Dinosaur Sighting: The Atari 2600 Video Computer System

TechRepublic reports: "Video games are a multi-million dollar business these days. But this booming industry owes much of its current success to a simple little console first sold in October 1977 called the Atari 2600 Video Computer System. By today's standards, Atari games are not much to look at, but their simple game play is still addictive, especially when nostalgia for this dinosaur gaming console kicks in."

Here is another TechRepublic Photo Gallery, and this time they're covering the Atari 2600. This was the first game console I ever owned.

By todays standards, wrist watches are more powerful then this device.
