Atari XE Game System


The Atari XE Game System aka XEGS was an example of Atari’s slip personality. Was it a computer or a game system, or both. Atari seemed to continue to struggle with defining their products, and this is what you get when you can’t make up your mind. A game system with a keyboard, and the onboard firmware was Missile Command! Talk about an identity crises. But it sure looked cool. I paid $20 for this system but the power supply is dead.
