Gaming Console
    (1982-1984)
    Released by Atari
    Popular games include 'Pitfall II,' 'Pac Man,' 'RealSports Baseball' and 'Jungle Hunt'
    In a major gaff, they didn't make it compatible with the previous Atari 2600. This left out a large pre-existing game library.
    An adapter, sold separately, was released, and it needed to be purchased in order to play old Atari games.
    The gaming market crashed in 1983 and the system floundered when the Atari CEO quit to become a motivational speaker.
    It was the Atari 400 computer without the keyboard.
    They loaded the joysticks with too many 'futuristic' features and gutted the springs, making them frustrating to operate.
    A lot of money went to developing games and technology for the previous Atari 2600, leaving it under-developed by Atari.
    It was the first system to eliminate the fuzzy black-and-white screen when the game wasn't in the system.
    It has had a resurgence in popularity among vintage gamers.
    Though very small, it had a strong library of good games.
    It was technologically advanced for its time and maintained a low selling price.
