This is my  All Black  "Darth Vader" 1982`s Atari 2600
The Atari 2600 is a video game console released in October 1977 by Atari, Inc. It is credited with popularizing the use of microprocessor-based hardware and cartridges containing game code, instead of having non-microprocessor dedicated hardware with all games built in. The first game console to use this format was the Fairchild Channel F; however, the Atari 2600 receives credit for making the plug-in concept popular among the game-playing public. The console was originally sold as the Atari VCS, for Video Computer System. Following the release of the Atari 5200, in 1982, the VCS was renamed "Atari 2600", after the unit's Atari part number, CX2600. The 2600 was typically bundled with two joystick controllers, a conjoined pair of paddle controllers, and a cartridge game—initially Combat and later Pac-Man. The Atari 2600 was wildly successful, and during much of the 1980s, "Atari" was a synonym for this model in mainstream media and, by extension, for video games in general. The Atari 2600 was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame at The Strong in Rochester, New York in 2007. In 2009, the Atari 2600 was named the second greatest video game console of all time by IGN, who cited its remarkable role as the console behind both the first video game boom and the video game crash of 1983, and called it "the console that our entire industry is built upon. - Wikipedia

The Real Thing - 1977
Se você era um menino ou menina nos anos 80, com certeza você teve ou desejou ter um Atari 2600! (eu ainda tenho o meu, mas não tenho mais cartuchos ou joysticks). Zaxxon, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Miss Pac-man, tudo em cartuchos, com imagens bem toscas, sem save games ou enredos elaborados, mas não havia nada antes para se comparar e quem tinha um era muito sortudo mesmo!

Atari 2600 foi um video game projetado por Jay Miner e lançado em 1977 nos Estados Unidos e em 1983 no Brasil. Considerado um símbolo cultural dos anos 80, foi um fenômeno de vendas no Brasil entre os anos de 1984 a 1986 e seus jogos permanecem na memória de muitos que viveram a juventude nesta época. - Wikipedia
