End of an Era

Sony has just stopped production of the original PlayStation. It was an 11 year run.

But as Brendan Sinclair points out, this isn't the longest active duty for a home game console. That honor is held by the Atari 2600--which was in production from 1977 to 1991.

And if you knew that, well, don't brag about it.

Shouldn't that be the venerable Atari 2600? Having missed the boat on the original NES by getting the only Atari 7800 ever sold, I believe I am an authority ont his matter heheheh
