The Atari 2800 was the Japanese version of the Atari 2600. Its case was redesigned and had four controller ports, rather than the two on the American model. It also came with a new controller that could function both as a joystick and a paddle. It never gained popularity in Japan, because the Nintendo Famicon (known as the NES in America) which was release around the same time, dominated the Japanese gaming market.
