Spectravideo vs Spectravision Rarity?


Recommended Posts

I found a cartridge of Planet Patrol, and noticed that it said "Spectravideo" on it. I was wondering if this minor detail made any difference, so I checked the rarity guide, but couldn't find any info about the Spectravideo version... So is it the same rarity as a Spectravision cart? More rare? Less rare?

In late 1982 the company was renamed to Spectravideo due to a naming conflict with OnCommand's Hotel TV system called SpectraVision.


The first editions of the Spectravision labels (no copyright text above the word Spectravision) are rarer than the second editions of the Spectravision labels.


Take a look at Gangster Alley to see what I mean:
