I want to talk about a console that was released in 1982. The Atari 5200. It was twice as powerful as the Atari 2600 but unlike the 2600, the 5200 failed. The Atari 5200 was doomed for three reasons. 1. When it was released, it had an expensive $269 price tag, 2. The terrible analog joystick and 3. The Video Game Crash of 1983.

The Atari 5200

I want to talk about a console that was released in 1982. The Atari 5200. It was twice as powerful as the Atari 2600 but unlike the 2600, the 5200 failed.

The Atari 5200 was doomed for three reasons. 1. When it was released, it had an expensive $269 price tag, 2. The terrible analog joystick and 3. The Video Game Crash of 1983.

Some people complained because the 5200 was bulky but I don't think that hurt it. Here are screenshots of the Atari 5200 games and the companies who manufactured the games.
