I asked my father to look in his archives/records about at what time he actually bought the TI-99/4A console and the cartridges and how much they did cost back then in Austria.
He bought the basic console in Novemer of 1983 with one command module. He bought another command module in February 1984. In March 1983 he bought a tape recorder from ASAHI, a TI computer book, Extended Basic and several modules.
His records sadly miss the names of the cartridges except for Extended Basic. We had Number Magic, Blackjack & Poker, Yahtzee, Indoor Soccer, Hangman. We had a pair of TI Joysticks as well. We aquired several other cartridges after some years, but he has no records about prices and time.
|Unknown Command Module||11/83||690||50,14||66.87|
|Unknown Command Module||02/84||269||19,55||26.07|
|Other Command Modules||03/84||1169||84,95||113.30|
|Unknown TI Computer Book||03/84||490||35,61||47.49|
|Asahi Tape Recorder||03/84||1025||74,49||99.34|
Note, that my father aquired all stuff after the black friday in the US, but I don't know yet if it was known in Europe that Texas Instruments will stop the production of its console and will leave the home computer business. If anyone has more information about the happenings in Europe back in the day, please contact me.
