An open-source game system? Sign me up.
This is DOA I'm afraid, especially at the laughable price point. Why buy an Atari system when you can buy a real console like PS4, Xbone or Switch.
300bucks to play some Atari classics fuck me
So it's basically another Classic Edition wannabe, but it doubles as a computer. No thanks.
This is destined to fail, just like the Commodore-branded PC's and smartphone. You need a little bit more than a recognisable brand to attract a customer, you need hardware that stands out... unless you're Nintendo, in which case you can rebrand an NVidia Shield and print money with it. :V
This is going to fail miserably. Nothing innovating.
We need to collectively tell Atari that this shit is not what consumers want. The market is already flooded with enough garbage.
Difference with Nintendo is that they have first party support, that's a draw to the system, and since the thing is pretty popular, 3rd party support is flooding in. The ataribox will get neither, no first-party stuff nor AAA support, it has no draw.
Well they tried, but this is going to fail and most likely put them under for good this time.
or just connect a damn pc to your tv
Those'd run you at least $400 to be worthwhile though. It really depends entirely on what Atari sticks in this
You're kidding, right? People are STILL paying $200-$300 for "NES Classic Editions" even though they announced they'll release more at the original price point. And you can only play 30 games on that, and that's it. I know there are hacks but the average user isn't modding it. It's all about marketing.
Well this sucks....i was hoping for a comeback oh well
Well, if you can find that sucker. Doesn´t mean it´s worth that much though.
RIP my hype
fuk ... i already backed the ouya ... am i destined to back this shit too ? i think they just hyped me into a childhood retard mode
It's a Hyper Android Box! From the future to save the past!
Then I'll notify the local dump to be ready for yet another load from Atari.
I stopped reading at Linux.
It looks interesting but I don't think I will buy it. At least until Atari finds a way to compete with Sony and Nintendo.
I mean its good for this generation but what about years into the future until the PS5 Releases, new graphics cards, and CPU's. Then your basically screwed because you bought a 300 dollar console that's worth 50 now a days.
The only problem I have with PC's, at least in gaming or hardware performance is that everything from finding a PC to getting the right equipment is confusing. Even if someone makes a company and makes the quote "High performance PC's" you still don't know if your getting a good deal. The same goes with what console your buying but when you have it narrowed down to three options its easy to pick and chose, but with PC's and having hundreds of options I can see why some may prefer just buying something like the Atari Box or the Steam Machine just so they can play games or run gud graphics.
They need to at least lower the price to $100 if not $200. (Don't call me out I'm not a PC Tech guy.) I would rather buy two PS4's for that price or another Nintendo Switch.
