Remember when you could have your own Computer System… at home!
Well, you have to remember this computer system and the entertainment it provided to the household.
Oh yes, the Atari Computer System that hooks up to your very own TV.
Many a family bought these, and it was the “way back when” version of the PlayStation system currently on the market.
The original Atari, Inc. founded in 1972 by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney was a pioneer in arcade games, home video game consoles, and home computers. The company’s products, such as Pong and the Atari 2600, helped define the electronic entertainment industry from the 1970s to the mid-1980s.
As of 2004, there were 30 million of these units sold. The media used was ROM cartridge & tape.
