Building on the established success of the NES Classic and the probable one of the imminent Super NES Classic, Atari has announced the latest member of its video game dynasty, a mini console which once again banks on retro style and nostalgia. Atari revealed its latest console, called Ataribox, whose design is based on the 1977 Atari 2600. So far, there are few details about it; all we know is that it will have SD card readers, four USB ports and one HDMI port, and that it will come with classic and modern games. Atari’s previous release, the Jaguar console of 1993, was a flop. Release date and price have not been revealed, but according to rumours, it seems that Atari may crowdfund the Ataribox.
