The Atari 7800 was released in 1986 to compete with the NES and the Sega Master System.  It was to late for the once powerful Atari Corp. The really cool thing about this system, is that it is compatible with all 2600 games.   The funny thing about all of these Atari systems is that they came out pretty close to one another.  This may account for the huge lull in video game sales back in the mid-'80s until the original Nintendo  came out.  An interesting story is that Nintendo came to Atari with their 8-bit Famicom system and the deal was botched at the last minute by Atari.  So instead of the Nintendo 8-bit from Atari, gamers were able to play games on the good, old 7800.  The 7800 was compatible with the 2600 (but not the 5200) which was the main reason why the 5200 didn't succeed.  Most of the games were similar to the NES but they didn't have as many colors and nothing really came close to Super Mario Bros.  After the video game crash at the end of '83 Atari was left to single-handedly compete with the NES in 1985.  Guess what happened.
