Atari are working on a new console?

 

Atari has announced that they are making a new gaming console, a new product that has been "years in the making", though sadly there is not much that is known about the console at this time.

In an interview with VentureBeat, Atari's CEO Fred Chesnais has confirmed that "We’re [Atari] back in the hardware business," while also stating that the new console is based on PC technology. Will this be a new x86 console? 

At this time it is unknown whether this will be a Mini NES Classic Edition-style console rerelease or an entirely new system, though the company is still working on the console's design. 

Below is the first teaser image for this new Atari console, with CEO Fred Chesnais promising to bring the company back to its glory days. 

 

 

At this time it is not known when Atari's new console will release, or what exactly this new console will be. Those who want more information on this new console when it becomes available can join the mailing list on Atari's Ataribox website.

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.Quote

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.Quote
