Did anyone here get the Atari 2600 VCS game Adventure the month it was released? Was that month December of 1979? If it really was released in December of 1979, someone around here must have a photo or at least a fuzzy Christmas memory.
An article at gamasutra says that Adventure was released in December of 1979, but A History of … Games claims it wasn't released until February of 1980. In a Halcyon Days interview, Warren Robinett said that he finished Adventure in June of 1979, so a December release doesn't sound unreasonable.
In 2009, eegad said in another thread that he got an Atari 2600 on July 1st of 1980 and Adventure wasn't released yet. That's pretty darn deep into 1980.
This commercial aired on December 2, 1979:
Does anyone see an Adventure box in the pile or flying by at the end?
