The Atari 7800, also known as the Atari 7800 ProSystem, was the third cartridge-based home video game console by Atari.

Legacy

The legacy of the Atari 7800 remains, even after its heyday. Independent, unlicensed games continue to be produced for the system to this day.

The current license holder of the system, Atari, S.A., has capitalized on the system's continuing popularity with the original Atari Flashback. Although it contained Nintendo Entertainment System versions of the included games, it resembled an Atari 7800 console and the controllers were modeled on Atari 7800 controllers.
