1001 Video Games

The Arcade version of Paperboy appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


The cover for the Xbox LIVE Arcade version of the game is actually taken from the earlier Nintendo 64 game in the series, but with some things removed.


Elite's home computer versions sold more copies when re-released on the Encore budget label than they did when released at full price.
