Atari 7800

1986 - 3rd generation system

The Atari 7800 is a home video game console released by Atari in 1986. It was designed to be a successor to the Atari 2600, and it was capable of delivering improved graphics and sound compared to its predecessor. The 7800 used a 6502C processor and had a built-in joystick port, which allowed for easier connectivity with a variety of controllers. It was compatible with a large library of games, including both Atari 2600 games and a number of new games developed specifically for the 7800. The 7800 was well received by players and critics, but it faced intense competition from other home video game consoles and suffered from a lack of support from third-party game developers. Despite these challenges, the 7800 had a loyal following and is remembered for its high-quality games, ease of use, and innovative hardware design. Today, the 7800 is considered a classic piece of gaming history and is sought after by collectors and retro gaming enthusiasts.
