All Software printed Manuals / Books are in English, All Atari 8 bit Computer Cartridges / Software are NTSC / US versions unless noted.

To aid your Atari Software selection process, Best Electronics has taken the extra helpful step of writing a short description of each Atari Software / Firmware Title in stock and has also done extensive research testing on the Atari software titles we have in stock.   With each new generation Atari 8 bit computer developed over the 15+ year product life span, Atari would continually Upgrade their 8 bit Computer internal Operating systems, so you will find that some of the Atari and third party Atari Software titles, will only run on certain Model Atari 8 bit computer(s) or have certain Minimum Computer memory requirements to run properly and are noted in the software description.

Most Games require a Joystick(s) unless noted.

All Titles are New in the box, unless noted.   Most of the Atari titles we have in stock, came right out of the local Atari Sunnyvale Warehouses.  Many were in the Atari Warehouse Stacked on Pallets of Master Boxed software/games and some were just Loose software titles plied on pallets stacked on top of pallets.  These Atari software Titles were in the Atari Warehouses for 8 to 17+ years, moved around many times (and between the 7 to 10 different Atari warehouses around the World) and reboxed into master cartons over and over every inventory they took.  A Few Atari (not all) Software boxes may have a Minor dent, Scuff mark or crease in the outside of the New boxes after 20+ years of total handling.

Best Electronics has recently had one of those once in lifetime visits from one of the legends of the early Video Game World.  Carol Shaw recently brought in an Atari 810 Disk Drive for repair.   We got to talking about about her very long career in the Video Game World.  Carol Show was one of the few Women of her time to make a name for herself in the all Male dominated Video Game programming field back then.  Carol said programmed Atari 2600 3D Tic Toe Game (one our most favorite 2600 games ever made, it will blow our mind when you play against the 2600 computer and see how you lost), Atari 2600 Video Checkers and the unreleased Atari 2600 Polo game.   She also wrote the code for the Atari 8 bit computer Disk based Atari Calculator Program that used Reverse Polish Notation, that HP used in some of the Scientific Calculators of latter eras.   At Activision Company Carol wrote the code for the Atari 8 bit Computer version of the Classic Video Games ever to this date River Raid Game.   Carol Shaw was one of the very few Programmers of that era, to get the proper Credit for programming Activisions River Raid right on the box.  Her name is shown on the front of every original Atari 8 bit version River Raid sold.  This type of programmer Credit was almost unheard of for that time. 

While at Best Electronics, Carol Shaw kindly autographed (outside of the front of the display box, in blue ink) a few copies of new in box Activisions River Raid Games.   Best has re-shrunk wrapped the new Atari 8 bit version River Raid game and has a few for sale.  Cost to own one of these Carol Shaw signed copies of one of the Video Game Industry legends is $75.00   Limit of one per customer.
