The Tumultuous History of Tengen

Justin Baker, VGTODAY writes:

"Atari’s history could put most rock stars to shame: rises, falls, bankruptcies, court cases, and even an urban myth about stolen treasure. The early eighties weren’t kind to the video game industry, and Atari was in a tight spot when the market took a dive in 1984. Atari games were everywhere, and the market was totally saturated; even Quaker Oats had a game sitting on store shelves. This quality control mistake is what most people largely attribute the crash to, and it was a mistake that Nintendo was going to be sure they didn’t repeat with the North American release of the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985."

The story is too old to be commented.
