CON­SOLE

The Atari­box bit.ly/atari­box2017 ET:TheEx­tra-Ter­res­trial gave our younger selves night­mares for months, you know. And while it was noth­ing com­pared to the hor­rors that were vis­ited on the Atari ex­ecs who car­ried the can for the most fa­mous fail­ure in videogame his­tory, it does mean we’re a lit­tle cool on the com­pany’s new Atari­box. De­signed both to ap­peal to old fans while also at­tract­ing new ones, the new, HDMI-en­abled con­sole has a ribbed plas­tic de­sign, with a front panel avail­able in glass or clas­sic wood. The com­pany says the sys­tem will sup­port ‘cur­rent con­tent’ as well as vin­tage games; quite how that will work for a com­pany whose first­party soft­ware ef­fort con­sists solely of Roller­coaster Ty­coon is any­one’s guess, how­ever.
