Ever wondered what happened to Atari, the godfather of all videogame producers?
It appears that the company that gave the world Pac-Man, Gauntlet and Asteroids is alive and well and sponsoring top Turkish football team, Fenerbahce.
The company went bust - not once, but twice, explains Atari historian, Chris Green, a memorable achievement for a once strong brand. The first failure came in the early 90s, when the bottom fell out of the PC market."Atari folded around the same time as Commodore and for similar reasons," said Green.
"But the brand was salvaged and re-launched in the mid-90s with the Jaguar and Lynx game console products, which both failed in the videogame market as hardware from vendors such as Sega and Namco prevailed."
The brand was then acquired by Manchester-based French-owned gaming firm, Infogrames, which has taken the firm back to its roots, vending big box arcade machines and releasing updated versions of the classic Atari games.
And in Turkey, it seems, this is a particularly popular move.
