This month I decided to try and make a giant poster that showed all the different format types that are present in the Cabrinety collection. I've gone through 6,000+ titles so far and found 21 unique kinds of software media. Since I keep discovering more it seemed like the poster would never get done. So instead of waiting for it to be complete and perfect, and possibly too big to ever upload to this site, here it is in all its glory:
I expect the caption text might be too small too read on this version of the poster, so this is what it says:
First Row (L-R): Atari 400 cartridge, Sega Game Gear cartridge, Intellivision cartridge, Commodore 64 cartridge, Vectrex cartridge, Atari 2600 cartridge
Second Row (L-R): ColecoVision cartridge, Atari 7800 cartridge, computer disc (3.5"), Atari 400 cassette, Sega Card
Third Row (L-R): TI-99/4A cartridge, Tandy Color Computer cartridge
Fourth Row (L-R): Atari 5200 cartridge, Sega Genesis cartridge, Nintendo Entertainment System cartridge
Fifth Row (L-R): Computer disc (5.25"), Super Nintendo Entertainment System cartridge, IBM data cartridge
Sixth Row: Sega CD
ASSORTED SOFTWARE MEDIA TYPES FOUND IN THE STEPHEN M. CABRINETY COLLECTION IN THE HISTORY OF MICROCOMPUTING, CA. 1975-1995.
THIS REPRESENTS ONLY A FRACTION OF THE COLLECTION.
