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.

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

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.

Nobody is.  Or at least in most cases that's true.  The outrage expressed here should be towards the sellers.  They are just fishing for idiots.

Anyone know what the board is?  It's certainly not BASIC.  I got nothing when I googled the ROM, C030578

That's an XE game board. It's Necromaner I think.

I've come to the realization that I will never own the truly rare of rare games now in this day and age. With the ease of printing labels and burning your own carts, I wouldn't trust anything put out there. If some chance I can ever find stuff in the wild, that would be my only hope of finding anything, or I get it from a very, very reputable collector.

So true. It saddens me to think that someday very soon those crappy knock-offs, repro's, and home made POS's will pass off as real. And don't get me started on VGA ratings, labeling a disk box set as a cartridge, etc. You'd have no idea what was actually in there packages since they have no idea what it is to begin with :)

http://www.ebay.com/...-/262254338642?

The only thing is that the most expensive item in that collection is the Chalkboard cart and that's maybe $100-120 on a good day now. I saw the board and asked the seller if he had any carts and they then realized the had one.

Total, I'd say best $230-250.

Want to buy a picture of someone else playing Atari?

 

Well now you can: http://www.ebay.ca/i...016.m2518.l4276

 

(I wonder what the legality is here. What happens if those two guys happen to stumble upon this auction, assuming this picture was found at a Garage Sale etc)

Seller is in Sunnyvale. Wonder if the lost Airworld proto is in there somewhere?  Please tell me a respectable Atari user got this and intents to dump all proto and other in-progress projects for us to enjoy!!

Looks like shit hack job. Someone wired the individual buttons from NES controller into a Genesis controller and are relying on Genesis controller's IC to do the signal encoding.  I could probably do a proper hack job as 74157 is easy to get. A little wiring and I don't need an in-line controller to be an interpreter.  And a lot cheaper than what he is charging for.  Looking on eBay, cheap NES controller clone is under $3 each and 74157 can be bought from online sources like Mouser for under 50 cents each.  Add in about $8 for a 9 pin extension cable and you could have a nice looking NES controller for Genesis for under $15 total plus wiring and soldering time.

 

The seller clown must think the labor is worth $60 and is hoping to fish up a few suckers with money to burn.

Here is your chance to win a possible super rare snes game.  Oh yeah he is a member here who "doesn't" have any clue what these games are worth and is not trying to deceive anybody at all.

 

I'm not hiding buddy, I call it as I see it!
