TCW Podcast Episode 047 - Vestiges of Atari


In our fourth and final episode investigating the rise and fall of the original Atari we delve into the factors that caused the fall of Atari.  We cover the lead up to and tipping point of the variety of factors that lead to the crash.  No one entity can take the blame for it.  The major factors including distribution, overzealous sales forecasts, and  Warner interference came to a head by the end of 1982 leading to the fracturing of the company a year and a half later.
