Atari has revealed the design of its much anticipated ‘Ataribox’ almost a month after the it confirmed that it is working on the gaming console. ‘Ataribox’ is the first gaming console that the company has worked on in over two decades. The company revealed the design in a newsletter after the amount of the feedback that it received when it first teased the product.
Atari pointed out that the new console is inspired by the classic design elements that the company has used in past products. The renders of the device point towards a ‘smooth design’ where ribs seamlessly flow around the body along with a front panel that will be made from glass or wood. The front will also come with an Atari logo (apart from the indicator lights) that will make it glow.
The device comes with an HDMI port, four USB ports, and an SD card slot. The company will release two editions of the Ataribox including the wood edition and a red or black colour edition. The company has pointed out that in addition to giving classic gaming content, the Ataribox will be capable of running the current gaming content as well.
This tease is one of the first in a series of things that Atari has decided to share using these newsletters. It does not want to rush through all the aspects of this new console by unveiling everything at once. This will ensure that the users can provide feedback to the company, designers and engineers working on the device to tweak it as the development continues.
