The device has a HDMI port, four USB ports and SD card support.

But Atari have done things the other way round and now the only thing we really know about the Ataribox (yes, that's really what it's called) is that the case looks really cool.

Atari Releases A First Look at Upcoming Ataribox Games Console

Atari took the games industry by surprise earlier this month when it revealed that the company was working on a brand new console.

There are two versions: one uses the black and brown wood combination, while the other features a bright red on the front and back to match the dark top.

He scored 10 points on 4-5 shooting along with four rebounds and two assists in a Lakers 103-102 win against the 76ers. After a dud of a first game, he has the Lakers rolling with his up-tempo, spread-the-ball-around style of play.

According to the newsletter, the Ataribox will be of delivering both "classic" and "current gaming content".

Previously, Atari CEO Fred Chesnais told GamesBeat that the games company is "back in the hardware business". However, for the last 30 years, Atari has strayed away from console hardware. Could this result in a console similar to the myriad of Android boxes such as the Ouya and the Nvidia Shield TV or akin to Nintendo's retro efforts like the SNES or NES Classic?

Gamers have been wondering what Atari was thinking when they announced they were making a new console. However, Atari will also be providing what is being billed as "current content" to the console as well.

Unfortunately, there are no further details on pricing or availability, but we do know that the Ataribox can be had in the classic black/wood finish or in a more modern black/red color scheme. Perhaps Atari is going to republish some classics, or make a new game in retro style.

Beyond that, there's still much we don't yet no. Atari isn't yet discussing pricing details or a release date, nor is it sharing specific information about its games. "We're not teasing you intentionally; we want to get this right, so we've opted to share things step by step as we bring this to life, and to listen closely to the Atari community feedback as we do so".
