No. There are far too many hardware differences to even consider it. Apparently, the A8 chipset started out as the next game console but was turned into a computer project early on (by Ray Kassar?).
Was there ever any plan by Atari to try and make the Atari 8-bit computers compatible with existing Atari 2600 software/carts?
The VCS adapter is a (nearly) complete 2600 which is powered by a 5200. It's easy to add 2600 compatibility when you're not using the host machine for anything.
Doesn't the 5200 have a plug-in converter thing-a-ma-bob to play 2600 games? I wonder if it could be hacked?
