This news comes with an 8-bit of nostalgia. Atari, if you can believe that, is coming out with a new gaming system. This is the first system in 20 years. This really comes as no surprise as we see older companies like Nintendo are coming our with miniature versions of the NES and SNES consoles.
Atari has announced in a newsletter on line that they are developing the Ataribox. They have been teasing for a while now that they will be announcing a new product at the 2018 E3 Gaming convention. The teasing has been enough to give retro gaming fans like myself super excited. As you can see from the photos, they reveal a system inspired by the classic Atari design, with a more elegant flow of ribbed lines and slightly raised back.
“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.
At the moment there are only two designs that Atari has announced and they are a sleek wooden model or a black and red version. There is still a lot of secrecy involved when it comes to details surrounding the project, but the team at Atari is promising that both editions will have HDMI and SD ports, along with four USB ports.
