The first Bally Home Library Computer Arcade finally shipped and arrived in people's hands in late January 1978. Many of these people who got their units had ordered their system from a three-page JS&A ad that appeared in the September 1977 issue of Scientific American. Happy birthday, Astrocade! The Bally is now 40 years old and we're still fiddling around with it. Good for us! If anyone has any stories to tell about the Astrocade (especially if you got your system in 1978 or for your birthday!), then I'd love to hear your tales! Oh, and if you're curious, you can see the first ad for Bally system, here: http://www.ballyalley.com/ads_and_catalogs/jsa/Bally%20Home%20Library%20Computer%20Ad%20(Scientific%20American)/Bally%20Home%20Library%20Computer%20Ad%20(JS+A)(Scientific%20American)(Sept%201977).pdf The advertisement ran in B&W in the original September 1977 ad, but JS&A's 1977 catalog has the ad in full color, here: http://www.ballyalley.com/ads_and_catalogs/jsa/jsa_catalog_(1977)_color.pdf The Astrocade is dead; long live the Astrocade!
