Don't watch TV tonight. Play it!

THE ATARI VIDEO COMPUTER SYSTEM

We're the games you play on your own TV set. We're the Atari Video Computer System. (Remember "Pong"? Well, that was just the beginning.)

Atari is now a sophisticated, computerized programmable unit that hooks up to your television in a matter of seconds.

Atari features a greater selection (20 different Game Program cartridges, over 1300 game variations and options—and with many more to come!). We're sport games. We're mind games. We educate. We entertain. We can be played by one player (against the computer), two players, three or four.

We're the system that's especially designed to change colors to protect and safeguard your TV tube from any damage. We offer crisper colors (when played, of course, on a color TV). We pride ourselves in truer-to-life sound effects, which play through your own TV's sound system.

We're Atari. And if someone in your family hasn't asked for us yet, get ready. They're going to.
