I have never heard about that console, any info you could share? I always thought that the Astron Belt LD you pictured was the arcade one. I have not played it but I heard it was fun.

It's not like I'm not open to other consoles, I'm just really into NES right now, and it'll probably stay that way for at least a year or two.
