Pac Man Collection on Colecovision

Recommended Posts

I'm curious as to how much this great homebrew would cost today if bought off Ebay. I've been checking to see if it comes up, and there's nothing, so I haven't a clue what it would sell for. Any ideas?

I sold my copy for around $350. It would be cheaper to get a multicart and download the ROM.

 

I was confident that the only ones I have seen on ebay in the past were over $150 for sure, but $350... wow! :-o

Such a great game! I gave a copy to the Mighty John Lester for review some years back and he left it in a rental car in a mad dash to a retro gaming show ;) ...

 

And yeah, it's on my multi-cart...

There are tons of copies out there so I would think only the yellow cart would be expensive since that was the first release. The others hopefully wouldn't be too expensive.

A yellow cart version just sold on eBay for $299.99. It wasn't up for long before it was bought by someone. I have the black cart version but wouldn't mind the yellow instead; but that's a lot to expect to spend but should be expected what with first runs being generally more scarce not to mention seemingly more sought after.

The new and improved Opcode release, Pac-Man Collection DX, is on the soon to be released list...

The old version is perfect already. I don't see how it can be improved. What's so special about the DX version, anyway?

I actually prefer all of the sounds in the old version over the arcade or the new version . Not that they are bad , but opcodes first Pac-Man game sounds are just that good in my opinion . Yes I will buy the new one ofcourse .

For starters it's deluxe. I believe it will use the Opcode SGM module allowing for graphical and sound improvements. I think the original is great but the arcade versions are the benchmark and this collection did not and could not reach that level with the original horsepower of the Coleco.

Will the new one be playable on a CV without the SGM?

no there are tons of old copies and i think the rom is out there too if you want to play without the SGM. The new one is only better supposedly because of the sound chip that he can use in the SGM.

It's hard to imagine that the sound chip is going to improve it much. It's very well done and would have been a real treat had it been released in the early 80s.
