versions and revisions
And how could this information assist in the reconstruction of Atari's game series?
In the second half of 1978 Atari included the records of the revisions with the Part Serial Number (PSN) and the catalog number on the game boxes.
The information that was registered in the Internal List of Items of the Information System, was now also available to interested parties. And how could this information assist in the reconstruction of Atari's game series?
THE USE OF THE REV.
I have always organized games in two ways to work on research. Either in alphabetical order (easy search), or by catalog number (a natural order).
With the arrival of revisions, I needed another methodology to obtain precision in the reconstruction of the series versions.
ORGANIZATION BY LAUNCH DATE
In order to identify and map all versions of boxes in the Inc. period, I created a new session on the website, organized by the release date of the games, called “timeline”, as the revisions are directly associated with the series and their versions.
I am sharing with the community so that we can insert the missing versions.
NOTE: I decided to change the nomenclature of the version of the box C011822 V.2 (Warranty background and box same color) to G-C014060 and thus be in accordance with the internal documents of Atari. I am already correcting all the links on the research website and social networks, now I need to correct the links in this topic. Therefore, the old links that referred to version C011822 V.2 will no longer work. I will request permission from the forum administrators to edit the old posts.
