Hey everyone

I need an idea on what an Atari System 1 cabinet is worth.
It is fully working and in great condition. It was being played at Steves last meet.

I fon't have pictures handy but a general idea would be great.

Cheers

Hugely sought after, I'd say.  £800+

Attractive machine, no fun to play. Desirable sure but you won't end up playing it much. Give me Indiana Jones, Marble Madness or Road Blasters any day.

7-800+ seems about right but 1K about top money. IMHO

Haha I know Kdoe. Who would have thought a game isn't universally liked. He obviously doesn't know about the secret tunnel. ;-)

Cheers guys.

So what is a system 1 cabinet without a kit installed worth? £400-£500?

The road runner kit is £400-£500?

Cheers

When I first played Road Runner on Mame, before I started collecting, I thought the game was utter turd.

However it is a totally different experience on a real cab, and the game is actually very playable and enjoyable on the real thing.

The good thing about System 1 cabs are they are interchangeable with other games so it makes them more desirable....if you can get the other kits

Totally agree, rubbish on MAME with digital inputs but different experience on a dedicated cab.

Great game.

I would agree that it is a £700-800 game

Kits seem to sell in the region of £300-400

I was dead excited to see this cab at Steve's meet. I'd only played the Spectrum version (which I loved at the time) and briefly tried to play it in MAME. As other's have mentioned, it's a game that is way better on the original hardware. That being said, I wasn't much good at it!!

Having loved this in the arcades first time around (my local arcade, the wonderful Golden Goose in Llandudno stocked every single Atari cab over the years) I was shocked how poor it is in MAME.  Great game on the real hardware, tough but great!

bought one in good complete condition, 750€! But i would say value is around 1000€! The RR pcb set goes for near 500€, fantastic game, love it! Importand is the condition from the hall effect Sticks! This the ''expensivest'' part from the mashine...

When I worked on the computer versions back in the day, we used to have one of these in the office. Took awhile to learn to enjoy it, but it did happen.

Values seem about right: can't say I've ever seen one up for sale tbh.

Yeah much of the value is in the Hall effect joystick. As other have noted it plays awful in Mame - because it needs the analogue stick.

If the condition of the cab is good and the hall effect is good, then I'd agree with a value around 1,000 euro (£850ish).

That's what I'd pay if I had the room!

Always wondered, why is it called a hall effect joystick?

I think, because effect is similar than hall effect..(in hall effect a electrical carge between a mangentic field change polarity, magnetil fielc inverted...and finally when both are inverted the negative returns to the same part of the electric field, sorry for my bad english...look google).

I think is because is a transitory state, so is not like an analog joystick (like vectrex) is a kind of control that when you turn to full direction then the speed go up to max in this axis but only for a time (hall effect is transitory) and then the speed lowered even if you still have the joystick at the maximun in this axis.

Sorry again, my english is poor.
