They’ve been building to this anniversary for some time. Back in February, they announced the Pong Indie Developer Challenge, a contest where developers could submit their own re-inventions of the classic title. Though not without controversey, the contest did received a number of submissions, eventually announcing the winners in August.
More recently, Atari celebrated the 40th anniversary by creating a huge Pong game on the side of a building in Kansas City (video above).
Happy birthday, Pong!
