  • Atari is Back: Everything We Know About Ataribox

Atari's last official console-the ill-fated Atari Jaguar-was marketed as the first 64-bit console at a time when consoles had only just gone 32-bit. The company wants to appeal to both fans old and new and there will be two designs.

Atari sent out an email early Monday morning to fans of the in-development project, complete with the first real look at what the console is going to look like.

It was also revealed initially that the Ataribox will have a wooden box much like the 2600 console from back in the day. Given the success that Nintendo found with the NES Classic Edition, and the hype surrounding the upcoming SNES Classic, Atari is definitely introducing the Ataribox to a receptive audience. No one knows if this could be more current Atari games, mobile games, or maybe higher-end console and PC games. Atari didn't give any more details and said more info on specs, games, features, price, and release date would come later.

Likewise, it's been revealed that Atari will release two versions of the Ataribox, one in wood and a second with a black/red housing. The new console from Atari was announced at the E3 2017. It boasts support for SD cards, a HDMI port, and four USB ports. It sounds like they want to make sure everything is as close to flawless before they really begin sharing a bunch of details. We'll keep you posted as soon as more information becomes available.
