Ataribox It was presented as a project for all those nostalgic people who wanted to recover that essence of the classic Atari machines and classic video games with a modern twist. The Ataribox was nothing more than a modern game console with more than decent hardware with AMD chips and a Linux-based operating system on which you could run both classic games and other new games created specifically for it. No extraordinary and next-generation graphics, but a console designed for all those who liked the games of the past and have this video console with a vintage design at home.
A few days ago it was announced that you could already make the payment to pre-order this console and thus ensure that we would have it reserved when it finally goes on sale. But now they hit us and it seems that the project has been paused officially. After launching on IndieGoGo to fund this console through crowdfounding, it has now been paused as shown on this page. The truth is that the date for the pre-order campaign has been delayed and it is something that seemed almost obvious analyzing the few details that the people in charge of this project had given ...
However the lack of data It is not the only thing that worries fans who are watching this project, but that now it is paused even before it has started. The developers of this Ataribox have released notifications saying that the IndieGoGo release has been paused because they need more time to create the platform and the Atari community ecosystem was not ready so soon. However, it seems that they are not going to cancel it far from it, since they allege that for them the production of Ataribox is very important and they want to have a product that is worth waiting for.
They have put a plan in motion release update and more detailed information will be given soon, so we will be attentive to see what they tell us. This is the message that read in all those who have consulted about this game console. However, despite the optimistic words, many are those who think that this is the end of the Ataribox and that it will probably not appear as promised, but that it will be canceled and we will never see this interesting machine.
