Atari’s New Ataribox Brings Long-Awaited Retro Revival

Atari first began teasing their new platform at E3 2017 with promises of a brand new Atari product. A short YouTube video previewed the console briefly, offering hints at a wooden enclosure like that of the Atari 2600. Information on the console has been sparse until today.

Atari has given us our first official look at the system itself. In an email announcement Atari specified “our objective is to create something new, that stays true to our heritage, while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari.” The included image is promising evidence that Atari’s new console will satisfy all of the aforementioned criterion. The Ataribox features an elegantly designed matte-black and wooden/ red enclosure, resembling the retro Atari consoles of the past. Embracing modern times, the console features four USB ports, an SD Card slot and an HDMI port.
