No!!!!!! ;-)

I admit it'd be a cool challenge from a programmers sight to do it on the VCS, but the Battleship gameplay is sooooo dead boring... :-)

Though at the same time, if someone rigged a controller port for output (sorta like Zero Tolerence for the Genesis, which I think I've heard is theorhetically possible on the list, Battleship might be a really good test case. Two tubes, two 2600s, and one screen per setup.

At the very least it'd be an impressive first.
