It was one of the most audacious moves in video game history - when Coleco commandeered Atari's massive game library, giving the already attractive console an even stronger position in the marketplace, challenging the very concept of "console exclusive games". The common belief is that in the ensuing legal battle, Coleco won in court, due to the Atari VCS being built from standard "off the shelf" parts, and thus there was nothing to infringe upon. However, it's a misconception that isn't true. In this video, I tried to correct the record regarding the myth, and to tell the story of Coleco's multiple variations on Atari hardware.
I had a spare Atari Expansion module so I built a standalone Atari module... don't know why but it was fun! I originally posted this in the ATARI 2600 forum... its probably more useful here... Hopefully some of the info helps somebody else... Seeya Joe Standalone EXM1.pdf
I have both the 2600(heavy sixer)and the CV expansion module. Which one is "better"? I guess the CV lacks the "authenticity" and the and the feeling of playing on a genuine atari, but does it have any positive sides? Or should I just leave it alone to collect dust and play on my atari? What would you prefer?
