No lol I can't even imagine who would at that price point with such an unproven library next to the actual mainstream next gen options

This thing is an absolute disaster and has been for a while now. It offers no compelling exclusive software or reason to buy and is astonishingly overpriced when compared to what else is on the market. I don't usually wish for things to do poorly but I honestly hope very few people buy this and instead get a more valuable, long term option with their $400 and just buy the Atari collection on Steam for a couple bucks if they really want to play those games.

No, I won't be picking this up as:
1) I have no attachment or nostalgia for Atari.
2) Even if I did, $400 is lot for a console (IMO), that doesn't seem to have a lot of exclusives. At least it has other features other than playing games.
Also, Atari has been going downhill for as long as I can remember. It's bizarre that Midway went out business 10 years ago, yet (somehow) Atari is still around.

Please give Ninjala a chance, guys. Also, if you haven't played it since launch, please give it another chance. 🤔

Yeah, avoid this like the plague. It looks like they're unlikely to be shipping any units for retail sales this year in any case.

If you just want the games you can buy Atari Vault on Steam or Flashback Classics on most consoles for a heck of a lot less.

The Flashback mini consoles also do the job, but I don't think they're anywhere near as good as a NES or SNES Classic.

What about the Intellivision Amico? Not a single T or M rated game to be seen.

@Ninfan
Look at the reply above and also look down for some games included
The console will play more than 100 classic Atari games including Pong, Asteroids and Centipede, and can function as a mini PC that lets users install their own operating system. It also won't come cheap at $390 — that's nearly the price of a $399 PS5 Digital Edition and more expensive than a $299 Xbox Series S.

@Toy_Link
Not even interested by Intellvision games by the slightest.
Remember, i have completely different gaming taste
I didn't grow up by games like that.
