First look at the new Atari’s console… the Ataribox

Classic gaming gets a redo.

Say hello to the new Atari console called the Ataribox. Via EuroGamer:

In a newsletter published online, Atari revealed the sleek design for their first console in over 20 years – the Ataribox.

“Our objective is to create a new product that stays true to our heritage while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari,” wrote the Atari Project Team.

The Ataribox is inspired by the classic Atari consoles, with a trademark wood design, ribbed lines and raised back. The company revealed the console will be available in either a wood or 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,” the team wrote in the newsletter.

  1. When they say current do they mean games on PS4, Xbox1 and PC? Or games that will be available on iOS, Android and the Switch? They seem to keeping the details vague. I just hope they don’t expect to steal a large portion of the console market. If their expectations are for a niche group of gamers. I imagine it will be fine.

    • I’m expecting something like a streamed console. Doesn’t seem feasible that it could be anything more than that.

      • That would make sense. A Chromo or apple TV type of console. Not sure if there is a market for that. Guess time will tell. Especially depending on what the price will be for this new console.
