Today I was reading trivia on the Internet, as I often do, and I came across an interesting bit of videogame history. In the early 80s, a group of programmers formed a company and began programming games for the Atari 2600. Atari sued them for doing this and lost. That company was called Activision. Isn't that amazing? Today console manufacturers will do anything to get third party developers on board. In 1982, they sued them for doing so. What a complete reversal.
