This generation was really dope in terms of number of consoles we got like PS4, Xbox One, PS4 Slim, Xbox One S, Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS and now we are getting Xbox One X as well. On top of that Nintendo release the NES Classic. And now apparently Atari is planning a big hardware comeback and they are working on a new Atari console.
According to Atari CEO Fred Chesnais, the new system code name Atari box will be based o the PC hardware and will be revealed in more depth later this year. But that doesn’t tell us much because every single console in the market apart from Nintendo is based on the PC hardware.
Atari is saying that it’s going to be based off of the PC hardware, it may suggest that it maybe more powerful than that, maybe it will run some modern games but we don’t know that.
They release a 22 second trailer where you can see some parts of the console and it brings a lot of memories because some parts of the console looks like the good old Atari 2600, the wooden finishing. As soon as we hear more about this console we’ll let you know. We are definitely looking forward to this console and see what they have to offer.
