Happy birthday to Pong, as the seminal sports videogame was first released 45 years ago today. Nerdist has a retrospective, calling it "the most important videogame ever." It's easy to see the point, as prior to that any computer games were the province of those with access mainframe computers, but Pong brought them to the masses, ushering in both arcade gaming and home consoles. The Atari brand has bounced around over the years, but the company is still out there, and they have declared today Pong Day. They celebrate by touting a new ATARI Table Pong Project that's expected next year, and going from the sublime to the ridiculous, they also offer a Limited Edition Pong Speaker Hat, which will have to speak for itself, because it leaves us speechless.
