Ataribox pictures and details surface, nostalgia reigns

A month after revealing it during E3 2017, Atari has shown the first full look at its Ataribox console. 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. The new console will feature four USB ports, an SD card reader, HDMI port, and an Ethernet port. Atari said in an email that their goal is to "create something new, that stays true to our heritage, while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari". And that, in turn, fits with the rumour that this might be more than just a retro console. On Nintendo's end, the NES Classic and the upcoming SNES Classic both benefit from a low price tag and the company's large catalog of vintage games.

Special EC pens for Presidential poll
As of 2017, the electoral college comprises 776 MPs (Members of Parliament ) and 4120 MLAs (Members of Legislative Assembly). A total of 337 votes were cast on Saturday in the West Bengal assembly in the presidential polls , sources said.

Unfortunately, there are no further details on pricing or availability, but we do know that the Ataribox can be had in the classic black/wood finish or in a more modern black/red color scheme. However, further details - such as pricing, a release date or specs - are now unknown. Atari has said it isn't deliberately being teasing, but rather wants to make sure it gets things right. Atari, of course, did not spill the beans on every little detail because this console is still a ways off. Like much of the Ataribox's details, specifics around its goals and capabilities remain unknown though. It sounds like they want to make sure everything is as close to flawless before they really begin sharing a bunch of details. It has confirmed that two versions will be offered though, the classic wood look and a black and red design. We'll keep you posted as soon as more information becomes available. What do you think about this new console by Atari? Unlike Nintendo, Atari allows to add games to the system. It's not clear whether that simply means remasters of old titles, or the intent of brand new games eventually coming to the console.
