Today we start a regular column reporting all the news we can find about the upcoming Atari movie. Today we have a great new interview with Nolan Bushnell from cbsnews.com :

They didn’t really understand this was a somewhat different medium at that point, because we weren’t really able to do the kind of graphics that really amplified the IP. You couldn’t put 50 of those engineers in a room and come out with a video game in five days. It was a thing that was a type of art.
