Well, I'm not sure if the computer 8-bit line counts but I would think the XEGs would count as a console since it was marketed as a games console that also happened to have a keyboard that attached to it. Hence why it came with the light gun and the two games upon release.

Having said that, I own all the consoles listed but do not own a XEGs and only own an 800xl and 130xe for the computer 8-bit line.

Should the VCS be considered? I mean yes... it is a console and yes it was released by Atari, but it isn't the same Atari.

I would suggest that the modern VCS should be considered in the same way that products developed and/or released under Tramiel's Atari Corporation should be considered.

I should have been more specific with the header.

These are what I consider to be ATARI's retro consoles, as in they were specifically marketed as such.

The XEG was considered a computer in the U.K because of the way it was marketed.

I do consider the VCS to be an ATARI console, but it's current.

It's interesting to see the most popular outside of the 2600.

The 7800 for example always has decent numbers in polls.

Post whatever you consider relevant if the option is unavailable.
