                               Atari 2600 Teardown

                                     Step 1 -
                                        Atari 2600, with AC adapter and iconic joystick
                                        controller.
                                        Does the 2600 have a hardwood finish? You are
                                        correct sir!
                                              Video game consoles these days may not have a
                                              sense of home decor, but some computer
                                              companies still believe in the aesthetics of wood
                                              paneling.
                                       At its release, the 2600 sold for $199. In today's coin,
                                       that's $696. In comparison, the launch model of
                                       PlayStation 3 cost only $599. Prices are coming down!
                                       As soon as users figured out that the Atari 2600 could
                                       play more games than just Pong, the 2600 became
                                       massively successful. It went from selling 250,000
                                       consoles in 1977 to 1 million units in 1979.


                                     Step 2
                                       From its release in 1977 until 1983, the Atari 2600 was
                                       officially called the Video Computer System, in
                                       response to Fairchild Semiconductor's Video
                                       Entertainment System. The console was later renamed
                                       after its model number, CX2600.
                                       Instead of following the trend of building a limited
                                       number of games into the system like the Magnavox
                                       Odyssey 100, the Atari 2600 used removable cartridges
                                       to store games like Space invaders, Pac-Man and
                                       Pitfall!
                                       Each player could select the difficulty of the game they
                                       were playing by simply flipping a switch from "A" to "B".
                                       Which one was harder is anyone's guess.
