7800 PAL Absolute Entertainment Games Rarity

Recommended Posts

Just a question to PAL 7800 Collectors, what would the rarity on the 6 x 7800 Absolute Entertainment games be? I rarely see them over here in Australia, so they might be more common in Europe. I would give them all 9/10.

 

F-18 Hornet

Kung-Fu Master

Pete Rose Baseball

Super Skateboardin'

Title Match Pro Wrestling

Tomcat: F-14 Fighter Simulator

 

Are the Salu releases more common than the HES ones?

You're missing Double Dragon in the list there ;)

 

As for finding HES vs Salu, hard to say... I know the one title still missing is the Salu version of F18.

Pete Rose Baseball got renamed methinks.

 

Very rare.

 

Title Match: I got it: but expensive - 90$. 

 

Quite or very rare.

 

The others: very rare.

 

If Double Dragon is Absolute; rare, but was lucky to get it with a french/secam 7800 console.

Yeah PR Baseball is just Baseball. DD was Activision, but Absolute was a spin off from Activision anyhow so... close enough heh.

Hi guys,

I am trying to get my head around releases of 3rd party games. I have read several topics about HES/Salu/Activision/Absolute releases and I need clarification on the following please:

 

1. Were HES distributed games always in PAL?

2. Were Salu distributed games always in PAL?

3. Were Absolute branded games available only in NTSC, or were they also PAL?

4. Double Dragon: whose versions are available in PAL and what are in NTSC? I am thinking here about things like "if I see HES DD it is 100% PAL", "if I see Activision DD it is NTSC" etc.

5. Are the HES and Salu releases the same in terms of actual box design and they only differ in actual physical form (card box versus clam shell)?

 

Thanks in advance!

Yes, I have one of those too. I think I have another one of the 7800 HES games with a 2600 label as well.

Yes, yes, NTSC only, Activision = NTSC and HES/Salu = PAL, yes the carts are the same with HES = clamshell box and Salu = cardboard box.
