Here’s Atari’s Booth from E3 Last Week…

While it may not have the pomp and pazzaz of Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo’s booths at this years Electronic Entertainment Expo, this is still a very nice trip down memory lane into video game history in an environment that showcases the now, the new, the cutting edge and the future of the industry.  For the uninitiated, that system is the Atari 800, part of a series of 8-bit home computers introduced by Atari, Inc. in 1979 and manufactured until 1992. All of the Atari 8-bit computers are based on the MOS Technology 6502 CPU that runs at 1.79 MHz, which was approximately double the speed of similar designs, and they were the first home computers that were designed with custom co-processor chips.
