Atari working on mysterious new games console

Atari haven’t released a new games console since the Atari Jaguar in 1993, but that’s about to change with the recent reveal of the very mysterious Atari Box.

The CEO of Atari, Fred Chesnais, revealed in an interview with GamesBeat that the internals of the new console will be based on PC technology.

Other than this, and a glimpse of the console in the below video, Atari have said nothing else about their newest hardware, so it’s difficult to say if it is a console that is being released to go head to head against the big three or whether it’s a console that looks to the past and allows you to play games from Atari’s back catalog. Whatever the case, the console has apparently been years in the making.

Let’s hope that Atari will be more forthcoming about the new console soon. If you want to keep up to date, you can also register your email address on
