And here is the theme music for it!

It's an 80's cartoon based on an arcade game.  What would you expect?!  LOL

At first I was disappointed that it wasn't included on the original "Let's compare" video but then I realized that was only for the original Pole Position.  Still, I think PP2 should have been included.  :)

An updated version of the comparison video has been added to the first post (the original video appears to have been removed from YouTube).  This new video compares Pole Position and Pole Position II.  Check it out because this version has 23 different versions!

Thanks for the update information, TrekMD. Wow, 23 versions. I have always wanted to try the Vectrex version as it looks amazing from the videos and screen shots.

I only wished back then that some company would have made a steering wheel controller to go along with the 2600/5200/7800 ports. Does anyone know if a PSX racing wheel controller works with PP on Atari Anthology compilation disc?

I do not know. It would be cool if it worked.
