Almost three years ago, Ed Fries—a Microsoft executive instrumental in acquiring Bungie and making Halo the definitive Xbox series—created Halo 2600, a flash game demake that imagined the game on an old Atari VCS. Now, is putting the game's ROM on a proper cartridge, with period box and label art and an instruction manual.

The cart already had a limited run back in 2010, for the Classic Gaming Expo that year. This release will have a new label to differentiate the releases. There's a limit of two cartridges per buyer, and they are available in NTSC and PAL formats.

If you wish to play the game, you may do so here. It's essentially a mash-up of Adventure and Berzerk, but the bleep-bloop-boop interpretation of the Halo anthem is outstanding.
