Tim Duarte, of the Atari 2600 website (http://www.2600connection.com/), gave me a bit of news a few days ago concerning new Astrocades. Technically they are not new, but NOS (New Old Stock). When I read how much these systems were selling for, and (even better) what they were shipping with, I was pretty doubtful about this information (seeing what time of year that it is right now). I spent a few days following-up on this information, and to my delight and surprise, I discovered that Tim is absolutely right! Here's the information as Tim sent it to me originally: Astrocade Resurfaces and Releases the Astrocade with Pack-In Game The Incredible Wizard 2017 A recent Topeka, Kansas warehouse find of over 10,000 new-still-sealed-and-in-the-box Bally Astrocade video game systems has led to the restructure and start-up of a new company who has taken on the name of Astrocade to sell these systems to the general public. These systems are prone to overheating, so you are taking a chance if you purchase one. After all, all this hardware has been in a box just sitting there in a warehouse for over 35 years! The retail price of each system will be $45.99. Shipping rates will vary. Astrocade has stated they will ship internationally, so our international Bally Astrocade fans are all set (of course, all these units are NTSC-- no PAL Astrocade systems were ever made). So, the bad news is that you may end up with an Astrocade system that does not work, or works but overheats after a short period of time. There will be no refunds, but at this price... even a non-working NOS Astrocade seems like a fair deal. The newly-setup company, run by just two men, have done some spot checking of the units. They said that they're sure at least 90% of units work. The good news is that the package includes a new version of the Wizard of Wor game, entitled The Incredible Wizard 2017. It looks like it is the programming assembly language code from the 1982 game release from what can be determined from the screen shots, but that is okay. This is a great game and I am just happy to report that the Astrocade system is back! Take a look at the game box and packaging! It is just awesome! That's all the news that Tim sent to me. He promises to follow-up on it when he gets more information. As I said, since this news seemed so, you know, not quite right, I followed-up on this news using information that Tim sent to me. I contacted Astrocade to see if I could pre-order a couple of the Astrocade consoles. I was so happy when the man I spoke to recognized my name (from my http://www.ballyalley.com/ website). He decided to send me a new Astrocade free of charge. I'm supposed to get it at the beginning of this coming week. I already have the package's tracking number. I just check and the system is half-way here already. Now, was that nice of the guy or what?!? I can't wait to open up the box and let out some of that 1980s' air. Hooray for Astrocade! Hooray for us all! Adam
When I got into Jaguar, in 2013 or so; Best, B&C and various other sources still had Jag's and Jag CD's at somewhat sane prices and many games new and sealed as well. I was able to acquire a good chunk of my library as NOS. New Jags are now listed for $700 and Jag CD's are long gone. Well it's been a few years since i've really looked. I've mostly been buying new games, home-brews, ports and such. Looking again at these sites and eBay, it appears we are really scraping the bottom of the barrel as far as Jaguar New Old Stock is concerned. There are some copies of the worst titles left sealed, but that's about it. Interesting that it took the better part of 25 years to get here, but worth noting. Am i just imagining this; or anyone else noticed?
