While Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 cost Atari, Inc. a lot of money due to unsold cartridges, it ironically made programmer Tod Frye very rich. In return for releasing Pac-Man in the 'inferior' state he felt it was in, Frye insisted he be given fifty cents for every cartridge sold. Because of the high amount of initial sales, Frye earned a lot of money as a result.
