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] The magazine was based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[2]

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.[3]

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

In 1998 the magazine name was co-opted for Atari enthusiast site "atariage.com". It is unrelated to the original publication.
