They've used the old-school Atari console design notes to create the Ataribox's aesthetic, riffing on the iconic wood-panelling and ribbed surface.

But now we predict one of three fates, none of which are pleasant: a rushed, no good console; a belated console with production issues; or an announcement in a few months time that the whole project has been dropped. Well, as spotted by The Verge, Atari has now revealed a smidgeon more information on its mysterious new console, alongside a couple of hints as to what it will actually do.

In terms of connectivity, the Ataribox will come with four USB slots, an HDMI connector and support for expansion via SD card. The company wants to appeal to both fans old and new and there will be two designs. Their last system was 1993's Jaguar. The console, however, will not feature cartridges or discs-The Ataribox will be all digital.

Atari isn't providing any more information on pricing, release dates, game content, or even full specs right now. Atari stated that they are remaining intentionally vague regarding certain Ataribox details as they want to make sure they have time to get everything right and wish to have time to make adjustments based on consumer feedback.

Atari, in the hope of emulating the success of Nintendo's Mini NES and Mini SNES, has unveiled the Ataribox-a modern console inspired by the legendary Atari 2600, which was first released in 1977. Atari is not sharing the specs of the console yet.

For now, though, that's about all we know. We intend to release two editions: "a wood edition, and a black/red edition". " We later found out that it was going to be a new home gaming console called the Ataribox". We don't have answers to many of our questions yet, but Atari promises to keep fans updated. However, Atari will also be providing what is being billed as "current content" to the console as well. What do you think about this new console by Atari?
