To be honest, I thought Atari went bankrupt years ago. What the fuck have they been up to..

Every console for the past couple decades has been based on "PC technology", so I'm not sure what's meant by that. That's about as vague of a statement as you can make.

 

Also, in regards to news, you can recommend articles here. If published by an Editor, you'll earn a raffle ticket.

Yeaaah, I'm not too sure what was meant by that either XD

And alrighty :D

Probably bought out as a subsidiary.

Probably just going to be an emulation box in the vein of NES classic. If Atari actually releases a real modern console, it's going to flop. I guarantee that.

Probably. Given Atari's track record, I wouldn't recommend putting any stake into Atari. However, I am curious what they're making.

 

They don't have the mind share that Microsoft and Sony have, and given that they've just exited bankruptcy, I don't think they can adequately back up an eighth generation console. However, if they come out with the right system and make the right decisions in marketing and getting games for that system, they could very well have the fighting chance that they need. But what could they make that would compete? This console generation has really been something else, and I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt this one time for the sake of my curiosity.
