Atari reveals first pictures of its new games console

Atari has also stated that "we will be delivering classic gaming content", much like the NES and SNES Classic Mini retro consoles from Nintendo, but "will also be delivering current gaming content". For example, you will be able to order an Ataribox with a wooden front panel, and the ribbed lines along the top of the casing definitely recalls the original.

All Atariboxes have an SD card reader, an HDMI port, and four USB ports, as well as glowing indicator lights, but Atari isn't sharing any more details as of yet. Expect further updates from Atari on the new console within the coming months.

It appears Atari will be back in the console gaming market.

Abigail From Final Fight Joins the Street Fighter V Roster
The first stage is the Kanzuki Family Stadium, while the second stage is Street Fighter II's Suzaku Castle, which was Ryu's home. He can either be purchased with in-game fight money, or bought as part of the game's second season character pass.


Gaming company Atari shared some images of the new Ataribox console in a message to fans on Monday (which we saw via The Verge) as well as some details about its spec sheet.

Atari started teasing its Ataribox at E3 this year, promising a "brand new Atari product".

Where exactly Ataribox fits alongside PS4 and Xbox One on the current video game hardware landscape is anyone's guess, although it sounds Atari's big, post-bankruptcy comeback will be a little overpowered if you want one for just a few rounds of Pac-Man or Space Invaders.

Jorge Mendes offers Portuguese starlet to AC Milan
Speaking recently, Bayern's chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admitted Sanches could be loaned out this summer. At the price their CEO quoted, you would wonder if Jose Mourinho would be interested in signing the midfielder.


In an email to Atari fans, the company reveals "our objective is to create something new, that stays true to our heritage, while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari". One is a more modern black/red box, while the other features wood panelling, which serves as a nice callback to the Atari 2600. Perhaps Atari is going to republish some classics, or make a new game in retro style. We still have no pricing, availability or release date information. The Mini NES succeeded, in part, due to its simplicity and cheap price, both of which would be hard in a more capable console.

We haven't seen what its controller looks like yet, so here's our pick of the best PC controllers in the meantime.

Lonzo Ball had his best game after ditching Big Baller Brand
We are talking about an exhibition that used to be played in high school gyms with about 20 fans in the stands just 10 years back. Dennis Smith Jnr paced the Mavericks with 21 points (7/13 FG) and six assists, while Yogi Ferrell added 15 points and five dimes.
