Atari are working on a new console?

Atari has announced that they are working on a new console, that has been "years in the making".



Read more on Atari's upcoming console.

Meh, don't care really. I already have enough consoles laying around and then a PC I use every day.

There's only two ways that this can go. Either it's the greatest console ever made or it's a disappointment. And I'm betting on the latter.

If they're trying to compete with PC/Xbone/PS4, just think about what this console would have to be like to be successful:
1. It would have to be at the very least just as powerful as the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X;
2. It would have to be affordable;
3. It would have to have attractive first party titles;
4. It would have to be easy to develop for in order to have support from third party developers;
5. It would absolutely need third party support;
6. It would have to be consumer friendly.

And if they're not competing with those systems, then it's a disappointment already.

It's probably some retro thing. Note the tagline "years in the making" they could be referring to the games. It's probably a throw back of sorts.

Yeah I was gonna say they don't have the funds to make a top end console.

If it contains all of their arcade games yes it would be nice. If it is another modern console that it is the last thing we need.

Yeah, I'm gonna jump on the retro-box-train as well.
It's very unlikely, but it could also be a steambox, considering its name: Ataribox. But that's just very farfetched
