Were there ever any silver-label versions found or were they all the standard "Lab Loaner" carts?

Or, I guess a better question is, was Xevious ever re-issued with the silver label. Is this a picture of a bogus cart?

Of course not. 2 seconds and you know that label is not real.

 

No rounded corners.

Atari never made multi-color end labels like that.

It was never released or even finished.

I didn't purchase it. It just didn't look right.

Albert could do a much better job with that label!

Looks like someone just took the 7800 version and added color to it.  It's actually a close approximation to what the real 2600 version would have looked like if it had been released (although some things aren't right).  Still, no prototype is going to have a production label except in VERY rare circumstances: http://www.atariprot...boxandlabel.htm
