Gamers have been wondering what Atari was thinking when they announced they were making a new console.

At this stage, it isn't clear exactly what content the Ataribox will actually offer, though the company has said it will release classic games alongside a new selection of titles. Indicator lights glow through these materials, and Atari is including SD card support, a HDMI port, and four USB ports on the Ataribox.

In an email to Atari fans, the company reveals "our objective is to create something new, that stays true to our heritage, while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari". 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".

There will be two different versions of the console, one in red and black and the other in wood, the design of the console can be seen in the pictures above and below. And considering there's also a LAN Ethernet port on the rear, could it therefore link to a cloud gaming platform as a streaming device?


Whether or not this machine is as powerful as an Xbox One, Switch or PS4 remains to be seen. However, for the last 30 years, Atari has strayed away from console hardware. If it can produce current gaming specs, we might have another competitor on the scene outside of just Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo.

It could be another android style console so we might be seeing games that aren't AAA.

But Atari have done things the other way round and now the only thing we really know about the Ataribox (yes, that's really what it's called) is that the case looks really cool.
