  2. Hello, I am Matsuda123. I've recently begun a mission to find the AKIRA prototype for the Sega Genesis, and possibly the SNES. I've had some progress so far, and I feel I am inching closer to finding, or perhaps, getting closure at least. AKIRA is my favorite movie, and it's really sad that the games never came out in the 16-Bit era. :/ I'm desperate to find the game. I have been contacting as many developers from Hand Made Software, THQ, and Black Pearl as I can, but it is unfortunately tremendously difficult to find them online these days. I was wondering, has anyone here come into contact with the following people: Rob Nicholson Matthew Harmon Ed Ouano Shanti Traskowski Seemingly anyone who worked on Kasumi Ninja If so, do you still have the contact information, and would you be willing to PM me the contact info? I'm really desperate to find this game, and hopefully, share it with the world. These four names in particular seem to be the most closely linked to AKIRA from what I have gathered thus far.
  3. That's right!! A great news for the whole ColecoVision community! CollectorVision found & preserved another unreleased game! This game has NEVER been dumped before and this is the only cartridge in existence! The game is not a prototype, it's the full game We're going to post more informations about this awesome find, soon!
  4. (Not sure if this belongs more in Prototypes or here; a mod can feel free to move if they like) Eat your heart out DDR and Dance Evolution. This was one of Atari's laserdisc projects, although I hadn't seen it on any games list before this. Unearthed by the Strong National Museum of Play: https://arcadeheroes.com/2019/02/27/arcade-history-the-atari-dance-machine/
  5. First post. The console and all the games were purchased at a garage sale sometime in the mid 80s. My brother and I played these games as kids not realizing what they were at the time. Prototype, weird black cartridge, whatever.. they were just games to us. We played the hell out of the Atari until the Nintendo hit the scene. After that the console, all games, and game center were shelved. I've been holding onto it, as well as some other retro electronics from my youth like my Commodore 64 and 128. Fast forward 30+ years and while moving I'm browsing through the box its in and the games and pull out these prototypes. Wow! As an adult now and realizing what they were It was like finding treasure that I didn't know I had. I can only assume the person who sold them at the garage sale 30+ years ago must have had some connection with Atari in some way. I don't really know who all got these prototypes back in the day. Not really sure how rare these are in general but its been fun trying to educate myself on these as a lifelong gamer.
  6. I'm new to these forums and just replied all of this in another forum but thought to get best results that maybe I would start my own thread. Here is what I wrote in the other thread. Thanks. I was wondering if anyone here might be able to help me. Bill Loguidice suggested I write something here in the Atariage forums for some help. My good Friend Doug Hardy who was one of the engineers who helped design the 2600, 400 and 800 just recently passed. When I say design, I mean the casings/consoles, cartridges and how everything went together. His name is on several Atari patents including the cartridge. He was part of the team at Fairchild and engineered the cartridge there and literally the day he finished and the prototype was done he walked out the door and went to Atari. He gave me what he said is the very first "Candy" as he called her still. This Atari 400 according to him was the first prototype they put together after they finished with all engineering and had all the parts. You can tell by the way it's able to be taken apart and the fact that there is no serial number plate on it that it's a prototype. It does have a handwritten number on the inside of the machine itself. All pieces are still there including of course the electronics. Doug always told me that this machine was something special and so I want to see if there is anyone I can talk to about it. If anyone wants to send me a message or contact me I would love to find out more. By the way, I have him on audio talking all about how he ultimately came up with the design for the cartridge and how it wouldn't wear out plus stories of the 2600, 400 and 800. I'd love to see how I can put that on here somewhere so people can hear his story. I also have some really good stories from him on audio/video talking about the atmosphere at Atari (yes it was some crazy times) and how corrupt it became once Warner took it over. Any help would be appreciated. Dennis
  7. Just looking for some info on it... maybe a value? https://goo.gl/photos/KDvknpEzG3rq5mAK6
  8. I am digging out some of the rare stuff in my collection (after 20+ years of storage) and wondering what the value on some of them are... Specifically, here's an Atari 1200 prototype unit. I haven't tried to turn it on, but it worked years ago when I last powered it up. I have a couple of 8-bit prototypes, 5200 prototypes, and quite a few 2600 prototypes I'll be asking about soon, too! Thanks for your help...
  9. Is there a Vectrex ROM ripper/downloader? I have a Bedlam EEPROM prototype and would like to download the ROMs. Thanks
  10. I've listed some homebrews / unreleased prototypes on ebay. 18 unique auctions, will combine shipping: http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=riffraffgames&_armrs=1&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.X2600+hb.TRS0&_nkw=2600+hb&_sacat=0 Auctions have been completed - thank you very much to everyone who made bids!
  11. As per the title, a complete beta of Toki has been found for the Atari 7800. This announcement is a bit overdue, as it was found several years ago by BuddyBuddies (another AA member) and I on the same test department hard drives as our Lynx discoveries. It appears to be PAL format and Information on the title screens indicate that it is "Toki Beta 2, Copyright 1993 Atari Corp" which would've made it an usually late release. Although I've been interested in the 7800 for a little while and have a decent collection of games, we're not very familiar with the 7800 scene so we're starting from scratch in regard to exploring the possibilties of releasing Toki. We are going to try to get the game to the right people and hope to have more information with regard to what can be done with this soon. For more information on Toki for the 7800, as well as the other titles we discovered on the test department hard drive, please visit our website HERE (where I've already gone through the trouble of organizing the information!). Other stuff we found on the hard drive include what appears to be some of the latest stuff Atari was working on for the 7800 and Lynx, including Klax (7800), Toki (7800), Hotdog (Lynx), Road Riot 4WD (Lynx), Poker (Lynx), Relief Pitcher (Lynx) as well as an as-of-yet unannounced title. Below are some screens. Here is the toki specific page of our site.
  12. I'm selling some of my prototype/eprom cartridges... Here it is the first for Gameboy on Ebay... eBay Auction -- Item Number: 171568020077
  13. I was wondering if anyone could please help me out. I was cleaning out my Dad's basement the other day and came across this atari 400 cartridge. Mr. Do!'s Castle I have done some research on it and i know it was never suppose to be released but it was released in Canada for awhile. This is not that cartridge though I am wondering if anyone has ever seen this before Any input would be greatly appreciated
  14. Hi everyone, I would not advertise our Ebay auction if it were not 100% for charity. The amount of the highest bid will be transferred to doctors without borders by us. Ebay and paypal costs will be paid by me. Also shipping within Germany. Some details (also given in the auction description). - Assembloids 2600, fully working prototype - one of only two ever assembled carts (the other one is in good hands already) - PAL version (!) - the full final price will be donated to doctors without borders (the german division of it). Since there are quite some European Atari friends, I wanted to post it here as well Thanks to Slator who is also a member here and involved in this charity project as he paid for the hardware and organized the prototype board. You will find the auction here (link to german ebay): http://www.ebay.de/itm/201004413867 I will keep you posted on the success in the end, we are quite happy already. Cheers, Martin /enthusi
  15. Trying to find more information and photos about the line of telephones Atari was working on in the early 1980s. It's fascinating stuff, but Atari Museum has very little information. Does anyone know where the prototypes have gone (thinking the trash, but hoping otherwise)? Are there more, higher quality photos? Did the kiosk ever make it out of the Atari offices? Thanks all!
  16. This is a cross-post from Digital Press. I've gotten some great Vectrex/prototype information from here in the past though, and I figure you guys would be the be the ones to know. I recently purchased a large lot of Vectrex prototypes and I'm trying to find out how early they are in relation to their production counterparts. I've done some digging but have only been able to find years in which games were released and not actual dates. One prototype in particular, Pole Position, is dated 8-15-83. I've seen it listed as being released in 1983, but no actual reference to the month/day in which it hit shelves. I have about 15 or so prototypes I'm trying to get release dates for, so any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
  17. For the next 7 days on Ebay: eBay Auction -- Item Number: 281129752479
  18. New to the board. I am a toy dealer/broker. I recently found a copy of what is supposedly a very rare prototype cartridge of Probe 2000 War Room. Can anyone verify or provide more information about this cartridge? Thank you, Sherif Owner Secondplay.com
  19. Just bumped on this in ebay. Prototype revisions of atarisoft super storm game http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.de%2Fitm%2FTI-99-4A-SUPER-STORM-Texas-Instruments-SUPER-Rare-Prototype-Video-Game-Cartridge-%2F150983851385%3Fpt%3DVideo_Games_Games%26hash%3Ditem232756bd79
  20. I just received these in the mail today: Smurf Paint and Play and Star Trek. They look like some kind of pre-production cart, maybe a lab loaner or a proto. Both of them weigh 8g. I just sold my two Star Treks too, so I can't compare weight. I do know that CV production carts go from 6g to at least 8g. If anyone could weigh their production carts, I'd appreciate it. I haven't had time to compare these to the production dumps, but I'll try to see if there are any differences.
  21. A short time ago I received a very cool package at my arcade which was a unique prototype board for Namco's Pac-Man Battle Royale. The wide release version of the game can be found at many arcades around the world but Namco created a software update that improved several aspects of the game - no idea why they didn't release it as it is much better over the original. I really like coming across arcade prototypes, I find them to be more exciting than console ones (not to diminish how cool console game protos can be, I have a few of those for the Jaguar which are neat). I'll save myself re-typing up the full details, I have them along with pictures over at Arcade Heroes.
  22. Hey guys, this is interesting stuff. My friend Marcus Garret, here in Brazil, has just put his hands on this: This is the rather elusive ONYX ColecoVision prototype from Microdigital - the same company who made the Onyx Jr, the only Atari with pause in the world, millitary theme, etc. History goes: last weekend, a Microdigital ex-employee, when cleaning his attic, came across this piece of treasure, and gave to Marcus, who's a dedicated researcher (he wrote 2 books about Atari). At this moment, nobody knows for sure if the proto works, but probably yes. Several pirate carts were found too. You guys can check all the pictures here: https://plus.google....=CPKM7taYm6vHBA
  23. Is it true that the Mario Bros. (1983) port for the Atari XL computers was never actually released? If so, then that means there were virtually no official computer-based ports of MB at all, at least not here in the USA (prior to the 1988 Atari XEGS port, which itself was an improvement on the original 5200 cartridge port and with audio inspired by the Nintendo FamiCom/NES version of the same game). It would also mean that the so-called "XL" ports of the game I'm seeing was just the 5200 console version's ROM burned onto other media. The unreleased pre-1984 ports (USA): Atari XL (just a transfer from the 5200) Apple II (partially finished) Commodore 64 (finished) Pre-1984 ports of Mario Bros. that were released in the USA: Atari 2600 Atari 5200 Post-1984 ports (USA availability): Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) (also was a bonus mini-game within Super Mario Bros. 3) Atari 7800 Atari XEGS Super Nintendo Entertainment System (as a bonus mini-game within Super Mario Bros. 3) Game Boy Advance (as a bonus game on all four Super Mario Advance titles, and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga) ~Ben
  24. Don't see this everyday... Mentions cartridges, but doesn't show the front of the one that is in the pictures. And strangely doesn't show it running, with ambiguous comments about it's working condition. Has anyone seen this one in person. https://www.ebay.com/itm/222898551832?ul_noapp=true
