Intriguing title Ataribox and a minimum of useful information. During the E3 conference the company’s CEO, Fred Chesnais, in an interview said that the heart device is a “PC technology”. Plus there’s a short teaser with beautiful images of something patterned made of wood and plastic. And that’s all.
Atari – not the brand, the reference of which is able to excite the hearts of modern gamers. The peak of popularity this company has fallen to 70-80-years of the last century, when a PC as such has not yet conquered the market. But with the ascent platform Nintendo Atari position in the gaming industry have been lost, and the company retrained for software development. In fact, in the world of consoles hasn’t heard since 1996.
And now, two decades later, Atari announced the return of with a new product called Aratibox. The most likely version: it’s a “classic” game console, similar to Nintendo’s NES Classic Mini or Sega Mega Drive Classic. A PC emulator with its own store of games that work with a external monitor. However, the company already has a similar product Atari Flashback, two new versions of which were announced just recently.
Maybe Ataribox this part of the line for the “Internet of things”, on which Atari works together with Sigfox? To speculate on this subject can be long, but in the absence of detailed information is unproductive. Simply be patient and wait for the full unveiling coming soon.
