Atari 7800 ProSystem (1987 – 1992)

The Atari 7800 ProSystem was a third-generation video game console planned for release in 1984, but introduced in 1986 and available in Europe in 1987. It replaced the Atari 5200 SuperSystem.

It was backward-compatible with Atari 2600 game cartridges (unlike the Atari 5200 initially), and was designed to provide a more arcade-like experience with better graphics.

Atari struggled to get developers to create versions of popular arcade games for the system due to restrictions placed on developers creating software for the more popular Nintendo Entertainment System. Fewer than 100 titles were developed specifically for the 7800.

The Atari 7800, along with several other Atari game consoles, was discontinued at the beginning of 1992.
