It took under 5 minutes per game. Unfortunately the game selection wasn't all that great and the lineup neve really increased. It came out during the tail end of the 2600's lifespan and didn't last very long. They would send you pages to put into a binder that had info for each game and how to play it. There was a numeric keypad on the screen where you would enter your PIN number (so that parents could limit the number of games you could download) and then you would enter the number for the game and it would make a dial-up connection and download the game. I'm not sure how fast the modem was, but given the era it came out, it was probably 300 or 1200 baud.Originally Posted by Gamejunkie
I did a quick look at eBay and it looks like the Atari 2600 version of Mario Bros. is going for just under a dollar, and that's including the manual. It wasn't very rare.i think... I had mario bros for 2600 man I wish I still had it I bought it for 50 cents at a flea market. Now i could've probably sold it for 10 times that!
