$199 USD for a console with completely anemic specs, no controller, and built by a gutted shell of the former Atari company? Ridiculous.

You are far better off buying a ps4 or xbox1. This product is the next Ouya.

Yeah I really don't think there's room for another console in the market. Nostalgia sells, but not overpriced nostalgia.

Speaking of - if anyone is ever in Seattle go visit the Living Computer Museum. Fantastic.

Yep, that is one expensive doorstop.

It already has sold to the tune of $2 million on a nerd-sucker kickstarter, and we're just referring to the mass market, which will almost certainly kick this POS to the curb,

Yeah, I was excited at first, until looking at the price and details. I’m all for buying stupid stuff on impulse, but there is a reason why the retro Nintendo’s sold - they were $79. Here in Canadian dollars. Sheesh.

I'd be cautious, beyond crowdfunding a console that may or may not come out there are next to no devs, you don't know if anything will come out even for it. Sure we'll get some cheap indie titles but for all we know it's another ouya.

The Atari name is just that, a name. This is just a cash in on those who have nostalgia for the brand.

I really really want one of these but to lay out cash for over a year and not even see what you are really getting is nuts.

It may be an awesome system - I can see classic games and downloadable new games creating a very cool system. I can see Fortnight on this system.

Happy to pay more and wait a year.

I suspect that this will be a lot more than just a nostalgia box for playing old atari games. It will probably be more along the lines of the NVidia Shield....capable processor, runs kodi, etc....
