Games Consoles CONSOLES

Atari 5200

The Atari 5200 SuperSystem, introduced in 1982, was like the Nintendo Light and a rival to the ColecoVision. I didn't have one but my friend did. It featured games such as Pacman, Frogger, and Q-Bert. It ran on a 16 bit graphics card, off your TV set. It was very popular because it was in colour and had better graphics and game choices then it's predecessors. It was based on the Atari 400 and 800 computers and had the same hardware but the games were not compatible due to various reasons, not least the lack of a keyboard.
