Thanks
  9. Hi Everyone There was a lot of good points made. The systems were all made in the 1980s and everyone of these systems had their good points and downfalls. What it really does come down to is what games you really want. There were games on the NES and they were only on that system. Then the Atari 7800 had games that could be only found on it. Of course there is quite a few games that the Sega Master System only had. So it really the games and at the time these came out everyone looked at the games and not the hardware specifications. I have all 3 systems and I think they all have games that make them stand out. It the Memory of Playing these with your kids and grand kids that will make them great. Yes I am that old.
  10. Hi Everyone I know this is a very late reply. I was around in the 1960s and 1970s. My father worked for atari in the 1970s-1980s, and I went to work with him a lot just to see what was being done. I have read every post and I have all the atari consoles as well one of the first releases of the NES as well the Sega master System. I always wanted to know who had the best system made, but what I figure out was over the time who wanted to invest the time into programming games the push the limits of the hardware. The Atari 7800 had the hard ware to do 320 pixels and that out did the NES and the Sega master system. The sound chip on the 7800 would be great with the pokey chip in the cartridges. This put the Atari over the top with graphics and sound. The NES and Sega master system both had the same screen graphic resolution Now the Sega Master system only had a faster clock speed CPU that was a NEC chip that ran at 4Mhz while it was a clone of the Zilog Z80 chip that ran at 3.58Mhz With the Atari 7800 and NES the 6502 chips only ran around 1.79Mhz in clock speed. The other difference was that both the Atari 7800 and NES had way less on board memory The Sega master System had 8K of on board memory with 16K of Graphics memory. Also Sega released 4Mbyte and 8 Mbyte Rom chips for their games. This still did not help them to over come Nintendo sales in consoles or games even with all their efforts. Between Atari,NES, and the Sega Master System. They all had games that made them shine over the other systems. It come down to the user what games do you like and what system shows them off the best. The Atari 7800 could have out done both the NES and Sega master System in one way. Atari could have used the Pokey chip in all their 7800 games and tried pushing all the games using only the higher resolution of 320 pixels in mode 8. If I recall this is the correct graphics mode for this system. Yes Nintendo did lock up the market but even Sega release 341 games in all and only 114 of them being american releases. Most of the European games will run on the american consoles which means people in the US can play eurpean releases. Now the color may be slightly off but they do work. I really wish that Atari would have hired a larger amount of people to make games for the 7800. This meaning you would have not got the same games as Nintendo had out. I am talking about game developing in the USA and Nintendo would of had no rights or saying over. In other words America would of had their own game market and software writers. This is one reason why the Atari 2600 did so well. We deigning and writing software no one else had anywhere. I grew up in this mess and saw the breakdown of Atari prior to 1984. In late 1983 is when things started to change in Atari. My dad Quit Atari because of all this mess. He still kept in contact with members of the Atari team just to see what was going on during the developing of future programs and equipment. Anyway if you want to compare sales then Nintendo won. If you want to compare hardware Sega had only a faster CPU and on board memory and graphics memory. If you are into Graphic Resolution on the screen Then the Atari 7800 will beat out both the NES and Sega Mater Sytstem. The Atari 7800 may have a slower cpu but the Memory could be expanded in the cartridge as well the sound chip could also be place in to cartridge. Now you have System that has great sound and Graphics . The CPU speed probably would have gone not notice with good programming skills. Anyways all the system have their +++++ and - - - - - . It just which one you like over the other I just have them all and get the games that show off the best of each system has to offer Thanks
  11.

  13. Hi Everyone Just wanted to add this to help on Serial numbers. When Atari First Released their Atari pong units they were released under Tele game and sold by Sears. Then later the name was just Atari pong, I have one with the serial number A60186 Tele games Atari pong sold under sears Ok now look at a Atari Pong Serial number 26789 D Now Atari did not want to over cross Serial number when the Atari 2600 or known as the VCS at first. So if you have a Heavy Sixer with a Serial number ending with the letter D at the end. This would be the earliest one to be found. Most have an E after the serial number on the early units we have seen, Take a look at those Early Sears heavy Sixer units because Atari could have released them under Sears before Using their name. Still all Sears sold Tele game units still have the name Atari on the label. Lets see if we can find the oldest VCS heavy sixer and it could have been sold under Sears First. Thanks
  14. Ok Click on this to go to the list of system serial numbers . It will be my name next to the list and at this point the last post on the thread at this point. Just look for my name and you should see the long list of serial numbers. http://atariage.com/forums/topic/271453-heavy-sixer-serial-number-thread/page-45?do=findComment&comment=3916966 Thanks ​ ​
