ATARI THE 2600 ERA

>The popularity of the Atari 2600 VCS is what
really began the video game movement.
Developed by Atari and led by Nolan Bushnell, the Atari 2600 was released
in 1977 after Atari merged with Warner Communications.


But the story really begins in 1975 when Atari sold about 150,000 Pong units
through the Sears sporting goods department.
This deal generated millions in profits for Atari. Money they would put to use
developing the next big thing: The Atari Video Computer System,
later renamed the Atari 2600.
(Imagine why Sears marketed their own version of the 2600 and games!)
Even after the 2600 was launched in 1977, it wasn’t a huge success.
It took the conversion of a phenomenal arcade game, Space Invaders,
to really convince kids that they needed one.

-EMULATORS :

-STELLA :
-The Atari 2600 Video Computer System (VCS), introduced in 1977,
was the most popular home video game system of the early 1980’s.
Now you can enjoy all of your favorite Atari 2600 games on your PC
thanks to Stella!
Stella is a multi-platform Atari 2600 VCS emulator released
under the GNU General Public License (GPL). Stella was originally developed
for Linux by Bradford W. Mott, however, since its original release
several people have joined the development team to port Stella to
other operating systems such as AcornOS, AmigaOS, DOS, FreeBSD, IRIX,
Linux, OS/2, MacOS, Unix, and Windows.
The development team is working hard to perfect the emulator
and we hope you enjoy our effort.
On this site you’ll find information about downloading, installing, using,
and enhancing Stella.
You’ll also find useful information about the Atari 2600 and emulation.
