A first look at the mysterious Ataribox

Gaming company Atari shared some images of the new Ataribox console in a message to fans on Monday (which we saw via The Verge) as well as some details about its spec sheet.

They've used the old-school Atari console design notes to create the Ataribox's aesthetic, riffing on the iconic wood-panelling and ribbed surface.

In terms of connectivity, the Ataribox will come with four USB slots, an HDMI connector and support for expansion via SD card. However, for the last 30 years, Atari has strayed away from console hardware.

While the wait continues for pricing details, availability and a release date, the images contained in the newsletter expand on a brief teaser trailer unveiled during E3 2017 which formally announced Atari's unexpected return to the games hardware business.

The two were spotted kissing by a pool on Friday afternoon, just days after Meeks reportedly filed for separation from his wife . She shared: "He told me, 'I didn't mean it to happen like this.' Those pictures will haunt me forever".


Atari has said previously that while it would be re-releasing classic games for the Ataribox console, including Pac-Man, Pong, Space Invaders and Asteroids, and it will also feature modern gaming content. Whether it'll be playing PC software (the 'box is expected to run PC hardware) or some of the newer titles in Atari's back catalogue. The company plans to deliver both classic games and current gaming content, so it has equipped the Ataribox with modern internal specs and ports. However, Atari also wants to release "current content" too, which could mean any number of things.

As yet there are no details on when this new console from Atari will launch and also no details on how much it will cost, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know.

Still, whatever the Ataribox ends up being, the one definite takeaway is that it'll certainly look nice on your mantelpiece, or wherever the hell it is that you keep your games consoles. The Mini NES succeeded, in part, due to its simplicity and cheap price, both of which would be hard in a more capable console.
