The atari 2600 is like, really really old

Well here’s one I was thinking about recently. The first successful video game system, the Atari 2600, only has 128 bytes of ram. To give an idea how little memory that actually is if you took all the memory from every 2600 ever sold(about 30 million) and put it all together you’d end up with about 3.5 GB of RAM. (IE less than what alot of us on this board have in our PC’s right now.)

Cacildo´s note: I had this exact same model of Atari 2600, with the wood detail. It was beautiful and the box had some pictures of games i didnt had and happy 80´s people playing em… it was amazing.
