Atari Releases First Images of Its New Ataribox Console

Here's our first look at Atari's new console

Previously, Atari CEO Fred Chesnais told GamesBeat that the games company is "back in the hardware business". The company has now revealed the new Ataribox console and it sounds like it will offer more than just a retro gaming fix.

In a newsletter sent to fans, Atari has revealed some details and shared a few pictures of the console's exterior. Clearly inspired by the Atari 2600, the design is a handsome modern reboot of that console. Though Atari now licenses its brand out, it's moved to reassure fans that all is going well with the Ataribox.

Additionally, Atari has unveiled two cosmetically different, but equally sleek, versions of the machine-one with a fetchingly retro red and black veneer, and the other with an even more fetching, even more retro wooden frontage.

Unfortunately, there are no further details on pricing or availability, but we do know that the Ataribox can be had in the classic black/wood finish or in a more modern black/red color scheme. It will also deliver "classic gaming content" too. At the same time, Atari's new console will deliver current content although it isn't clear how the company plans on doing that.

Beyond that, there's still much we don't yet no. Atari isn't yet discussing pricing details or a release date, nor is it sharing specific information about its games.

The post went on to suggest that "there are a lot of milestones, challenges and decision points in front of us in the months ahead", perhaps indicating that the console won't be ready for release in 2017. We'll be giving you lots more information and status updates as we progress, and we are thrilled to have you along for the ride!

"We're not teasing you intentionally; we want to get this right, so we've opted to share things step by step as we bring Ataribox to life, and to listen closely to Atari community feedback as we do so", said an email from the Ataribox team.
