I think the concern was that if piracy pushes the effective price of Arcadia tapes down to $5 or so, that would make it very hard for other companies to compete for as long as Arcadia remains in the market.
In the end though, piracy is usually responsible for raising
the prices so that the company effected can try and recoup its losses. Prices usually only come down either when the software goes on clearance or when the company's product isn't selling and they want to entice new buyers with lower prices. None of this seems to concern Imagic.

i downloaded the videos with vixy.net, but then when i tryed to play them in windows media player, it says that one or more codecs are needed to play this file....what do i do?
As was posted, you need the proper CODEC to view. Download and install DiVX and you should be good to go. (Don't bother making the DiVX player your default movie player, it's not particularly good)

Thanks for posting the links! I hope there are many more videos like this out there like this!
Me, too. I came across this only only because it was releated to my generic "atari" search on YouTube, and it was buried pretty deep in the results. I haven't finished my search (left off at page 23 with lots more to go) so who knows what's left to discover.
This is the first business show profile of a game company I've come across from back in the day, though. The only other things I have of that nature are some arcade snippets from the UK version of "I Love the 80s," the Jaguar infomercial, and a few dealer promo vids and internal corporate vids which aren't nearly as interesting. Oh, and the "Once Upon Atari" DVD, which is cool but not quite the same thing -- that's all anecdotal recollections.
Now, I'd love
to find one like this on Atari or Activision. That would be sweet
