Continues with the sale of Atari in 1984 to Jack Tramiel and his desire to rule the computing world.
Not only will Vol. 2 cover all of Atari Corp. products from 1984, we will again sprinkle some of the companies global advertising, flyers, prototypes, and a dash of historical perspective.
Such as the re-launched 8-Bit line renamed the XE, the introduction of the ground breaking 16-Bit ST computer range, the advanced computers such as the MEGA STE, TT030, Falcon030 and the Transputer Workstation, video game consoles from including the 7800 Pro System, Lynx I/II, all the way to the 64-Bit Jaguar and of course Atari PCs, pocket PCs, calculators and much more.
Mythical tales of enhanced STs, Junior STs, Portable STs and even ST games consoles, there is even an Amiga in here somewhere! We look at unreleased computers (Falcon 040 & Microbox) and video game consoles (Panther, Mirai) and get a complete picture of the Atari products that could have been.
Rare photos, product shots and paperwork, we leave no area of Atari uncovered. Global advertising, flyers, the amazing underground Atari scene, as well as interesting historical facts and figures for you to digest and examine as we go on the second and last volume of our Atari journey.
All orders come with a bundle of goodies!
Limited stock available.
Goodies selection may vary per order.
We Love Atari isn't just another book about Atari, it is a packed visual journey of the company you love. Bursting with products from Arcade machines to Home Computers.
We Love Atari, so we made sure our book represents the best of the company we love. A book you can browse again and again whenever you need your Atari fix!
We listened to all the great feedback and suggestions you sent us from out first print run. Thank you to all our customers who purchased Volume One the first time around.
Volume One has hundreds of images from Pong to the 1200XL Home Computer, representing years of collecting. Some images painstakingly restored from originals over 30-40 years old *Conservative estimate!
Not just another stale history of Atari, We Love Atari is meant to be an exciting visual experience, but we also added some fun facts and quotes as well as enough historical content to understand Atari as a company.
All commercial Arcade releases & official flyers produced by Atari are included. Atari was built on the foundations of their Arcade success and this in turn funded the growth of the company well into the late 1970s.
Thanks to the guys at Retro Video Gamer for reviewing my book. I am humbled at the feedback, and look forward to making Volume Two an even better experience to complement Volume One.
