Left to right: North American and European Atari 7800 models

The Atari 7800 is a 8-bit home video game console developed by Atari Corporation and designed by General Computer Corporation, released in North America first on May 1986.[1][2][3][4][5] It was the third programmable console developed under the Atari brand. The following list contains all of the games released for the 7800.

First test marketed by Atari, Inc. in southern California on June 1984 following an announcement at that year's SCES, the 7800 was designed to replace the unsuccessful Atari 5200 and re-establish Atari's market supremacy against Nintendo and Sega, being fully backward-compatible with the Atari 2600 and affordably priced at US$140.[6][7][8][citation needed] However, 7800 systems manufactured during original production run languished on warehouse shelves until its re-introduction on May 1986 at $79.95, after additional negotiations with GCC concluded and selling 100,000 consoles in North America by the end of 1986, less than its competitors (Nintendo Entertainment System and Master System).[1][9][10][11] The platform was ultimately discontinued by Atari on January 1, 1992 and its unknown how many 7800 units were sold in total during its lifetime.[12] Also listed are the unlicensed aftermarket (homebrew) and unreleased (cancelled) titles.
