The first new Atari games console in 24 years has been revealed!!

Revealed - The AtariBox!

Atari has revealed that it is making its first brand new games console in 24 years and it's clearly inspired by their 1970's heyday. The AtariBox looks like a modern take on their iconic Atari 2600 with a HDMI output, 4 USB inputs and an SD card slot built in but so far that is pretty much all that’s known so far about this intriguing new games console!

Here is the newsletter from Atari in full ...

Our objective is to create a new product that stays true to our heritage while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari.
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.
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.
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. There are a lot of milestones, challenges and decision points in front of us in the months ahead. We’ll be giving you lots more information and status updates as we progress, and we are thrilled to have you along for the ride!

Hope you like where we are taking this, we’ll be in touch soon.

The Ataribox Project team.

Atari have stated that the wood effect on the front of the AtariBox is actually not an effect but real wood! How cool is that!
