Atari 5200

The Atari 5200 SuperSystem, or simply Atari 5200, is a home video game console introduced in 1982 by Atari, Inc. as a higher-end complement for the popular Atari Video Computer System. The VCS was renamed the Atari 2600 at the time of the 5200’s launch. The 5200 was created to compete with the Intellivision but wound up a direct competitor of the ColecoVision shortly after its release.
