Sure was: the Atari XE _G_ame _S_ystem. Had (IIRC)
Missile Command in the
built-in ROM and had a slot for others... if you added a keyboard, drive,
and all the knick-knacks, you could turn it into a regular XE.
OK, same thing - I was strictly refering to the 'official'
naming (branding) of the systems - keeping track of the
zillion names they used back than is a task of its own.
Personally, I'm of the opinion of "why buy a
car and weld on it a month to
turn it into a truck... just buy a truck." ===> why buy a game to have to
buy a bunch of stuff to turn it into a useful computer... just buy a computer.
Same with me - but as we have seen in the past the strategy was
successfull (All you need is a C64 and _maybe_ a datasette ...
just to lure them in and buy later on disk drives, and add-ons
until the system cost doubble the bucks of an A2 (clone) with
the same amount of beef :).
