Atari and the Big 4-0

Posted by | June 30, 2012

Some game companies have a legacy, being around longer than others, walking taller than others. Few can match the history of Atari, a company that’s still ticking after 40 years in the business. Essentially, everything we know about gaming comes from Atari, or was spawned by someone who cut their teeth under the dim lights of Atari’s code dungeon. Sadly, the Atari of the modern age is just another name in a surging storm of game companies. What of Atari’s history, and what is this venerable company doing to stay relevant 40 years later? USA Today has the story.
