Ataribox first look: New photos of the Atari 2600-inspired game console

Grid View

They billed the Ataribox as something that will combine class and current gaming content, and the look is geared to embody that approach.

In a newsletter, Atari revealed the first-look of its first console in over 20 years; however, it has remained a bit tight-lipped about the nature of the Ataribox and what objective it will serve in today's competitive, big-money console market. However, Atari will also be providing what is being billed as "current content" to the console as well.

Although we do not know for sure, the hardware details, nor the pricing and availability specifics of the Ataribox yet, we now know that it will be "something new that stays true to our heritage, while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari".

So far though there's no indication of how powerful the console is or what kind of games it'll run. Unlike Nintendo's mini console, though, it will have a wide selection of ports: HDMI, four USB ports and an SD card slot. The two different designs for the console seem to revolve around either having a black glass panel in the front, with a red Atari logo, or a wooden front with a white logo. We intend to release two editions: "a wood edition, and a black/red edition".

Beyond that, there's still much we don't yet no. Atari isn't yet discussing pricing details or a release date, nor is it sharing specific information about its games.

Atari started teasing its Ataribox at E3 this year, promising a "brand new Atari product". Atari has said it isn't deliberately being teasing, but rather wants to make sure it gets things right. There are a lot of milestones, challenges and decision points in front of us in the months ahead. But as we find out more, we'll keep you posted. 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!
