Atari confirms new game console in the works

But he said it is based on PC technology. Domain information was unavailable at the time, but it was assumed the Ataribox was not something Atari-built, but some kind of third-party project.

Atari has had a hard past at times, with the company filing for bankruptcy protection in 2013. That mini-retro console was a big hit despite only coming with 30 games and having wired controllers with short cables.

In a surprise move, Atari has announced that it's returning to hardware business with a brand new console.

Retro gaming has had a revival in recent years, with Nintendo launching the the NES Classic Edition complete with old games such as Super Mario Bros and The Legend of Zelda. That machine seems to be pretty much everything you could ask for from this type of console. This confirmation comes after a teaser for the Ataribox dropped last week.

Considering that they are sized down to about ten employees and that they are on the verge of bankruptcy, the once mighty Atari is perhaps about to launch a new gaming console for public use - the way they used to be. The market for consoles is stuffed.

The only physical evidence of the AtariBox's existence is a 21-second video showing the company's logo illuminated on a slick wooden panel, which is a glimpse of the iconic Atari 2600. Consider the fact that Microsoft is one of the most successful companies in the world, it spent $100 million just developing the Xbox One's controller, and it's still in third place.

Maybe Atari will blow some minds.
