Atari release?

Post by Roman »

Hi folks,

I found these pictures on some eastern European store websites:

Looks like an Atari budget rerelease of TTD in a DVD box, similar to Infogrames' 2001 replay edition. It has an ELSPA 3+ rating sign on it, and ELSPA used this sign only during 2002-2003 apparently.

Does anyone know more about this? Was this actually sold?

Nobody? I was hoping someone from Hungary, Czech Republic or Slovakia might know more. At first I thought it might be a mockup image mixing elements from the original 1995 Microprose box and the 2001 Infogrames replay DVD case, but the white margins on the sides are different, and the Atari logo confuses me. Why would someone feel the need to fake a product image like that?

There's another Norwegian store that uses this as the product image:

Is it fake? I wouldn't think it be out of line for Atari to have once offered that.

Yes, I wouldn't rule out the possibility either, it's just weird that I can find absolutely no record of this other than the linked store pages, which offer almost no details.

Surely, if this is a real existing edition, then Atari or ELSPA would have had it on record somehow. Unfortunately Atari went bankrupt in 2013, and ELSPA transformed into ukie in 2010, both making it somewhat unlikely that they still know about this.
