ATARI GS ?
AFAIK there was never a system named like that - just the XE.
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.
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.
Having never seen one in captivity let alone in the wild, I really can't
comment much past this.
Hope this helps,
