All the Video Game Companies are cashing in... except Atari

The Stock Masters - Frank Lara Jr, December 14th, 2007:

"Atari was King in the early 1980's but now with debt and lack of new creative game titles, shares stand at $1.66. Every Game Company stock has been making news and cashing in: Activision, Midway, Take-Two, Nintendo, and even Microsoft.

So why can't the original game maker come back to life? How is it that even late comer Bill Gates and Co. can throw a new game system and make Master Chief more popular than Harry Pitfall?"

The Stock Masters on why Atari is a worthless nobody and has "no hit, no money, and no love from Wall Street." (Atari Classics Evolved, Godzilla: Unleashed, Industry, PSP, Wii)
