Title: The History of the Atari 5200
Post by: TrekMD on September 04, 2018, 00:16:36 AM
This is a nice video from ReplayRetro looking at the Atari 5200 console.  The video goes into the history of the system and also does a bit of a review of the system and a couple of games.  Worth watching if you're interested in the system.

There's no denying that the Atari VCS left a huge mark on video game history and it's probably one of the most important consoles of all time, but with such a huge amount to live up to how could Atari ever follow it up? This is the story of the ill fated Atari 5200, a console doomed to live in the shadow of its predecessors success.

Interesting view of the 5200. It is a really good system if given a fair chance. Never understood why the 5200 Pac Man included intermissions while the Atari computer port did not.
