Atari is filing for bankruptcy after 40 years in the video game market. The logo and game titles will be sold off in a move to separate from its French parent company after a 50% dip in share prices over the past year.
Atari, born in 1972 and a gaming pioneer, has kept up with the changes and trends in technology by going mobile and digital with its products. Atari Greatest Hits and Asteroids Gunner are part of their iOS and Android platforms. More games are in the post-bankruptcy plans.
That’s a long way from the days of the Atari 2600. Who hasn’t heard of Space Invaders, Asteroids, Centipede, Pac-Man and Pong?
By the way, some Atari games are worth thousands today!
