Retro computing and gaming chat looking at how the prototype for PONG sold for quite a pretty penny. We also mark the sad passing of the inventory of the GIF, Stephen Wilhite. We wonder if controllers covered in fur need much upkeep and take a look at the unreleased Commodore 64 Games Machine. All of this and our community question of the week.
