Pepsi Invaders Proto ...

Recommended Posts

Yes, it is the real deal. Final version.

 

Not the final, this one has a clock of 2:30 instead of 3:00 so it's a very late WIP.

I have the listing on ebay. There is a fairly recent thread in the prototype forum for a Pepsi invaders/coke wins proto that is very similar to mine. They look identical the only difference I could see is the stickers over mine say Pepsi and the other guys says coke. He even mentions his has the same play time difference from the released version, 3:00 vs 2:30.

 

I acquired this game back in the late 90's or early 2000's. I've had a couple of messages on ebay questioning it's authenticity because they feel the eprom stickers are to clean or look to new. All I can say is I have not modified or changed anything since acquiring this proto. The game has been in climate controlled storage, eprom board in its case the entire time. The stickers are not as "clean" as the photo makes them out to be, in fact the front sticker is entirely smudged but in the photo appears mostly white. I'll try to take a few more pics tomorrow and post them here.

Looks similar to mine, so thumbs up from me too. Which is a good point, I can't recall if mine is a 2:30 or 3:00 version, maybe I'll fire it up...

Really pissed right now, ebay removed the auction with less than 30 minutes to go saying it violated copyrights. This rare item is for sale, if anyone's interested please message me.

Wow that blows... :sad: I wondered what happened as I was watching it, got the "ending soon" email but never got the final "got away" notification. Glad to see you sold it after the fact.

 

eBay is so stupid. Ban legit protos and genuine homebrews but let repros and fakes slip by all day long. :mad:

I won't be listing anymore protos on ebay for sure. I have 3 more protos and a review copy game that i'll be listing here on atariage. I do want to thank Cpuwiz and Tempest for taking the time to look over what I have and giving me their more expert opinions. A big thank you to Albert for providing the venue to sell these games.

Ebay sucks in many ways. I can't tell you how many times I tried to sell a promo trading card of Penthouse Comix that shows NO nudity at all and have them remove it because of that. And of course if you call you're probably speaking to "John" from India.

Some dick reported the auctions, no doubt. There are some people reading these forums, that really need a swift kick in the nuts.

That is the reason I don't promote any of my homebrew, proto or repro games I have at auctions on AtariAge anymore as I found out over

time that there is a collation between advertising them here and getting them pulled vs not advertising them here. It was a sad thing to find

out but alas that is just the way it is. :sad:

Well, Shawn. That can work except when others post them on here. I can't tell you how many times I've seen listings posted by people who aren't the seller with the phrase "not mine" in the title or initial post.

Like the scumbag who sold the $700 Red Sea Crossing repro...

http://atariage.com/forums/topic/245375-atari-2600-red-sea-crossing-real-or-fake/

 

Looks like the OP will be getting his money back but has to fork over $70 to return that turd. Fact is, the eBay moderators have no expertise on what counts as counterfeit or legit auctions. And it is clear based on the Air Raid thread, that people can flag auctions until the cows come home and eBay simply doesn't listen. :mad:
