Atari 5200, also known as Atari 5200 SuperSystem is an 8-bit console of the second generation. Its development and production was held by the Atari Company. The release has been particularly expected after the popular previous model, called Atari 2600. The main purpose of creation was not only a certain position on the market of the gaming industry, but also competition with Mattel Intellivision. However, the release of the console showed that Atari will have to compete with ColecoVision.
Atari also offered a completely new controller with analog joystick, two fire buttons, numeric keypad and buttons start, pause and restart. One of the innovations that has been proposed by the company was a device called “TV switchbox”, which made it possible to connect the console to a TV and the TV antenna signal would be immediately switched to the console signal during its activation. Prior to that, users had to switch it manually.
