Atari 7800 (the full name is Atari 7800 ProSystem) is a home video game console of the third generation, release by Atari Corporation in January 1986. The main objective is to repeat the success of Atari 2600, since the Atari 5200 was not so successful as its predecessor. Atari 7800 console was bundled with a standard joystic (instead of analog) and was compatible with games developed for the Atari 2600, without requiring additional adapters. In addition, it had a rather low starting price of $140. However, Atari 7800 could not compete with the dominant company on the market Nintendo Entretainment System (NES), which appeared on time and satisfied the needs of the public.
Despite some difficulties, Atari 7800 was ranked 17th in the list of the best gaming video consoles of all time, according to IGN in 2009. Especially for 7800 model has been developed a number of games, among which were the Crossbow, Alien Brigade and others.
