Atari, Inc. was founded by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney in 1972. ATARI is well-known for their arcade games like Pong, Pac-man, Space Invaders, Defender etc as well as for the famous ATARI 2600 home console.

ATARI was leading the home-gaming scene until Nintendo released their NES console. ATARI begun to loose momentum and things took the wrong way for the company since then!

ATARI desperatelly tried getting the top gaming spots back but Nintendo always outsold Atari in both console and game selling. After many years of failures, ATARI declared bankruptcy in2013.

The Comeback

After 20 years, Atari is finally back in the game with and they will soon release their new console called Atari VCS.
Atari VCS will be a Linux-operated console and users will be able to play both the old and new ATARI games.
The most amazing thing about this console is that it will be the first gaming console which can support blockchain games!

ATARI and blockchain

Frédéric Chesnais, the CEO of ATARI was recently interviewed by Amanda Lauren and here are a couple of answers about ATARI and Blockchain gaming

A.L - How has blockchain technology influenced the gaming industry overall?

F.C - Blockchain technology has influenced the gaming industry positively in various ways such as minimizing fraudulent activities by using the crypto-economy, making payment processing cost-effective by offering a decentralized method for it and providing extra security for data stored with blockchain encryption.

A.L - How is blockchain being used specifically for Atari’s games?

F.C - We recently partnered with Animoca Brands to produce and publish blockchain-based versions of our games RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch and Goon Squad. The new titles will feature the integration of non-fungible tokens. The NFTs (non-fungible tokens) use the blockchain to ensure that an item is unique and cannot be copied and will work well with collectible items. For a game like RollerCoaster Tycoon using blockchain, you can own the coasters you create in-game and trade it with other players.

Couldn't agree more my friend. I am not a passionate gamer but I love spending time playing some games every now and then!
