Atari CEO confirms the company is working on a new game console

Either way, The Escapist had confirmation from the CEO of Atari, Fred Chesnais, that the company are getting back into the Hardware business.

Would you be interested in a retro Atari console?

Chesnais acquired Atari in 2013 after company executives filed for bankruptcy protection when it became a dying firm. It sounds like the Ataribox is being developed in-house, and will hopefully boast improved emulation, more features, and better build quality. He does say that it is a PC based gaming system, though, albeit not a surprise.

Legal experts to Trump on travel ban: Twitter hurting cause

Twenty years ago, Atari was a name synonymous with video game hardware, known as industry pioneers for their various different home computing releases.

For anyone having grown up in the 1970s to early 1990s, Atari is a brand name that they can not have missed. Meaning they started work before the NES Classic was a bandwagon to jump on. Yes, the Nintendo Switch is a big hit, but it offers a simple and practical gimmick along with some quality exclusives and many more on the way.

The only physical evidence of the AtariBox's existence is a 21-second video showing the company's logo illuminated on a slick wooden panel, which is a glimpse of the iconic Atari 2600. 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. For now, the only thing that looks promising is the return of faux wood.
