Atari 7800 was the third cartridge-based home video game console by Atari.

It was preceded by the Atari 5200 and was succeeded by the Atari XE Gaming System. The latter was based on the Atari 65XE computer.


The legacy of the Atari 7800 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 7800 games as downloadable content in compilations.
