This week however, Atari is making a return, announcing the Ataribox, which was originally teased last month.

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. Atari have since offered up more information on the console. The new console will feature four USB ports, an SD card reader, HDMI port, and an Ethernet port.

The images come from email sent to Atari fans, in which the company says that, "our objective is to create something new, that stays true to our heritage, while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari".

With its ribbed lines and raised back, the Ataribox's design is pretty clearly inspired by old Atari consoles.

As said, more information about the Ataribox console will be shared later on. The interesting part is that the company hints that this console can deliver "current gaming content". Now we have a series of renders featuring this new Atari console. That's right. "Atari", "upcoming", and "console" were all used in the same sentence.

The two versions of the Ataribox that will release can be seen below. But after the games industry crash of 1983, Atari shuttered its doors and became an also-ran to newer competitors like Nintendo and Sony. Today, just one month after their announcement, Atari has released new photos showing off the design for its new system the "Ataribox". Like much of the Ataribox's details, specifics around its goals and capabilities remain unknown though.

There are not many more details, but the company has made it clear that they want to get this reveal right. A fourth console option would be a major shake up for the industry, which has only had three consoles on the market at one time since Sega bowed out of the hardware business with the seriously underrated Dreamcast. Chances are you won't be playing the latest Call Of Duty on this thing, but you might be able to load up some Android games when you're all fed up with Missile Command.
