  • Ataribox

    Just saw this on eurogamer. The wood one looks great but dont think i will be buying one. Not really touched my mini nes after a few weeks and although its great on the old nostalgia front, actually playing those old games doesnt really appeal to me. If its cheap enough i will buy one for the collection but would much rather hold out for an original if i come across one.

    Atari has revealed the design for its new console, the Ataribox.
    In a newsletter published online, Atari revealed the sleek design for their first console in over 20 years.
    "Our objective is to create a new product that stays true to our heritage while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari," wrote the Atari Project Team.
    The Ataribox is inspired by the classic Atari consoles, with a trademark wood design, ribbed lines and raised back. The company revealed the console will be available in either a wood or black/red edition.






    Though no specs have been given, we do know there will be an SD slot, HDMI output and four USB ports.
    "As you can guess, those ports suggest modern internal specs. It also means that while we will be delivering classic gaming content, we will also be delivering current gaming content," the team wrote in the newsletter.
    Could this suggest that, alongside classic games, we could be getting new titles as well? Maybe even third-party? It's all very speculative at the moment.
    There is currently no word on pricing, features, games or a release date. Atari has said they are purposely sharing details step by step because they "want to get this right" and are keen to respond to feedback from the community.

        Wouldn't bother. We tend to look at the past with many things with rose tinted glasses.

        Having said that, I downloaded bubble bobble on the PS4 recently to play with my boy and surprisingly really enjoyed it. I also just downloaded double dragon so it will be interesting to see what I think of that 30 years on.

        They also have moon cresta....

          Have to say having played some of the old atari 2600 titles on the 360 - in that arcade thing which had some cool arcade games.. the 2600 games have not aged so well.. IMHO

            i would of liked to see some photos of the console rather than CAD images, but, i guess they are quite far off making it yet.

            personally i think it would be really cool if you could download [for a price] all of Atari's back catalogue as i would mainly be interested in Lynx games catalogue which i haven't played in years.

            plus of course it would have to have Defender 2000 and Tempest 2000 [both at running 60fps]
