Atari has revealed more details about its much anticipated Ataribox, with the company saying it would deliver “current gaming content”.
While Atari is still keeping many of the Ataribox’s details secret for now, in an email to fans the company has said that it will be releasing two editions of its new console: a wood edition, and a black/red edition.
The company also revealed that while the Ataribox will work in a similar way to the NES and SNES Classic, in that it will provide access to classic games, the company said that its retro titles will be available alongside current content.
Although, it isn’t clear at this stage what the company means by current content.
Other details on the Ataribox are scant at this point, but Atari did say that it would feature an array of new ports including two HDMI ports , 4 USB ports and SD card support, which are included to make the Ataribox a modern console rather than just a rehash of Atari’s classic consoles.
The company also said that it would be listening closely to Atari community feedback so that it builds a product the Atari community can be proud of.
However, at this stage Atari is keeping information on games, pricing, release dates and full specs pretty close to its chest.
“We’re not teasing you intentionally; we want to get this right, so we’ve opted to share things step by step as we bring Ataribox to life, and to listen closely to Atari community feedback as we do so” reads Atari’s statement.
“There are a lot of milestones, challenges and decision points in front of us in the months ahead. We’ll be giving you lots more information and status updates as we progress, and we are thrilled to have you along for the ride!”
