Atari 5200 - Following the success of the 2600 VCS, Atari came out with the 5200 SuperSystem in Fall of 1982. It was basically an Atari 400/800 computer turned into a video game system, saving Atari development resources and allowing for easy porting of games from their computer line. The main stickler with the new system was the non, self-centering analog joysticks, which were a boon or some games, but just plain horrible for most others. The original Atari 5200 system had four joystick ports, which was quickly replace by a 2-port model that also had a better RF television setup. Many good games were produced for the Atari 5200, the vast majority of those being Arcade translations. However, the death of the video game market spelled doom for the 5200, which did not survive this time. It is still a great system to collect for though, with many great games!
