Atari is often best know for it's wildly successful Atari 2600 video game console released in September 1977 by Atari, Inc. which is credited with popularizing the use of microprocessor-based hardware and ROM cartridges containing game code, the Atari 2600 receives credit for making the plug-in concept popular among the game-playing public.

 

The Atari 2600 was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame at The Strong in Rochester, New York in 2007. In 2009, the Atari 2600 was named the second greatest video game console of all time by IGN, who cited its remarkable role as the console behind both the first video game boom and the video game crash of 1983, and called it "the console that our entire industry is built upon."

 

The word "Atari" comes from a Japanese verb meaning "to hit the target"
