Atari confirms new game console in the works

The brief 20-second footage offered users a glimpse of a device with a wood veneer footage, much like Atari's first console - the classic Atari 2600. The coding for the site itself doesn't give anything way either.

In an exclusive interview with VentureBeat, Atari CEO Fred Chesnais confirmed that the prestigious company are working on a new game console. The iconic Atari brand is synonymous with retro gaming, but soon, we'll be able to play a new Atari console.

Atari has not revealed any specific details regarding the upcoming console such as its development process, what games it would support, pricing or any possible launch window.

Minnesota officer acquitted in deadly Philando Castile shooting; victim's family expresses anger
A still from the Facebook Live video Philando Castile's girlfriend took during the fatal shooting by a Minnesota police officer. After Castile told the officer he had the gun, Yanez told Castile, "OK, don't reach for it then", and, "Don't pull it out".

"But what really matters to all the Atari fans is that the company is 'back in the hardware business". As it stands, it looks as if Atari could be planning to create a throwback console, with a selection of their classic games, not too dissimilar to the Nintendo NES Classic, which saw huge success past year.

Would you be interested in a retro Atari console? The company is in the midst of a big revival, with Chesnais buying the company after it filed for bankruptcy protection in 2013.

All we can do is wait and see if Ataribox will be a triumphant return for the legendary gaming brand or more of an E.T. sort of deal for the company. Consider the fact that Microsoft is one of the most successful companies in the world, it spent $100 million just developing the Xbox One's controller, and it's still in third place.
