ColecoVision Expansion Module No 1 - Atari 2600 Adaptor

Expansion Module No. 1 allows all cartridges compatible with the Atari 2600 VCS to be played on CBS ColecoVision console.

The Expansion Module No. 1 is effectively a complete Atari system, relying on the host ColecoVision system only for power and video modulation. Because of this, all Atari games were compatible with the Expansion Module - with the exception of those using a wider cartridge shape, for which Coleco offered an adapter.

Date : 1982

Manufacturer : Coleco


This exhibit has a reference ID of CH50839. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
