Smell like the 80s. Meet the new Ataribox

25 years since the release of Atari Jaguar and here we are back with a reboot.  During the E3, Atari unveiled the new Ataribox, a console that would certainly appeal to the hardcore collectors as well as the newcomers.

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.” The new Ataribox is clearly inspired by the classic wood found on the Atari 2600, and the new console features ribbed lines, a raised back, and a front panel that can either be glass or wood. Indicator lights glow through these materials, and Atari is including SD card support, a HDMI port, and four USB ports on the Ataribox. Two versions of the Ataribox will be released, one in wood, and one in black / red.

But until now, the release of Ataribox and its price tag still remain a mystery.
