Anybody seen this before? by 2008-06-23 13:32:00

I'm not entirely sure if you can help me but I have something that I'm trying to figure out what it is and didn't see it on your website. My husband's father worked at Westtell labs and one of his collegues worked for activision and gave him this activision cartridge it has a 24 pin chipset on the cartridge on the face of it and a two way switch next to it thats manually labeled 32 and 16, which we assume is bits. There are four chips that our tester chips, but we don't have a working ATari to test it. Handwritten labels Pitfall, Demon Attack, Lock 'n' Chase and one that has no label that we aren't sure what it was. They are also all labeled 32. Have you ever seen anything like this? Can you shed any light on this? Any info is appreciated, thanks!

They're Atari prototypes, the last one is probably a lab loaner. Greg could probably explain them better. Nice stuff to have!

Yep, looks like a lab loaner dealie-bob. You put the chips in the socket and away you go. Considering the games and the design of the cart, I'd say it was from Activision. Probably worth a few bucks on ebay.

Neat! Anybody got a good starting bid for these items? I appreciate the feedback.

Probably a good idea to put a sticker on that last one. If I remember right, ultra violet light erases EPROMs.
