atari's polo


Recommended Posts

The green box, text label Polo was released at the "Philly Classic 3" gaming convention in 2002. I'm pretty sure that it was a limited production run of 200 units.


The red label Polo was released the following year at the "Philly Classic 4" gaming convention. I *think* that it was a production run of 150 but I'm not 100% sure about that. I actually just sent Cassidy a message earlier today asking if he could confirm the production numbers for me. I'll get back to you if he responds.

Warner Communications owned both Atari and Polo so they wanted to do that. Didn't Warner Communications also own Nickelodeon and Chuck E. Cheese? Maybe there could be a Nick game for the 2600 or a Chuck E Cheese game.

Pretty much every Atari product tie-in was done because Warner wanted to cross-promote something else they owned (DC Comics, Franklin Mint). I think Warner only owned Chuck E. Cheese because Bushnell started it while he was still at Atari. Once he left, he took Chuck with him. I'm sure I have the details completely wrong, but it wasn't a Warner property any time they would have been doing tie-in games.
