Atari was originally founded on June 28, 1972 by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney. The company originally developed arcade video games, video computer systems (e.g., The 2600), and games. Later, in 1984 Atari became the Atari Corporation who released the Atari Computer (e.g., Atari 1040ST) and game console. Atari later became a division of Hasbro, which changed hands again when Infogrames took over Hasbro Interactive. Today, Atari is known as ATARI, SA.
