Atari Launches 50th Anniversary 2600 Collectible Cartridges
Atari has unveiled the beginning of a new set of collectible cartridges for the Atari 2600. There will be a series of 10 cartridges coming out over the course of the next six months. To start off the collection are two famous games, Adventure and Missile Command which are available for pre-order now for $99.99 each on the Atari XP official site and on Limited Run Games.
Each cartridge will have reimagined artwork and will come in packaging inspired by the original packaging for the Atari 2600 games. Each cartridge will also feature an acrylic logo on the top that will be special to each game and will light up when being played. They will also come with a color-printed instruction manual, a hard enamel collectible pin, and a twill-woven collectible patch.
Adventure and Missile Command pre-orders are open until July 31 with cartridges shipping 30 days after the preorder window ends.
