We live in a world full of copycats. From sports to business, music to film, if something is proven a winner there’s going to be somebody else that’s going to follow suit. With the enormous success of the Nintendo Classic last year, it was only a matter of time before other companies jumped on the bandwagon and released their own version.
If Nintendo can bring out the old school gamers, all the while gaining new fans with the Classic, why can’t Atari do the same thing? Well, that’s exactly what they’re doing with the Ataribox.
Not only are they going to be releasing this, they’re doing so in epic fashion by dropping two separate retro editions. One will be in the style of the Atari 2600 with the brown wood features. The other will come in red and black with a glass front panel.
