No, that would be ridiculous.

The Atari Flashback console plugs into a domestic TV and has many Atari Classic games built in.

Avoid Flashback 1, which is terrible. Flashback 2 is based on the original 2600 hardware, so the games are completely authentic. It can also be modded to accept genuine classic cartridges. flashback 3 uses an emulator, so the games are highly authentic, but it can't make use of the cartridge port mod.

Flashback 1 uses re-written versions of the games so they run on the popular NES-on-a-chip IC and the games play ok, but the graphics and audio lack the original 2600 magic.
