    Are you sure it's not the 8-bit Atari computer port?

    i don't know. Its says the VCS system on the french printing of it. That lead me to believe it was the Atari 2600 since it was named the VCS originally for the french.

    Somebody at the printing press must have been asleep at the job.

    How big is the cartridge compared to a 2600 or Colecovision cart? If it's smaller, it's probably for the Atari 8 bit computers.

    well i just tried to insert it into my atari and it didn't go through, so yes someone did fall asleep at the job when printing the labels. It looks like it might fit into a Colecovision. Label variation i guess
