Atari confirms new game console in the works

Atari's rumored new game console is reportedly PC-based Atari CEO confirms the company is working on a new game console

While the Atari brand name has been used by a number of companies over the years, the memory association of the brand has always been those classic retro gaming consoles where you'd insert coins to play games. Now the Atari CEO has confirmed that a new Atari console is being worked on, though we don't have any real information about it.

In an interview with GamesBeat, Fred Chesnais said the device was based on PC technology, but didn't get into specifics.

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.

Details about this new gaming console, supposedly called "AtariBox", remain unclear.


About a week ago, a mysterious website appeared that offered a glimpse of what appeared to be a new console by Atari.

In doing so, the NY company might be cashing in on the popularity of retro games and Nintendo's retro game console, the NES Classic Edition, that turned out to be surprisingly popular. Atari liberally licences out its classic games and the Atari Flashback 8 Gold was one of Gizmodo's picks for best hardware at this year's E3.

For anyone having grown up in the 1970s to early 1990s, Atari is a brand name that they can not have missed. Atari has pulled itself out of bankruptcy by making some basic mobile games, and signing licensing deals.
