Ataribox Gone Already?

Postby fmh » Wed Aug 16, 2017 1:31 pm

Going to http://www.ataribox.com/ gives you the message that the Account has been suspended. Is the project already done and doomed or did somebody forget to pay a bill?

I do not know, but it seems the heirs of the mythical brand are finally are using the Atari's authentic methods. :wink:
Hopefully that is for good, I would like much a new Atari machine that it is not a VCS2600 with USB and SD.

They must have finally issued a DMCA takedown request to themselves...

Yeah, the 3rd party legal company they hired just does a Google search fore "Atari" and automatically sends a C&D letter. Now they're going after KitKat (UK) for the Breakout ad they did a year ago... :roll:

They have announced a new design for the console that combines the classic and the modern ecological trend:

This is not comparable to the Spectrum campaign, Atari is a living legend and has raised more than two million dollars in a single day. I hope that the heirs of the brand will live up to its name.

ANIMAION collaborates with these complements and proposes the enlargement of the videoconsola so that it is a new complete computer:

Haha that keyboard looks very ZX Spectrum except for the F-keys.
The Atari VCS looks like a success already. And Infrogrames, the question real Atari or not is not relevant, in my opinion it is the community who makes it an Atari.
Just like when i bought the 800XL Atari was owned by Warner company. Ofcourse it was a real Atari for us then.
I bought the 520STfm and Atari was owned by a former chief of Commodore. Who cared? For me it was a very real Atari.
I ordered this VCS box whatever it may be because it looks like an Atari to me and it has Llamasoft support.
No I don't have a PS4 or Xbox, yes I have a Jag :)

it's from here http://atarionline.pl
if the console finally fail and remain progressively abandoned after it's release, we might see hackers turning it into a somewhat powerfully decent and cheap atari branded computer :)
the keyboard and mouse design is nice, but I guess it will be pretty expensive
