Yea but this new system is also running versions of
7800 games as well as 2600 ones.

I guess we probably won't know for sure what it is
until it comes out and someone is able to take it
apart and analyze it.  I hope it's real 7800/2600
compatible hardware inside, similiar to those
Famicons-in-a-controller, but I'm not getting my hopes
