Star Wars - The Arcade Game, a question

Finally picked up a PAL copy of star wars the arcade game with manual. I know the PAL version is more common than the NTSC version (although it is still uncommon, Ive only seen maybe 5 copies around in 10 years) Because the manual is the same, does that make it rarer than the cart itself? Any info would be appreciated :grin:

A PAL version is much more difficult to find than a NTSC version.
But I miss the P-Sticker on your cart. Normally, Australian Parker PAL versions have a P when the game was sold in the NTSC box.

Do you have the box? Serialnumber of the box?
Unless it is a European Parker PAL-version in the NTSC box, then the Pal-carts do not have a P sticker.

 

Maybe there are exceptions, which I would still have to look for and confirm.

It didn't come with a box but it's definitely a PAL version, colour palate is right and the cart is made in australia. I have other parker brothers games that are PAL but don't have the P on them that are made in australia too.

then these PAL carts without the P are in australian boxes with serialnumbers beginning with 2xxxx ?

Popeye

Q*Bert

Super Corba

Tutankham

 

if they have a P then the serialnumbers on boxes should begin with 5xxx

Amidar

Frogger

Reactor

Spider Man

 

Is that so?
