This Month On Edge
The things that caught our eye during the production of E310
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.
