Atari 7800 with a load of games, manuals, and an EEPROM cartridge

Recommended Posts

My old college buddy has offloaded his old 7800 to me, telling me to use it or dispose of it as I see fit. Thus have I scribed this notice upon eBay to advertise and dispose of it.

 

Some sort of modified cartridge that accepts 24-pin chips (I believe they're EEPROM chips?) with burned games is included.

 

FEAST THINE EYES UPON IT, AND THAT WITHOUT DELAY!

 

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 2908167174001?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=290816717400&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

Well...... Is 7800 restricted military technology ?

I can see the listing fine... :?

Don't forget I live in France. It's forbidden. Verboten. Interdit.

Have you perhaps forgotten? The Atari is indeed restricted military technology!

Furthermore, and perhaps not by coincidence, the friend and the father who once owned this system do actually work for a defense company on classified technology! Perhaps they once hid secret plans on one of these cartridges!

 

Maybe this explanation, along with my sincerest apologies, will be some consolation to those outside the continental U.S. who live in locations to which I will not ship.
