An updated version of the comparison video has been posted for Burger Time, so I'm posting the new video here.  :)

Always liked Burger Time though I never saw it in the arcade despite being old enough to have seen arcade games from the start - maybe it didn't make it across the Irish Sea for some reason. I first played it via MAME and I've also played the NES version which is very good.

Have heard good things about Beef Drop and have been tempted to try it - pity the music sounds a bit off which the poor old 7800 does suffer from.Such a pity that the POKEY chip wasn't built into the console. I'm assuming this isn't the POKEY version in the video?

That's right.  He used Beef Drop VE for the 7800 (which does not have POKEY) instead of the other version.  On a good note, if you own the VE version and get an XM unit, the game will play with POKEY sound as the chip will be detected. :)

He missed out the Atari XE version of Beef Drop from this video too.

Can't say i have ever played this game..

For real?  You need to give it a spin!
Make sure to give the Intellivision version a chance; it really showcases the capabilities of that system.  It is truly a classic!

cool. However I'm not sure I like the idea of the XM - all it does is split the homebrew 7800 market into haves and have-nots. It isn't really a 7800 any more due to all the stuff it adds on..

Disappointed that the Circus remake has no sound if played without the XM - a great pity.

You can get Beef Drop and Circus carts with POKEY chips in them though, I have one!

The whole point of the XM is adding the POKEY and RAM which up until now people have had to add to carts themselves. This has made games more expensive and POKEY chips and the right RAM chips are getting scarce now. So the XM isn't really doing anything that 7800 games were not already doing, Atari did plan to actually make an XM back in the day anyway, this XM mostly follows the original plan.
