Remember Pong?

Remember Pong? In 1975 it sold 150,000 units and was the first successful commercial game. On 29th November 1972 Pong was released onto the market by Atari and was the first game we saw on a computer screen in social settings in Australia and here it was often referred to as Pub Pong because the machines were usually found in the lounge bar of a pub and it was creating a lot of interest and fun. If you still want to play it or you want to find out what the fuss was all about back then , go to the Pong site. I have to thank @NotableHistory on Twitter for tweeting about Pong yesterday. This was a game for everyone. It was a very social game. We seem to have lost that aspect and strength of gaming as the years have passed and gaming has become a multi billion dollar industry. Maybe everyone played Pong because there were no other choices at the time.
