    Default Random Atari 2600 titles

    Well I'm not much of a atari collector (too young ), and I was given most of this games by a friend who was just going chuck em anyway. Anyway I need more space for other stuff and I was thinking of getting rid of the atari stuff. However I know nothing about atari so I was wondering what some of these were worth.

    3 of the 4 BOMB titles I could not get to work correctly, they just show jumbled pictures and sound, may be close to death.

    The game with the Dip switches I could not get to work correctly either, Not sure if I am setting it up right though.

    Cross force does not work correctly either.

    Alpha Beam is sealed.

    Almost forgot, all games are PAL format.

    you have some very decent uncommon and rare games in that pile, I'd greatly suggest looking at our online rarity guide on many of them (beofre you anser the myrad of pm's you proabably are about to recieve.


    now that I check some of those are VERY rare games (up to a rarity 8 from what i've looked 75$ value right there from our rariity guide) a very nice haul indeed.

    They're PAL.

    you must be even younger than me. I remember Atari games were still sold in stores when I was around 6 (1992), now I'm 22. Anyway out of those games Motorodeo is fairly rare and should get you at least $30 on AU eBay. Nothing else is too interesting price or rarity wise apart from those BOMB games but I don't know about them because I never looked into them. If you want to check the rarity of your cartridges heres a comprehensive PAL 2600 Rarity Guide

    The PAL games have nowhere near the value of the NTSC versions. If we are talking VCS games of course, I don't know why a Neo Geo game would be brought into it.

    Not really...Kid Ice is correct...the NTSC versions are R9. PAL?...more like R4. They pop up on Australian ebay all the time. Bomb carts are also notorious for failure, and if they're non-working (as the seller seems to indicate), they're nearly worthless. These non-working PAL carts are worth $10-$15 each maximum (and only because they have the manuals).

    CIB PAL versions might sell for $100+, but that's still a fraction of what a (working) NTSC specimen would go for.

    I'm not familiar with international VCS titles but I somehow doubt these PAL prints are as rare as their NTSC counterparts. Kid Ice has already jumped on that though. It's hard for me to judge an exotic games' rarity unless it's common knowledge because I don't have direct access to their market.

    I don't know how they figure in terms of rarity, but as a rule of thumb PAL versions of any hard to find game are generally worth exponentially less than their NTSC counterparts, the major exception being the PAL version of Pengo, since it's an entirely different game.

    ahh my bbad on the value, still pre-internet country exclusives are still pretty rare to people outside said country, so the lot of games stil holds a pretty decent value (if not as much as I previously stated which I totally apolgize for), heck i'd be interested in some just for the novelty value of em

    My mistake, I thought it was an actual different ROM too.
