Atari 5200 - CBS Electronics - Standard Label Variation


CBS Electronics - Standard Label Variation
CBS Games for the Atari 5200 are rather unique in their appearance for two reasons. First, their cartridges are made from a light-brown plastic instead of your typical black and second they have a tapered grip at the end to allow easier removal. The labels for CBS games are black with the name of the game printed, not once, but twice in yellow (don't ask us why!). Copyright information is displayed below the name, printed in white. The end of the cartridge contains the CBS Electronics logo (bright orange with white text) instead of the game's name, making it impossible to tell stacked CBS carts apart without looking at the main label. Of CBS' five titles for the 5200, four came with overlays but for some reason there's no place to store them with the cart (which probably makes these overlays harder to find!)
