I’ve recently come across an in box copy of Video Life by CommaVid and I’m hoping someone will have some information about the value of the game along with how I can go about selling it. I’ve seen projected values of the game ranging from $2500 to $10,000, however many of these articles are old and I’m hoping to get an updated value of the game on the current market. The box and cartridge are both in great condition, but I am missing the game manual. Any help as to how I should move forward with selling the game would be greatly appreciated.
Hey folks! It's been a while since we've released any news about "Extra Terrestrials" - the new "holy grail" of Atari 2600 collecting. I have written up a full page about the development of the reproduction of the cartridge with photos: http://pcmuseum.ca/story_etfollowup.asp The page includes information not previously released including information about how many cartridges we have now located out there, an updated worldwide sales map, and more! The site also includes a downloadable link to the ROM - which comes with a bit of a request. The ROM does not play 100% properly on any emulator (that we know of). The original programmer was doing SOMETHING with the Atari back in the day (it really was experimenting without documentation) and the emulators don't like it when it comes to collision detection. You can see and hear the game, but eating the candy doesn't work out right and catching the extra terrestrial isn't right either. If you put the ROM onto a Harmony cart or similar you will see that indeed the same file runs correctly on real Atari 2600 hardware. I've been in touch with the current maintainer of Stella and he did spend some time on it, but is very busy. In his initial look he did not understand what was going wrong and asked that I turn to the community to see if someone can determine what the issue is. I'm also happy to announce that as of today you can order the cart only from Good Deal Games: http://gooddealgames.com/inventory/Atari%202600.html So if you want to play the game properly and own a piece of history at the same time, now is the time to do so! I also want to take this opportunity to thank everyone here on AtariAge and especially awhite2600 for his contributions and hard work on the project (and Michael at Good Deal Games). It has been an amazing experience for us at the museum and we were able to receive UNPRECEDENTED media coverage - bringing to light the fact that while our community might be small, we're still very active and passionate about it.
For those of you still needing to fill that Tigervision hole in your 8-bit Atari collection, there's a 'Matterhorn' up now: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Matterhorn-HOLY-GRAIL-for-Atari-8-bit-Computers-400-800-XL-XE-ONLY-SEVEN-KNOWN-/111629975616? Not the crème de la crème, but rare as sin nevertheless.
