ATARI hotel in Phoenix, Arizona

Postby 1st1 » Wed Feb 12, 2020 7:26 pm

Hello, unbelieveable, some times the reality takes over the satire...

Do you know Kamelopedia? That's a german satire wiki, ok sometimes a bit stupid, but some times quite genious. They have an artice "Hotelfüher Hamburg" (Hamburg Hotel Guide). Ok, it*s not Phoenix in Arizona, and it's not Las Vegas, Denver, Chicago, Austin, Seattle, San Francisco, and San Jose, but only dirty old german harbour town Hamburg, but see their guide's table of content:

1 Hotel Commodore
2 Hotel Amiga
3 ATARI-Hotel Hamburg
4 Hotel Sinclair
5 Acorn-Hotel
6 Hotel ROBOTRON
7 Hotel DOSPC-International
8 Hotel Olivetti
9 Hotel Apple
10 Hotel Linux
11 Hotel Terrific
12 Hotel Nixdorf
13 Weitere Hotels


Isn't that quite visionary? Yes, it ist! (Read the article, I have linked to the google to english translation in the table of content)

So here we go...

ATARI ANNOUNCES WORLD-CLASS VIDEO GAME-THEMED ATARI HOTELS First Atari Hotel to Begin Construction in Phoenix in Mid-2020

New York, NY (January 27, 2020) – Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and entertainment producers — today announced a deal with GSD Group — a leading innovation and strategy agency, led by founder Shelly Murphy and partner Napoleon Smith III — to acquire the rights to build video game-themed Atari Hotels in the United States, with the first location breaking ground in Phoenix, AZ later this year.

How comes? Why that? Has the new console, on which we already wait (do we?) longer times than we waited in old times for the release of the 1040STE, now completely failed?

(Note: Don't wonder on version history on Kamelopedia, I have to add that link there...)
