Atari 7800 (a7800)

The Atari 7800 is a game console released by Atari in June 1986 (a trial release took place two years earlier). The 7800 was designed to replace the failed Atari 5200 and to regain Atari 's dominance in the video game console market it shared with Nintendo and Sega . In this system , Atari eliminated all the shortcomings of the Atari 5200 : instead of analog joysticks, it had simple digital joysticks, it was almost completely compatible with the Atari 2600 , and it was even cheaper - the starting price was $140.

The 7800 was the first Atari gaming systemdeveloped by an outside company ( General Computer Corporation ; the Atari Lynx and Atari Jaguar were later developed outside the company ). The system was designed to be upgraded to a full-fledged home computer - a keyboard was designed, which also had an expansion port (it was a SIO port from the 8-bit Atari family) for connecting peripherals such as a floppy drive or printer.
