Atari Teams With Digital Eclipse for 50th Anniversary Retro Collection

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Pong appearing at a local bar near Atari headquarters and breaking down repeatedly because the coin mechanism was too full of quarters. It wasn’t the first video game, but it was the one that broke the floodgates and created the gaming industry as we know it today. The current Atari doesn’t have a large connection to the innovative company of the past, but they have brought on the archival specialists at Digital Eclipse¬†to create a 90-game collection that will let players everywhere experience the full history of gaming’s first first-party publisher.
