  1. hi rickr, awesome over view. lance www.atarisales.com
  2. hi trekmd, it sure looks like a more filled out game to me also. my kids used to play the 7800 version all of the time. i played the xe version mostly. lance www.atarisales.com
  3. hi everyone, a great poster reminded me in another thread about one on one basketball version on the 7800, vs. the XEGS, both versions are good, but the XE version looks like a apple port to me, still fun, but lacks color and a good back round. but the 7800 version looks to be a complete rewrite as the poster suggested, very colorful, great back rounds, fun to play. i am also going to include the atari 2600 version of basketball, it really is the basis in my opinion for one on one basketball. the 7800 version, XEGS version, thanks, lance www.atarisales.com
  4. hi the claw1982, thank you very much!!!! lance www.atarisales.com
  5. hi justin, yep, its like using two fishing poles with different bait. you might hook one fish, if you are lucky, you hook two fish. lance www.atarisales.com
  6. hi trekmd, yes, you would have thought atari would know that. its even just sinking in for me also, i should have know better. lance www.atarisales.com
  7. hi trekmd, if you own the 5200 one, you own the 8-bit one. so that's exactly my point. if they are made a bit different for each platform showing off capabilities, i want it. if its a straight port like the 5200 version, then its something that perhaps someday i may want it. but i have one already on my 8-bit. lance www.atarisales.com
  8. hi rickr, bingo, now that is what i am talking about. its worth collecting if its different. if its nothing more than a straight port with little or no changes, then as a player/collector, its not so urgent to get one. lance www.atarisales.com
  9. hi, its quite the incredible machine isn't it! lance www.atarisales.com
  10. hi, yep, they messed up. but my group plans on rectifying that:) lance www.atarisales.com
  11. hi rickr, true, a few were different, but not enough to make some 8-bit/2600 guys buy one. but the 7800, there was some great differences for sure. lance www.atarisales.com
  12. hi justin, dark chambers rocks!!! yea, the 5200 was sure a waste. but we are making sure its used wisely now! lance www.atarisales.com
  13. hi justin, yea i can understand having a few. i loved military madness on the turbographic. its really the only game i miss from other platforms, and my son hooked up his turbo, so i can play it at his house:) lance www.atarisales.com
  14. hi everyone, atari screwed up when they did not make the ports of 400/800 games a tad bit different on the 5200 than the 8-bit versions. just look at mario bros. for the 2600, 5200, 7800 and XEGM, what a difference all four are. they are a must to own if you are a true collector. lance www.atarisales.com
  15. hi steve, agreed! lance www.atarisales.com
