I find it funny how the chips are over a year older than me. It's not 77, sure, but still nice to have them around. One day when my daughter grows up I'll tell her that the console we've been playing is actually older than her daddy, haha.

My first Atari!

 

"MANUFACTURED FOR ATARI, INC.

BY WONG'S ELECTRONICS CO. LTD:

IN HONGKONG

MODEL NO CX-2600 P"

 

Serial Number 8003825

 

Woodgrain Light Sixer, speaker vents, channel switch A-B at bottom, PAL. The cable to the tv is coming out of the box and goes straight into the LED tv's antenna port. The tv recognized it as new analogue channel.

 

 

I got it for us for Valentine's (n00b alert!). Included were joysticks and one set of paddles and four all-Atari games (Space Invaders, Championship Soccer, Breakout, Basketball) with boxes and manuals (except one), setup manual, and a brochure of cartridges available from Atari. Were these games maybe included with the console when it came out in Germany?

 

Cheers,

DJV.

S/N: 032261 U

Sunnyvale C012782 U REV. B

 

Speaker slits. Gap at the bottom for A-B channel select but no switch.

 

Light Sixer. Because it's not all about the weight, it's what you do with it that counts, am I right, guys? And my Atari gets a lot of action!

I used to have some kind of sixer, bought in '78 or '79, and I even think I wrote down the s/n, but it got deleted long ago (I think--I'll look for it tomorrow).

 

In the meantime, I just got a light sixer, S/N 81216001. So, sometime in early '81. :) I can play Space Shuttle again!

Hi Everyone

 

Light Sixer PAL by Atari

Manufactured by Atari-Wong Ltd in Hong Kong

Model: CX-2600 P

S.N. 549510948

Has speaker grills - no speakers though

Channel select hole that switches between Channel 1 and 2.

 

Some people mentioned the number stuck to the metal shielding on the inside: 99 06300057

 

This unit is almost brand new off showroom floor condition - and interesting that on the underside is a second silver sticker saying

"Sold and Serviced by

alback electronics Pty/Ltd

1 william street, Raymond Terrace

** company logo of what looks like a VHS machine or HiFi equipment ** and an odd phone number 87 3419"

 

Being in Australia, that isn't a number system we use so i have no idea where that is. I have photos :)

Has speaker slits and channel 2 and 3 switch underneath.

No manufacture date labelled on paper taped to RF shielding but probably around 1980.

Also red service sticker
