Formerly known as the Atari Video Computer System (Atari VCS), the Atari 2600 was released in 1977, changing the video game landscape forever. With arcade conversions like Space Invaders catching the attention of gamers new and old, the Atari 2600 was an unprecedented hit.
At Retro Sales, we pay homage to this moment of gaming history by having an amazing selection of Atari games and consoles available in our store.
We’ve all heard of Space Invaders, and there’s a reason for that. Though it gripped gamers worldwide in the age of the arcades, it was truly popularised and easily accessible after the launch of the Atari 2600. And the fun didn’t stop there. Today, we recognise a host of iconic games from the system, including:
Raiders of the Lost Ark
The best way to relive those classic memories — or introduce the kids to the start of modern gaming — is to purchase an Atari gaming console and kit yourself out with some classic games!
