Atari 2600 (1977)

October 1977 brought us the Atari VCS. It was not dubbed the 2600 officially for a few more years, but was known by its model number CX2600.

The 2600 was not the first system to use interchangeable ROM cartridges for its games and software (that honor belongs to the Fairchild Channel F), but it did popularize them.

It was a wildly popular system from the late 1970's to early 1980's.The system's official production run was from 1977 to 1992. Even today, 2,600 enthusiasts produce their own games for the 1.19MHz wonder.

Atari 400 (1979)

Atari released its first home computers in 1979. The Atari 400 was a member of Atari's 8-bit computer family, which also included the 800 and 1200.

The 400 pictured here was the entry model and it featured less memory, only one cartridge slot, non upgrade-able memory, and the less popular membrane keyboard.

The cheaper and less powerful 400 was pushed as more of a hybrid unit: game console and computer in one.

Magnavox Odyssey 2 (1978)

Released in 1978, the Odyssey 2 was part of the second generation of home video games consoles. The Atari 2600 was also a member.

The Odyssey 2 featured a membrane keyboard which offered no tactile feedback, but was functional. The system featured two standard one-button joysticks. In the first version of the system, these joysticks could be unplugged from the main unit. Later revisions moved to a hard-wired approach.

The games were simple. Not quite as refined as the 2600's better titles, but still fun. The European version (known as the Videopac) enjoyed much more success.
