Atari has just sent me an email on their new Ataribox design, and it is looking sexy as hell. It still has that same ribbed divisions as the Atari 2600, but gives a more refined modern look to it than ever before with some modern technology included within. As per the Atari Project Team:
Our objective is to create a new product that stays true to our heritage while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari.
Inspired by classic Atari design elements (such as the iconic use of wood, ribbed lines, and raised back); we are creating a smooth design, with ribs that flow seamlessly all around the body of the product, a front panel that can be either wood or glass, a front facing logo, indicator lights that glow through the material, and an array of new ports (HDMI, 4xUSB, SD). We intend to release two editions: a wood edition, and a black/red edition.
We haven't been given much information on the console right now, other than the new design, but hoping that some more exclusive reveals are on their way in time to come. Here are some more images to wet your appetite.
