because pc misses out on some good games so its worth also owning a console.


Thus, why I have an Xbox One, Two PS4 Pros, a Nintendo Switch, a Playstation Vita, a Nintendo 3DS, and a $5,000 desktop computer.

The price... :/


But yeah it'll likely be a Atari classic ala the NES Mini Nintendo did last year. Doubt they'll get buzz Nintendo did though. The parasites that inhabit the dried out husk that is Atari will without a doubt fuck this up.


lol I've got 1001 gameboy games and a gameboy emulator. I've also got other emulators.

The price tag for any game regardless of what platform is pricy. Xbox games usually cost like what... $50? Same price for PC games.. PS4 games cost $40 - $50? What's the difference?

While all you play on your PS4 and Xbox, I'm just gonna sit here and play my $5 PS2 game, because I don't have money to buy a new console. XD

I was just guessing at the prices. They could be more than what I listed, but I wouldn't know because I don't go into game stores (unless they sell games for old consoles).

Damn. Well the standard price for all new games is $60, physical game store or not, as far as Xbox and PS4 is concerned

$60? That's crazy. Maybe the places I do go to sell them for cheaper prices (or you just live in an area where everything is expensive). Do you like shop at gamestop? They're known for high prices.

Nah, no GameStop. That's just standard everywhere. Since last generation games have literally sold for $60. GameStop, Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc

This new console is either gonna crush all competition, or it's gonna fail so badly that Atari will risk going out of business. I really can't see any other outcome. When you've got such strong competitors such as the Nintendo Switch and the PC already owning a big chunk of the market, you better bring your A-game.

I wonder if its gonna be like a serious contender for present-gen consoles, or maybe a legacy thing

So is this confirmed to be a new console with new games and not just an NES mini type of thing? Either way, it'll probably suck.

ALL HAIL THE GLORIOUS PC MASTER RACE!!

Long may it render...


Back on topic, is there even a market for this?

Atari will not only be taking on Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo but also indirectly Apple, Google, Netflix & Amazon for people's entertainment dollars.

That is a very tall order for a company that last had economic clout in the early 80's.

it looks like its going to be one of those retro mini systems with all the old games preinstalled with capabilities of adding more. so like a steam machine but even more weaker and with less stuff
