In fact, they have the perfect streaming console solution that runs games great for those with dial-up internet access! The 8GB of storage is plenty of space to hold the entire game library of the 2600, 5200, and 7800 systems combined! Cloud saves are a standard feature as well so your progress in E.T. will not be lost!

There are three affordable subscription plans available and the same stylish console can be used for any or all of the plans:

  • For $26.00 a year you get access to all 565 of the 2600 series games.

Pricing and availability for Snift has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission.
