People have been waiting patiently for the debut of the Ataribox. It seems Atari is taking there time with this one by introducing the design and input/output specs. Atari stated that the Ataribox will be delivering classic gaming content and also will be delivering current gaming content. Atari intends to release two editions: a wood edition, and a black/red edition. In our previous post, we stated a few concerns about the next gen console and current gaming was one of them. We’re really excited to hear we will be able to play our favorite classics alongside todays gaming graphics.
Our objective is to create a new product that stays true to our heritage while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari. – Ataribox Project Team
Inspired by classic Atari design elements (such as the iconic use of wood, ribbed lines, and raised back); we are creating a smooth design, with ribs that flow seamlessly all around the body of the product, a front panel that can be either wood or glass, a front facing logo, indicator lights that glow through the material, and an array of new ports (HDMI, 4xUSB, SD).
