Australian PAL 2600 game rarity, cannot find information anywhere!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am new to AA officially. I have been around the traps for sometime and thought I should join finally!

 

Anyways I have a question that has been gnawing at me. There seems to be so much information collated about american NTSC games.

But as i'm downunder we only have PAL games (not brazil PAL-M either which has a different colour encoding system but same refresh and lines at NTSC).

 

A number of the games (total 51 new in box complete) are r7, r8 and r9 on the AA list, but these are Australian and I assume not as rare?

 

Would i be best to write a long list of all these boxed games are to find out, really I am not interested in selling them just curious as to their value and/or rarity (as I know price and rarity are not mutually exclusive).

 

Games Include:

Assault by Bomb

Great Escape by Bomb

Mines of minos by CommaVid

Cosmic Swarm by CommaVid

 

These 4 were on top and handy to grab but I can cinlude the full list if wanted :) Photos to come soon too.

Those Bomb games, I'm not sure of the rarity, but they are scarce, I think.

Commavid games a always rare in NSTC, but I'm not sure of in PAL.

Say, have you ever seen any undocumented Atari 2600 pirate games(check to see if the Atarimania database doesn't have it)? If so, send (me) or preferably (ROM hunter) scans of the cartridges.

They are semi rare,the Bomb games if they are boxed can range from $20- $120 ,depends on the condition of the box and if the top strip is torn.

The commavid games can go for around $20-$60 if boxed and in good condition.

Would love to see pics of your games.

The PAL versions are a lot more common and less valuable.

But as I said before if the boxed are in excellent condition then they will be more valuable.

 

Great Escape - Bomb R6 imo

Assault - Bomb R6 imo

well Ram it by telesys sold recently in USA for $153. It had the black and white label, rarity rating of r6 while the color is an r7.

Anyways it came with the box and manual exactly like i have (although mines the PAL).

I'v been trying to do research looking at old listings on ebay uk, ebay america and ebay aus but many of them are not forsale or havn't been within the past month.

 

Someone has Assault by Bomb forsale in Germany (pal version) box in very poor shape asking $80Euro. Wonder if that will even sell.
