How much did Atari cost?

Recommended Posts

I believe it was like $300. I was 7 when it came out and can't remember if I got one right away, or in 1978. No idea in 1981, probably $200.

Around $575.00! I just think how much my parents paid for that crappy Pac Man, and we were not rich. These systems were not cheap back in the day either.

Yes, however the general population had more disposable income during this time period and this was before the era of disposable electronics and Chinese production. Once it changed the console was much more affordable.

We got ours on release day. Don't recall the exact price, but it was probably 179 - 249. Maybe there was discount for the first units the first day.
