Astrocade - The Bally Home Arcade, released just after the Atari 2600, was far ahead of its time. It had a keyboard, great joysticks, and superior graphics (at the time). The games played much better than the ones for other systems, but unfortunately the Bally Arcade did not outlast it competitors. The system even had it's own programming language, Bally Basic, that allowed you to create and save programs. Bally sold out to Astrovision in the later years, who renamed the system to Astrocade.
