Atari Age was a magazine distributed to Atari Club members from 1982 until 1984. It was published by The Atari Club Inc., a subsidiary of Atari, Inc.[1]

History[edit]

Created in 1982, Atari Age was given to all Atari Club members as a perk for joining the club. Upon paying the US$1 club membership fee, the member would also receive a year's subscription to Atari Age. The magazine regularly featured content related to all things Atari. This included coverage of Atari-related news, coverage of Atari-related events, exclusive looks at new products from Atari, technical articles, exclusive offers to Atari Club members, and a full catalog of Atari-related merchandise and paraphernalia.[2]

Atari Age ceased publication in 1984, after Warner Communications sold the consumer division of Atari to Jack Tramiel.

AtariAge (website)[edit]

AtariAge is also a website devoted to all things Atari. It was founded in 1998 by Alex Bilstein and Albert Yarusso and is well known for selling homebrew software for Atari video game systems, some of which have been included in official video game compilations such as Activision Anthology. The site also houses a discussion forum and a comprehensive, searchable database of Atari video games, including manuals, packaging art, estimated rarity, screenshots, reviews, and other details, as well as an Atari Age magazine archive.
