    Default Telegames.com stops selling classic games

    I know a lot of you hate Telegames and their prices. Sure their prices were high, but I bought from them before the net was big. They were the only place I could find some stuff at for a long time. Now they have decided to stop selling classic games. I wonder where all of their stuff went to.

    It may have something to do with them licensing their original Colecovision titles to River West Brands for the inevitable upcoming Colecovision plug-and-play TV joystick. I notice they now have an "under construction" licensing section...

    I didnt mind that they had high prices on other stuff because if it was something that you wanted enough, then the price would be worth it. I just want them to release stuff that they have completed and that they are just sitting on (in this case due to the impending death of a system) and are "too afraid to enter into the market with games that might not sell". Also think that they stopped because maybe they really didnt sell nearly as much as they used to sell? I noticed that part of the "buying" portion of the site was hard to navigate.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    Freakin crap, I just found that site two days ago and was gonna order about 100 dollars worth of psx games (bust a groove, tales of destiny, bomberman party), and now they've stopped selling everything? Makes no sense.

    does anyone know if this includes telegames UK?

    this may be the reason I have seen telegames post quite a few colecovision games on ebay the past few months...

    wow, i kinda cant believe this still... man, im glad i picked up all the releases so far.... wow.

    makes me wonder if that other company will release them in cartridge form at all

    Well thank goodness I found out that GoAtari.com still sells all the Telegames releases for the Jag, so I just ordered Zero 5 from them, but it cost me $20 more than what Telegames was selling it for, and you know that Telegames wasn't selling it for cheap in the first place! So, $75 including shipping later, the game is finally gonna be on it's way to me. I sure hope that it's worth it! Anyhow, just a heads up, if you were planning to order any Jag games from Telegames, you can still find them at GoAtari, they just aren't any cheaper.

    Default TG

    Telegames stopped selling classic games? When did they start? I thought it was called EXTORTION for classic games.

    Seriously, I have bought a bit from the over the years, and wish I'd bought more when they had more in stock (nos TG16 games come to mind.)

    Where are the games going? Two words:
