Atari reveals first pictures of its new Ataribox console

A first look at the mysterious Ataribox

Unfortunately, few other details are available at present, but we do know the new console will have a HDMI port, four USB ports and an SD card slot. The Ataribox has been a long time in the coming and Atari would be looking to make the most of it as and when it decides to launch the console. Well, as spotted by The Verge, Atari has now revealed a smidgeon more information on its mysterious new console, alongside a couple of hints as to what it will actually do. Atari hasn't talked about price, date, or specs at this point, though, but it says the Ataribox "will be delivering classic gaming content, [as well as] current gaming content".

Atari's last console was the Jaguar, which was released all the way back in 1993 and was deemed a commercial failure soon after, prompting the company to leave the video game console market. Whether it'll be playing PC software (the 'box is expected to run PC hardware) or some of the newer titles in Atari's back catalogue. Clearly inspired by the Atari 2600, the design is a lovely modern reboot of that console.

Our objective is to create a new product that stays true to our heritage while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari.

South Korea offers rare talks with North to avoid border conflict
Seoul's acting Red Cross chief Kim Sun Hyang said it wants separate talks at the border village on August 1 to discuss family reunions.

Taking obvious design cues from the classic Atari 2600 console, the Ataribox will come in two editions featuring either a wooden or red and black finish, with the front panel made of either wood or glass.

It could be another android style console so we might be seeing games that aren't AAA. However, Atari will also be providing what is being billed as "current content" to the console as well. "We know you are hungry for more details; on specs, games, pricing, timing", reads an Atari statement.

"We're not teasing you intentionally; we want to get this right, so we've opted to share things step by step as we bring Ataribox to life, and to listen closely to Atari community feedback as we do so", said an email from the Ataribox team.
