Can someone ask him why post-crash Activision didn't use the DPC in his/their later 2600 releases?

I suspect that the DPC would have been a significant cost increase for a game.  I suspect it would have been reserved for premier releases as it was for Pitfall II.  Once the crash occurred, I doubt that Activision would want to risk releasing an expensive title.

 

If I remember correctly, David Crane was working on an even better DPC just prior to the crash.

These look great. I hope Gold Rush gets released before my son grows out of his mid-toddlerhood train obsession. (Discussed in this thread... http://atariage.com/...me-suggestions)

It's perfect for him/us. Highly looking forward to the release.
