The Atari 7800 is a video game console re-released by Atari in January 1986. The original release had occurred two years earlier - the 7800 had originally been designed to replace the Atari 5200 in 1984, but was temporarily shelved due to the sale of the company after the video game crash of 1983.
In January 1986, the 7800 was again released and would compete that year with the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega Master System. It was backward compatible with the Atari 2600 and was extremely affordable at a price of just $140.
