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?

    oh dear. making codes for nes is kinda stressful. i'm trying to think of cool ideas that haven't been thought of before. it's hard to be original, and i don't wanna make codes that already exist!

    Anywho, I've been using my modded Wii to play a few games here and there, and finally installed a custom Wii theme thanks to Larsenv helping me in a call (I have a family edition, and I don't wanna brick the nand since I can't restore it) Went with the basic "Black" Theme, since I'm a huge fan of dark themes, and it's less of an eyesore at night

    Larsen also helped me with my Dazzle setup, since the drivers for my model weren't online. I also helped dump that DVD with it, since I had a DVD drive.

    does anyone know where to buy replacement usb c cables or you use any usb c cable
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I like to have stuff, but consoles are just too bulky and I wouldn't risk breaking them by actually turning them on, so they'd end up in storage somewhere anyway.
