Seems the 8-bit line was plagued with vaporware right from the start. Take a look at the part I've crudely drawn a circle around... CX4008, Super Bug. Since I'd never heard of this game, I went searching and came up with this interview with Joe DeCuir: http://www.digitpres...joe_decuir.html
It's well worth reading the whole interview, but here's the bit about Super Bug:
DP: You once mentioned that you had programmed a version of Atari's Super Bug coin-op for the 800, purely as a test concept. Do you recall why it was never released?
Joe Decuir: I didn't stick around to finish it. I started another company with two pals to work on modems and other communications products.
For those who don't know it (I didn't), Super Bug is an early Atari/Kee Games B&W arcade machine: http://www.system16....758&page=1#2950
Also of interest: CXL4005 is listed in the ad as "Life", but was actually released as "Video Easel" (though it does still play Conway's game of Life).
