 2600, the Portable runs off three AA batteries, loads in games from a mini-USB connector (although how those games will be distributed is still up in the air) and features a 320 x 240 screen with AV out. No word on pricing or availability, but after the constant claims that this thing was vapor, it's good to at least see it in the flesh. Fleshy plastic, anyway.
