The Atari VCS(Video Computer System) was a very popular home video game system released by Atari in 1977.
We received a 6-switch model and a few game cartridges as a Family Christmas Gift one year(I believe it was in 1979 as Atari revised
the 2600 to a 4-switch model in 1980). The VCS was renamed 2600 in 1982, but I'll always remember it as the VCS.
