What's the latest Atari related thing(s) you've bought on ebay?

You have to select "completed auctions" on the left, after you search the item number.

 

Thanks. I had the impression that it would still come up with "you have missed that listing" if it was expired. Maybe EBay changed the logic.

For the RanaSystems 1000, doesn't it look nice?

That's indeed nice and a steal at that price!

I say it's past time for a VBXE remake of this classic game.  I'm just looking for volunteers / models to photograph for the remake :)

Ooh boy.  Googled it.  Atari hobby isn't worth a divorce, age difference, etc.  Oh well.  It was a good thought while it lasted.

I always liked Raid Over Moscow. Access turned out some really good titles for the 8-bits!

The latest Atari related thing I got on ebay was Bounty Bob Strikes Back cart.

 

I've never liked the 2600 joystick. Hated mine as a kid. I'll be looking for a decent joystick.

I used to have an Amiga joystick, it had 3 buttons and little triangular ones as well. Needless to say, you only needed the one and you only effectively got the one as well.

is this a Brasil developed title, Luis? I can't imagine America bringing out a cart game about 'Pele' specifically. 

Of course the rest of the world knows.

You'd be dead wrong... Pelé ended his career in the US playing for the New York Cosmos a few years prior to the release of the game and soccer was pretty popular in the country at that time. It pretty much fizzled out when he retired but the NASL had a decent following in the mid to late seventies.

 

Also, the Cosmos were backed by Warner Communications so probably no coincidence.

Yep. I actually wrote a paper about Pele in middle school? (I think? I was probably 12 or 13, which would have been around 1980).

 

I think I still remember his full name. Someone check me on this, I did not google this:

Edson Arantes DeNacimento. 
 

Did I get it right?
 

And when this game came out, I bought it as soon as I could. 
 

I lived in Ohio in the US. 
 

I played soccer, but was better at sitting in front of a keyboard than dribbling a soccer ball. 
 

Also, of course this game was geared toward North America, it has the word Soccer in the title. 🙃

Yea, soccer was huge in the U.S. during the Eighties. I remember hundreds of kids playing in my town's community center that was in charge of the town's sports.

Just a boring joystick, I seem to have lost a couple of them in my move 2 years ago or have accidentally thrown them away at some point (?!) and I got married in April so needed another joystick to lure the wife in to vintage gaming (eased her in with NES emulation).

This one was hard to pass for less than $30 (and no dump available on Atarimania):

Seems complete.

Never would've guessed that Peachtree was released for the A8!

Exactly my thoughts.

Info/Soft 5000.  Not bad for $22 :)

NICE!!!

 

One of my favorite text-based main menus, with good use of Atari's text & color capabilities:

Amazaed Peach Tree did anything for A8.  Also, not sure how I am just noticing, the InfoSoft menu using the VERY much underused ANTIC Mode 3 with descenders.

That's the one :)

 

Seller found a "INFO/SOFT" OPERATING DISK and has sent that today :)

Can't wait to see what is on it...

Lucky you!!!!
 

A glimpse of light in the tunnel! MAYBE the long-awaited system disk (with DEMOS!), also good to store actual data! 

 

Talk about a chance to see Info/Soft-5000 working as it was originally intended (I've always wondered, without ever finding that damn disk!)
