Atari is back with a new console! The makers of this new console told us “Our objective is to create a new product that stays true to our heritage while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari.”
The system will have two looks and light up. It has HDMI and 4 USB ports.
“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.”
Atari intends to make this a modern machine. As for games they were pretty vague on exactly what games will be seeing on the system.
“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.”
No details were given on specs, games, features, pricing, timing. It seems they wanna get this right and intend to take it step by step. Asking for community feedback.
