It's a bank switch cart.  I don't think Atari had any bank switched versions of BASIC.  Maybe it's someone else's BASIC.  

 

wait, it's definitely Atari.  Maybe Microsoft BASIC?

Can someone tell me what, if anything I am missing here, $1500 for an Atari 800 and some stuff is too crazy for crazy. Unless . . .hmmm... maybe crazy HAS changed? The soft focus photos make me FEEL like it is 1979. Or is that feel like I am in a 70s porno? I always get that mixed up.

That picture looks like someone used an old 110 film camera with dirty lens.

 

But I think I know why it is worth $1500: free shipping.  :D

The people with no knowledge of what they're selling are always trying to trick some poor person into buying things they believe are old and rare. If I had a sucker who'd pay exorbitant prices for all this stuff, I'd be a millionaire by now. It's sad to see some people do get duped into buying stuff.

Search for "commodore 64 warcraft" and you will see lots of listing. There's one problem, World of Warcraft were never made for C64 yet eBay seems to be including Commodore 64 in many of Warcraft listing.

 

I think it started when some noob attached Commodore 64 to the item specific and many ignorant noobs used sell like this link which included inaccurate details with the game.

 

Maybe I should hop onto my little used backup account and buy up a bunch of Warcraft games, then open SNAD claim that games don't work on my Commodore 64 as claimed.  Commodore 64 never had CD-ROM support anyway

He's relisted it at only $750.  What a bargain.  It's actually a nice little collection for someone to get into the 800.  Hopefully he accepts reasonable offers.

For something missing the original box, it went for a lot.  I'm willing to bet there are a few troll bidders in the mix.

That's insane. I knew that was rare but that's just rediculous money to pay for an incomplete game. I saw another seller wanting 100K for a complete copy. I guess that rich <> smart.

On the bright side, the shipping was reasonable.  Not $20 or so like some sellers tended to gouge

Ya 4,000 is a lot for a game.  But look at this.  Talk about outrages.

Just means the box alone is worth $95,000

 

But $85 shipping from Canada to USA? Is the seller using a small cast iron safe to ship the game in? Or is Canada post office trying to get revenge for USPS jacking up price?

Ya but 99,999.99 in the first place.  85 is not so bad if the total was under 4,000 like only few hundred.  But who is willing to pay 99 thousand for a game.  I don't care how rare it is.
