Atari unveils its new gaming console - Ataribox

17 July 2017

For the first time Atari teased its upcoming console at recent E3 2017 event, through a short video. Atari filed for bankruptcy protection in 2013, but Chesnais bought it and pledged to make it great again.

That confirms our suspicions last month, when Atari announced the idea, that the company is trying to gauge demand before it commits to hiring a hardware team to turn the concept into reality.

Survivors include two daughters: writer and producer Susie Landau Finch and actress Juliet Landau; a sister; and a granddaughter. Martin Landau , the popular character actor known for roles in films like " Ed Wood " and "North by Northwest ", has died.

"We're back in the hardware business", he told GamesBeat.

Ultimately, whether this console works is going to come down to how heavily Atari leans on nostalgia, what its definition of "modern" games looks like (and where those games are sourced from), and how much it costs. Let us know in the comments. Atari, of course, did not spill the beans on every little detail because this console is still a ways off.

The Ataribox is one of the best-looking consoles we've seen in years, but there's one problem: it doesn't have any games yet. Two versions of the Ataribox will be released, one in wood, and one in black / red.

As for what that functionality actually is.well, there is some room for debate. there.

Atari claims that this console will stay true to its heritage while also appealing to both old and new Atari fans. As such, the Ataribox will be able to play both classic and modern titles.

On the back of the Ataribox you'll find four USB ports, a HDMI port, an SD card slot, power out, and what looks like an Ethernet port.
