I put 5-9, but I'm not entirely sure. I was born in 74, and I know I played it before I started kindergarten, but it came out in 77, so I couldn't have been less than 3 years old... anyway... it was around then.

The first 2600 game I remember seeing and playing was Space Invaders at JCPenney. Since that came out in 80, I was probably 9.

I was 6 when the console came out, but I don't think I played it until I was 7 at my friends house in the neighborhood. I did play the home dedicated PONG console well before that however, which they also had. 

 

My family actually never had a 2600..but we got on the 8 bit computers starting with the 400 in 1979 or so and then the 800XL in 82.
