Also while Im on the subject, the Atari 2600, not it's original name, was $199 when it came out...that's like $800 real money now :-O


Fuck my parents must have loved me. :-bd

I don't even want to know what the Air-Sea Battle cartridge would cost in real money now. III/O

You may say "Midnight,

No one knows yet.

I retro console would be the most logical

Atari unlike Microsoft and Sony isn't swimming in money so would have some main stream console issues. :(

Tough competition with PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, and the Switch. ^^|^^
Are developers even interested in tweaking games to run on a 4th unestablished console? :-?
Price? Since Atari has no online services or Game line up to offset high cost of current hardware.
If Atari does not offer exclusives what do they have that sets them aside from the rest of the pack? To keep up with Xbox One X is going to be >$500

But Atari already had a bunch or Retro consoles issued and how big is the market for that crap?

My dad bought an Atari 2600 for himself and I later inherited it. Most of the games we had were bought for a $1 each from a bargain bin.

I predict millennial hipsters paying $69 for Pong.

Also, my parents hated me and purchased an Atari not.

They did get a c64 though later which I took the fuck over :D

Atari's new 'Ataribox' to be 'based on PC technology'

ATARIBOX GAMES – WHAT CAN I PLAY ON IT?
Speaking to Gamesbeat, Atari CEO Fred Chesnais confirmed that the decision to develop a new console was inspired by Nintendo’s success with the NES Mini. Keeping this in mind, it's possible that the Ataribox will be a reasonably priced bit of kit designed to play classic games.

Others believe it could be a fully-fledged machine capable of competing with PS4 and Xbox One. Atari has confirmed the new system is based on PC technology, but is yet to disclose any actual specs.

Returd and proud! I don't play much (I play through 2-3 games a year) so maintaining a PC isn't something I can be bothered with.

I've got 131 games on my Xbox one (paid for 14) and they just started making games from the first gen Xbox backwards compatible
You can connect all three generations of Xboxes together and play first gen lan games now
Some Xbox one games work on windows 10

Yes give them money and they will make some type of console and sell it to you.
