Atari Shows Off Renders Of The Upcoming Ataribox

Today we got our first real look at Atari's incoming console, the Ataribox.

But now we predict one of three fates, none of which are pleasant: a rushed, no good console; a belated console with production issues; or an announcement in a few months time that the whole project has been dropped. On Monday, Atari gave the first "substantial" glimpse into its next gaming console - the Ataribox.

Both versions feature SD card support, an HDMI port, and four USB ports.

According to the newsletter, Atari's objective is to create a new product that stays true to its heritage while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari. Like the Atari consoles of old, the Ataribox will include a wood fascia with ribbed lines.

As for content, we should expect a mix of classic games and "current content" whatever that means.

Atari says the lack of details is not a situation where the firm is teasing people intentionally, rather they are working slowly and going step-by-step in order to get things right. You can check out the revamped design below, the console still borrows the Atari style from its predecessor but also slimmed down to a unique representation of thin block based design.

It could be another android style console so we might be seeing games that aren't AAA.

Still, until we know what's under the hood it's probably sensible to manage your expectations. There is also Atari's "Rollercoaster Tycoon" series, with the most recent game having come out last December, "Rollercoaster Tycoon Touch".

Atari sent the photos to those who signed up for updates on the Ataribox site. There will be two versions of the Ataribox available: black/red and a wood edition, notes The Verge.

While we don't know too much about the Ataribox, there's already a huge wave of excitement over the return of the brand that, essentially, started it all. Both consoles feature games including Tecmo Bowl, The Legend of Zelda and Dr. Mario.
