First Images Of The Ataribox Revealed

Modern and classic mix.

A little while ago Atari confirmed it was working on a new console, with the machine being called the Ataribox. Today Atari has revealed the first images for the console, and it does look very sleek. The Ataribox is inspired by classic Atari design including wood paneling, but the console will also be available in a black and red with glass.

The Ataribox will have a HDMI port, 4 USB slots, and an SD card slot. Atari has also confirmed it will have both classic and current games on the console, but are remaining tight lipped about the specs. Frequent updates have been promised.

From the heady days of the Mega Drive up until the modern day gaming has been my main hobby. I'll give almost any game a go.

  1. I wasn’t expecting “current games” but glad it does,
    Looks great too.

  2. Looks kinda neat but i do hope it’s not an Atari Classic but a fully fledged cnsole. Granted, Atari lack the resources to even compete against the others but they could go down the indie route, try to get Steam and GOG to support them and could be interesting.

    But it’s gonna to be a glorified Classic isn’t it? Nothing’s wrong with that but it will depend on how many. Not a mere 30 and that’s all, games.

    Though it could end up being a crapload of fecks.

  3. I’m loving the black/ red color. Very Sith-like.

  4. Very nice design. Approved. Now… onto those games. :D

  5. But where’s the cartridge slot? They’ve ruined it! And the nigh-indestructible joystick? The first thing I thought was that these look more like broadband routers, tbh.

    I hope it does well, as competition is always good. But it’s one I’ll be watching from a distance at first, even though I was what would now be described as an “Atari fanboi” back in their console and computer days.
