The Atari 5200 SuperSystem was a decent machine that was pretty much a 400 re-purposed as a game console. Although the software was not directly compatible between the two systems. The wacky joysticks were non-centering analog things that worked great for some games, and not so great for other games that required precise changes in direction. The system would switch to a blank screen when you turned it off to switch cartridges, instead of blasting you with the sound of a static-filled TV display. The cartridges were massive and sales fell way short of its predecessor.
