Trying to get the cartridge in...

« on: November 21, 2019, 06:48:10 PM »

Recently I picked up a box with my old games (see picture) at my dad's. Must have been unopened for over 30 years. I have done some research and it seems that there are some rare or maybe even very rare pieces. There are 13 Siera versions, but strangely only 4 (#9, #22, #27 and #35) have an actual Siera sticker on the cartridge. Is this common?

I don't own a console anymore, so I can't check whether the games still work. What are the chances they don't?

And I'm considering putting the games up for sale. How is the market right now and am I better off selling them individually or as a whole? And which ones are the rare items?

Thank you very much for any input!

Most of your Philips games are common. I would sell them as a bundle, maybe with 5 games. Some of your Philips games are rarer and more expensive, like Videopac 45 Morse, Videopac 55 Neutron Star and Videopac 56 Norseman. They I would sell individual.

Then of course the C7010, Quest for the Rings and Wall Street. They I would sell also individual.

All Siera games are rare. Some more than others. But they must be complete. That means, that also the cartridge must have a Siera sticker. All Siera games I would sell individual.

Videopac games are robust. I my many years of collecting, I think, I had 2 games that are not working. So your chances are good, that they all do their job.

Andrew, which country are you in?

I may be interested in taking all the common Videopac, (everything but the Siera games,45 Morse,55 Neutron Star, 56 Norseman and the 3 box sets)  in one bundle.

Thanks for the replies so far. I live in the Netherlands. As I said in the initial post, only four of the Siera games have an actual Siera sticker on the cartridge, the others have a Philips sticker. They do have a Siera cover though. Before I start considering selling them I want to find out if they are correct or not, maybe mixed up in the factory, I have no idea. Hopefully somebody can shed some light on this.

The first batch (1 to 13) Videopac games was manufactured in the United States for the European market.

Then, all Videopac games were made in France by "La Radio Technique" (Radiola).

This factory has manufactured all Videopac games for PHILIPS (European market), Radiola & Schneider (French market), Siera (Dutch market, Belgian, Portuguese, Israel and the Middle East) but also for Thomson JOPAC (French market).
Siera's game cartridges have been re-labeled (the Philips label was sometimes still under the Siera brand).

The first batch (1 to 13) made in the United States consisted of glossy labels and shiny cardboard boxes.
The 2nd batch (A, 1 to 26) made in France (Philips & Radiola) was made of cardboard.
The third batch (1 to 60) was in a plastic box (Philips & Radiola).

There is no Schneider label or Schneider box because it was a "new product" for the brand Schneider in 1984, but it was the end of Videopac production.
Siera was only in a plastic box (A, 1 to 38).  Huh?

This is Siera A that my brother in law has. It is different from the one in this auction.
People have asked me about this so I thought I should share.
