So the Atari is to be said that it was made in Michigan in 1972 technically about five years older than Star Wars. It came out and instantly became a big hit. It was the biggest game for around 20 years. The PlayStation and the Xbox took over around 1991. If it weren't for the Atari the idea for the PlayStation and Xbox wouldn't even exist. The Atari started to go down and not be as popular in 1991 and is now making a come back.
