Atari is indeed working on a new console, says CEO

Atari is indeed working on a new console, says CEO

A YouTube video earlier this month teased what appeared to be a new console from Atari.

The only detail Chesnais gave to GamesBeat was to say that the Ataribox is based on PC technology.

What hasn't been expanded upon is whether this new machine will go down a similar route to Nintendo's NES Mini or if Atari are creating a more modern machine. Back in 2013, Atari filed for bankruptcy, but bounced back around 2015 by re-releasing its game catalog and developing new mobile games. That mini-retro console was a big hit despite only coming with 30 games and having wired controllers with short cables. That machine seems to be pretty much everything you could ask for from this type of console. Atari also continues to license its brands. This confirmation comes after a teaser for the Ataribox dropped last week.

British inflation rate rises to 4-year high of 2.9 pct
U.S. consumers cutting down on their purchases of motor vehicles and other discretionary spending contributed to the decline. In commodities, oil prices fell more than 1 percent, on the backfoot again on worries about USA oversupply.


That plan would nearly surely be suicide. However, again, whether or not the footage is a glimpse of the actual Ataribox or the company is just using footage of the Atari 2600 for effect is unclear, and Chesnais didn't provide any clarification.

This is exactly the path Microsoft and Sony took when Xbox One and PlayStation 4 were still in development. Atari just couldn't compete and if it's trying to build some sort of Steam box, it's hard to imagine they could succeed while the Steam Machine has failed. Maybe they have something totally new up their sleeves. Turns out, it's a real thing though.
