Just thought I'd point out that the VCS wasn't "rapidly" renamed to Atari 2600. That didn't happen until the Atari 5200 launched. (And an insistence on supporting the VCS/2600 over the 5200 was one of the things that led to that system's failure.)
Also the 5200 had an electrical fault, in the psu iirc, that set a few houses alight and deaths were involved.
