7800 Ballblazer prototype?

Recommended Posts

I put this up on ebay today, not really sure if it is a final production version or what. Then I noticed on the screen shot that I took there is something I didn't recognize that made me start to wonder if it's NOT the final version. The second screen shows

 

Atari Corporation,

 authorized user

 

Any thoughts on whether this is a final version or some near-finished WIP?

Some dude sold a bunch of those on ebay about ten years ago. I have one as well. It is just the ROM chip stuck in a ZIF socket.

So that "authorized user" shows up on the released cartridge too? Sorry, I never really played Ballblazer before and don't have one handy to compare.

Yep I have one of those still as well.

Did any of the eproms that were sold with that zif board have any games on them? I've tried them all and... nothing. I don't even know if they are 7800 or 2600 eproms or something else. Only the Ballblazer chip works.

No, they were all junk data IIRC.
