Atari 2600 game console - The Atari 2600 is a video game console released in October 1977 by Atari. In 2009, the 2600 was named the second greatest video game console of all time by IGN. Photo from wikipedia .


We've put together a collection showcasing the evolution of the console. Our journey starts in the seventies, when the very first Pong console was released. The eighties brought us the MB Vectrex and Colecovision, and we continue on through the nineties with consoles such as the SNK Neo Geo and the classic Nintendo SNES. You can play games like Golden Axe Warrior, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Mortal Kombat or Michael Jackson's Moonwalker, just to name a few. We settle down in the present with Sony's Playstation 3, which has been updated with the latest firmware. In combination with our 55 inch screen, it's the ideal console to play 3D games on. Marvel at the great designs and vintage games, but most of all: have fun playing them.
