Title: New Console For Atari
Post by: pcm92 on July 17, 2017, 04:53:03 pm
Atari is releasing a new home console. First one in 24 years. This is almost as big as Sony releasing vinyl records again.

I hope this is not fake. If it is, that's just gay. Atari probably should have remained third party though.

It's not going to rival Sony etc Spock, it's just another way to access retro games through official means instead on roms etc.

Here I was thinking it was way too early for the next generation of consoles.

Atari was always hiding in the background of SEGA and Nintendo, so it would have been cool to see them upfront for a change.

I just wanted a good third company involved besides Microsoft and Sony.

I guess I should have read the entire article.

It would be nice to have Sega make a high quality retro console. Neither Nintendo or Sega seemed to what it though.

I love to see SEGA to a Model 1 mini Mega Drive/Mega CD unit, but it never happen.  Also, this system would be cool if its features a collection of Atari Arcade games and some of the better Jaguar games, if not then to me its a waste of time
