Atari XE GS Console

Atari XE GSXE GS games carts cartridgesReleased in 1987 the Atari XE GS (Game System) was the console version of the Atari 65XE micro and the company's final 8-bit offering. The Atari XE GS -as was the trend with anything released during the NES era- failed to make an impression, even though it did try to bridge the console home-computer gap by offering a keyboard and a BASIC compiler. Find out more about it here, here and here.

For an almost complete (lacking a few cables and controllers, mind) XE GS with 4 games, manuals and keyboard, do try this Atari XE GS eBay auction. Seller ships to US, Canada, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. Though I really can't be sure on XE GS prices, the general consensus is that the average console sells for 60$/40 euros.
