The long-awaited Ataribox will be opening for pre-orders on December 14th, 2017! There will be pre-order deals, but they will be "extremely limited," so get ready to keep refreshing your inbox if you want a chance to get one.
What are your thoughts? Are you planning on getting one?

Update: I found an image of *part* of the controller for the Ataribox, you cant tell much (Atari did this on purpose) but it is something...

Edit2: Looks like the controller might be this (ataribox instagram)

I certainly hope not. They were aiming at having some modern games.... right?

The Ataribox is a new game console by Atari that will supposedly play classic + modern games.

Edit: modern.... Indie titles, that is....
RIP ataribox

Update- I noticed that I could see a small part of the controller, check the original post for an image.

So is this supposed to compete with Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo?
I think that's their concept.
There are only so many games that you can play with a joystick and 1 button.

Just because people have been waiting a long time doesn't mean that it's good lol. Maybe long-dreaded is better?



Update- if you haven't noticed, I added a link to their indiegogo.
Yes, indigogo.
By the same site that brought you Aido.

No modern game can be played with that controller. It either has to come with a proper controller or else its basically an over-glorified emulator.

It has been said that it is running Linux and that might not be the official controller because if you look at the picture with partial controller it looks a little bit different

Could an official controller that you can get separately so you get the original feel when playing older Atari games.
Any idea on the specs, GPU? CPU? RAM?

I had a 2600 Atari when I was a kid. Loved it and my parents enjoyed Pac Man a lot. Anyway.. to me.. I dont know if it will sell well. A 3rd party support ? I doubt.
