This leaves Nintendo as the only holdout, producing inferior hardware and banking on first party titles...
The spec sheet, as announced, is still pretty vague, but Atari has confirmed a few notable things, starting with a price point between $250 and $300. In exchange for costing roughly as much as a Nintendo Switch, Xbox One S, or PlayStation 4, the Ataribox will come packed with an "AMD customized processor with Radeon graphics technology." Additionally, this will not be an Android system. Instead, the Ataribox will run Linux "with a customized, easy-to-use user interface."
wink wink wink , linux hail yea. i said 2 years till new beginning and less then 1 it comming its comming soon... goodbye windows i love it... thumbs up for the future..
Fond memories. I also had the Commodore 128 with the Atari cartridge port on the back. Wait, computers could play consoles games directly? Is this the future? Always preferred "Omega Race" to "Asteriod", wonder if I still have that cartridge laying around somewhere?
commadore 64 games thats every single ibm game ever made... thats like hundreds of games plus.. they would never give those away that cheap.. unless they are the refabed type versions.. which ive seen and not the same but hey ya never know. i suppose. IBM
If you actually follow the link, you'd see the games included in the system. Also, since the IBM PC and it's MS-DOS compatible clones didn't become the predominant platform until the mid-80s. Because of that, several titles, like Hunter's Moon in this set were C64 only. Heart of Africa was another C64 only game, not included on the mini, but I have my 5.25 floppy still.
Hopefully, you still need to type in LOAD "*",8,1 to boot into a game.
