About Atari Game System
They are not as complex as modern video games are, but the games introduced on the first Atari game systems are true classics from the dawn of an era. The Atari 2600, also called the Video Component System, or VCS, arrived in 1977. It comes with two joysticks, two paddles, and a cartridge game. It is part of the National Toy Hall of Fame, and it is still popular for amazing games such as Pac-Man, Pong, Asteroids, Centipede, and more. Many of these were originally Atari arcade games. The company discontinued the Atari 2600 system in 1983, before introducing the 5200 shortly thereafter. It has a numbered keypad, a steering wheel, and ports for four joysticks. The internal hardware was almost identical to Atari's early computers. The Atari 7800 console, released in 1985, also lets you play games from the 2600. Even though the 7800 went by the wayside in 1993 as the last of a generation, many companies still make games for all three systems. Thanks to the vast inventory on eBay, you can choose from a wide selection of Atari game systems for you and your family to enjoy when you need a break from today's violent graphics-driven games.
