This leaves Nintendo as the only holdout, producing inferior hardware and banking on first party titles...


Ataribox aims high with $250-300 price point, Linux core, custom AMD chip | Ars Technica

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."
