Ataribox Will Come In Two Versions, But We Still Don’t Know What Games It Will Play

It has been just over a month since the rebirthed company known as Atari announced that it was working on a new console. Now they are giving us a better look at it. In an email to fans, the company revealed that the Ataribox will come in two editions, both very retro, but with some contemporary design elements as well.

One version is based on the brown wood found on the original Atari 2600. The other will come in red and black with a glass front panel. Both have those ribbed lines around the console’s body and a raised back.

There is also a front-facing logo and four indicator lights, an HDMI port, four USB ports, and SD card support. We don’t have details on price, release date, or specs yet, but it sounds like it will be more than just a NES Classic for the Atari.

Word on the street is that the Ataribox will play a mix of classic and modern titles. That makes sense, given the fact that you can already buy an Atari Flashback if you only want to play the old games. It’s more likely that it plays modern casual games too, since Atari makes a bunch of mobile games for Android and iOS these days, and there’s a chance they’ll port some of those titles to play on this console.
