Atari 5200 was the second cartridge-based home video game console by Atari.

It was preceded by the Atari 2600 and was succeeded by the Atari 7800.


The legacy of the Atari 5200 remains, even after its heyday. Independent, unlicensed games continue to be produced for the system to this day.

The current license holder of the Atari 5200, Atari, S.A., released several Atari 5200 games as downloadable content for their Atari Vault compilation.
