Gameline Master Module *~ for Atari 2600 ~* VERY RARE *~
Note: Unlike some of the Giant Game sellers on eBay that list hundreds of games at a time, we do not use stock (or no) photos of our items. In all of our auctions, what you see pictured below is the actual item up for bid. Why take a chance on being dissapointed with what you receive?? Buy from a seller who shows you exactly what you are bidding on!
Note: We shoot close-up, high resolution photos (normally 300 dpi) using a macro focus. The combination of a macro focus and a high resolution camera setting generally exaggerates the look of any defects pictured on the items we sell. Most defects (ie. scratches or chips) are usually less noticeable when the item is actually in front of you than they appear to be in our photos.
Desription of Item(s) up for Auction:

This Auction is for a VERY RARE Complete in the box, 1983 GameLine Master Module by CVC (Control Video Corporation) designed for use with the Atari 2600 Game system.

Besides the box and Master Module, also included in this auction is Owner's Manual, Game Instruction Booklet and 5 Game Line Personal ID Cards.

This module was intended to be used to download games to a Atari 2600 via a phone line. The games were available for a fee and were limited to only a few uses per download. There is not a whole lot of information available regarding these units. We have only located a couple of online articles regarding them, if you would like to read these articles please click here or here.

The only item(s) up for bid in this auction are those just mentioned..nothing else is included! The above photos are of the exact item(s) up for bid.


Condition of Item(s):

The Master Module was plugged into our phone line and Atari 2600 test unit, it appears to function as intended. Being as this module was designed to work with a long defunct online gaming service, we cannot say with 100% certainty that it works as originally intended.



We have posted a YouTube video of our the unit in action. If you would like to view the video, you can do so by Clicking Here.




Cosmetically the unit is in Very nice condition, In our opinion it must have been used Very Sparingly if at all, or the previous owner was Very Careful whenever they handled it.

The outer cardboad box is complete but shoes some wear and tear.

Please see the above high resolution photos for further details of the condition of the item(s). If you require more information please feel free to ask us questions.

Note:  Unless otherwise stated, all items we sell are in Used "Pre-Owned" condition. While we try to sell only items that are in very nice condition, if you are the type of person looking to purchase an absolutely flawless item, please do not bid on our items. We instead would encourage you to visit a major retailer and purchase a Brand New version of the above item...thank you!
