The Atari 2600+ is nostalgic treat for video game fans, and now even the price has us feeling nostalgic because Amazon UK has knocked more than third off in an exclusive deal, reducing the Atari 2600+ from £99.99 to £65.80.

This throwback emulator retains its spot in our guide to the best retro gaming consoles as the top pick for Atari fans. In our Atari 2600+ review, we praised the impeccable authenticity of the console's design and Atari's gloriously analogue take on the mini console trend, adding the ability to play 7800 games too.
