The Atari XEGS, or to give it its full name, the Atari XE Video Game System, was essentially an Atari 65XE Home Computer in a console case. You could plug a keyboard in, and it boots into BASIC.

32 Game cartridges were released in XEGS packaging, though these could also run on Atari's 8-bit computers, and the XEGS could also run most Atari 8-bit cartridges.
