I am from NA and don't know too much about Atari but I just found this at my local Goodwill and couldn't find much on Google except 1 cart that has a similar label. Is it a prototype or something of that nature?

Thanks

Probably a promo, if it isn't, I'd love to see the circuit board. As it should have bankswitching logic, an EPROM and a standalone DPC, which I have never seen. :lust:

How much does it weigh? :)

61 grams and it appears to be missing a piece beside the connector so that should be a gram or two.

5 or 6 grams more than the handful of other carts I have here.

Bummer, just pulled a production cart and it weighs 63 grams. :( Shoot Wonder007 a PM, to see if he owns this yet or not. ;)

Yeah, and tell him you are putting it up for a 5 day auction in the marketplace forum ;)

Oh well still an interesting item for my collection. Thanks for the information.

Just for fun did you have any idea it's approximate value? like $25-$50?

My guess would be more like ~$100. If you are willing to sell it for that little (like $25-$50?), I'd buy it and crack it open. :D

Thanks for the honest answer. I never really had any intention to sell it unless it was worth an insane amount of money.

Is there anyway to open a cart without destroying it or needing special tools?

I think CPUWIZ is pretty dead on for the value. I would give you $100 for it. I have a few other Activision protos that it would look good next to.

Funny...... :) And then extend it one more day after the supposed ending. :roll:

I played it a little more today and seems to be pretty true to the final as far as I can tell from Youtube videos but I did notice one thing. Probably just a glitch or something stupid but what the heck is this?

Seems like a garbled up Ronda.

Seems like a garbled up Rhonda or Quickclaw, though there's no rock on the left.

Strange.

What happens if you walk into it?

It is intermittently there so nothing happens if you walk through it. Just thought it was strange I couldn't find it in anyone else's game footage. I guess I am over analyzing things lol.

Try the wikipedia page for Activision unreleased. By the way all the activision protos I've seen were pink carts like this one
