Atari is making a new console

Famed video game console maker Atari is planning to release a new system, the first in over 20 years. Last week, a website for the AtariBox popped up with a teaser trailer. Since then, people have been speculating as to what it could be. Is it a re-release of a classic Atari console? Is it something new? Will it have that wood grain we all know and find stylishly unappealing?

Atari CEO Fred Chesnais spoke with VentureBeat to confirm that yes, the company is making a new system. But he didn’t provide much details beyond it using PC components and that they were still working on the design.
