Atari reveals the Ataribox

If you have never played the original Atari 2600, you may very well get your chance in glorious HD

First seen at E3 2017, fans were given a short teaser on Atari's return to the console realm but we didn't even get to see the whole system.

Recently Atari has released offical images of its new Ataribox in an email to fans together with a little more information on what they have in store for us soon. The console will feature "modern internal specs" like HDMI, 4xUSB, and an SD card slot that aims to deliver both classic and current gaming content. The images revealed an Atari 2600-inspired design and for both its wood edition and black/red edition. 

 

But don't hold your breath if you are expecting to play the next Grand Theft Auto at 120 frames per second and classic Space Invaders on the same console. Atari hasn't released any other information on gameplay or even its release date.

"We know you are hungry for more details; on specs, games, features, pricing, timing etc. We’re not teasing you intentionally; we want to get this right, so we’ve opted to share things step by step," said Atari.

However, this isn't the first time we've seen a classic console making a return. Last year Nintendo released its Nintendo Classic Mini: NES (only to be discountinued again earlier this year) and the Sega Megadrive made its revival. 

But what will Atari bring to the table with its Ataribox? Check back with Stuff for all the latest updates.
