Atari Is Making A Comeback With The Ataribox

Atari first announced at E3 that it was working on a brand new console this year and last month the company released a teaser of the Ataribox in a 21-second video.

The video game manufacturer hasn’t provided any details regarding the console until today. It seems the console will come in two versions with contemporary elements and here’s a sneak peek of the new Ataribox.

The Ataribox project team said that their objective is to to create a new product that stays true to their heritage while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari. The console will be able to handle classic and current gaming content and also comes with fours USB ports and HDMI output.

Inspired by classic Atari design elements (such as the iconic use of wood, ribbed lines, and raised back); we are creating a smooth design, with ribs that flow seamlessly all around the body of the product, a front panel that can be either wood or glass, a front facing logo, indicator lights that glow through the material, and an array of new ports (HDMI, 4xUSB, SD). We intend to release two editions: a wood edition, and a black/red edition. We know you are hungry for more details; on specs, games, features, pricing, timing etc. We’re not teasing you intentionally; we want to get this right, so we’ve opted to share things step by step as we bring Ataribox to life, and to listen closely to Atari community feedback as we do so.

Atari has withheld information on pricing, official launch dates, game content, or even specifications of the console at the moment.
