Ataribox pictures and details surface, nostalgia reigns

Ataribox pictures and details surface, nostalgia reigns

However, for the last 30 years, Atari has strayed away from console hardware.

Atari sent the photos to those who signed up for updates on the Ataribox site.

While technical details on the Ataribox are slim, Atari-or at least, the company that now goes by the Atari name after the original Atari went bankrupt in 2013-has revealed that the console will come in both red/black and wood editions, the latter paying homage to the 1977 original.

Atari has also stated that "we will be delivering classic gaming content", much like the NES and SNES Classic Mini retro consoles from Nintendo, but "will also be delivering 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.

Presidential polls: Voters to get special pens
The President is chosen by an electoral college comprising all the MPs and MLAs in the country, with weighted votes apportioned. As many as 3,460 members of parliament and members of legislative assemblies have declared assets worth more than Rs. 1 crore.

It will however have some features more in line with modern expectations - a HDMI port can be found on the rear along with four USB ports, with support built in for SD card expansion, which suggests uses will be able to sideload their own content on the machine.

Previously, Atari CEO Fred Chesnais told GamesBeat that the games company is "back in the hardware business". Each will have a raised back and "ribbing", making it reminiscent of the console that inspired it, while options for glass or wood front finishes will be available. "We know you are hungry for more details; on specs, games, pricing, timing", reads an Atari statement.

Atari says the lack of details is not a situation where the firm is teasing people intentionally, rather they are working slowly and going step-by-step in order to get things right. There are a lot of milestones, challenges and decision points in front of us in the months ahead.

As said, more information about the Ataribox console will be shared later on. But as we find out more, we'll keep you posted.
