Top Ten Worst Video Game Industry FailsScorpio
The Top Ten
Nintendo was to sign a deal with Atari to make their Famicom get sold in the US. However, Atari discovered Donkey Kong running on a Coleco console. As a result, Atari rejected Nintendo's deal. Nintendo then went at it on their own and released the Famicom in the US as the NES. This revived the industry, and Atari missed out on it. - Scorpio
