    Not quite game over for Atari, yet

    Atari has entered Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection so it can work out how to deal with its debt.

    Will it be missed? There's more to the company than the abomination that was E.T. for the Atari 2600, surely?

    It's not been the same company for a long time but they'll still be missed. I'll never forget the first time I saw Pong as a bright eyed 6 year old, one of the two things that eventually led to my programming carreer.

    I still have my 2600 and other than the PSU it's still 100% original and still working. I pull it out of the cupboard once a year or so for some childhood nostalgia with my mates. It's also useful for showing children who think owning a PS2 is retro what real retro games are.
