I recently picked up a Light Sixer CX-2600 but it came in a box that says Atari 2400. I have not been able to find any info on the existence of such a thing. Did they just make the boxes but not the systems? The only unique thing on the box says "Distributed in Canada by Irwin Electronics" so could this be special packaging used just in Canada?

I wonder when this was sold. I'm guessing that it was a later release (probably 1983 or 1984).

 

I received my (Canadian) Atari 2600 in early-1982. I do not recall if it was distributed by Irwin, but it certainly did not have the sliver labelled box. It also included two pack-in cartridges.

So this was an official Atari product, not a clone?

Anyone know the story on the "2400?" Doesn't seem like it would just be a misprint.

It sounds like a misprint, from the AA evidence I've seen.

I actually saw one on Sunday, at the CGCC swap meet... one mentioned in one of the threads here.
