Atari Story -Joystick junkie stories

Founded in the United States in 1972 by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney, Atari could be credited with starting the video arcade industry with the seminal PONG.

The home version of PONG, which connected to a television set, was one of the first video game consoles. Atari Inc. was originally called Syzygy, an astronomical term.
However, as there already existed at least one company with that name (accounts varying as to whether it was a candle company or roofing company), Bushnell wrote down several words from the game Go, eventually choosing Atari, which often is translated as "to inform an opposing player that he or she is in danger" [1], but really means only "[this particular stone] can be taken by the opponent"; if spoken towards the opponent at all this is outdated courtesy, not "check!", which means a serious threat to the King in chess. Go has no such piece. The name "Atari" is arguably also rather more memorable in terms of spelling and pronunciation for most markets.
