Atari was a Silicon Valley game company started in 1972. As of 2007, it is owned by Atari Interactive, a subsidiary of the French game company. The history is on Wikipedia. Atari was a pioneer in arcade games, home video units that attached to your TV . The Atari 2600 and PONG helped define the game and home video entertainment market . You can still see the brand name on video games. If you have a working Atari 2600 -- see what the going price is on Ebay , that should let you know if it is worth anything to a collector.

That Atari was the second video game my dad bought. In the late 1970s he bought a Magnavox Oddessy (I don't know if I spelled that correctly). Everyone was amazed at that dot on the screen.
