    There's no way this console is going to be any kind of actual competition with current gen stuff, you can throw that hope out the window right now. Atari simply doesn't have the money to come even close for R&D costs alone, not to mention production, testing, and development. I will be 100% shocked if this console is anything even remotely close to a PS4/Xbone in terms of actual power, less so if it just beats out the Switch (cuz a potato could do that).

    I do hope it's something neat though, I was always fascinated with the 2600 growing up so I don't want Atari to fuck this up and die on us cuz they bit off more than they could chew.

    I suppose this will be a really pretty emulation machine, with true to the times controllers and an Atari themed case.
    Most probably made to resemble the 2600, and emulating only this system. But perhaps it would emulate some other Atari system.
    It can't be anything more complex or costly than that, it makes no sense in the current market.

    It will be like the NES Classic edition but Atari. Its main buyers will be a lot of oldschoolers moved by nostalgia.

    What would be kinda cool, generic Android hardware of course, but with BT for the Joystick, 4 USB ports with Atari releasing some add ons. Disk drives that would load actual ST software from 3.5 inch disks. Keyboards and mice, maybe some cart adapters for old Atari systems. Also Atari could have it's own ROM's market place to sell to people who don't want or know how to pirate. (Plus the official stuff could come with art and box scans and stuff) If the price of this was reasonable I could see a market for it, as long as they stay away from that Jag controller....
