PARKER BROS. STAR WARS

Recommended Posts

I think this is one of the best games put out on the colecovision but my question is this:

 

 

why didnt atari put the game out since they put out the original arcade game?

 

I read somewhere that kenner owned the rights and they owned parker brothers but i called bullshit on that because kenner didnt aquire the parker brother brand until 1985, years after parker brothers put it out on cartridge format.

Atari didn't program the port. A vector game on a vector display(the original arcade) is considerably different than a raster game. For Atari to develop the port and publish it, they could have, sure. But they were already bleeding money at that time and someone beat them to the punch.

 

Missed opportunity.

I've asked this question before, and the answer given to me was that Parker Bros. had the rights to develop Star Wars home video games at the time which meant Atari couldn't release the home version of their own arcade game on their own.

I think that should be part of your signature.
